    Default Teamster challenge to T.J O'Conner

    Mr O'Conner
    We have seen the Videos,heard your request for cooperation now hear what we have to say,for many years dating back to Bill Call opening service into SoCal the company has waged a war of disparage against the union employee's of Reddaway that continues under your leadership,now I would like to believe you personally are not responsible for this but as the CEO you are in a unique position to unite what has become a fractured and dysfunctional company,we are not treated with the same respect and dignity you afford the Non's,case in point at LAX
    1. Oldest Fleet of Trucks at a California Terminal,majority of new trucks were assigned to Non's,appx 20 at LOS alone,new trucks given to shuttle drivers,short haul lanes in Central Valley while our Senior Bid Drivers struggle with old BestWay Equipment.
    2.Closed 2nd largest repair shop in Calif,so our trucks are gone for weeks at a time to LOS,a 2 door garage,for a simple service and how can daily repairs be made by vendors while trucks are out?,company line was that new equip always went to Terminals without repair facilities?
    3.Refusal to re-zone service area that would service are customers more efficiently but ultimately require the hiring of more Teamsters,again disparage over what's best for the customer and company and overwhelming LOS which has become a traffic jam for LineHaul at night while LAX is quiet.
    4. Another interesting tidbit that are vending machine prices are higher than the Non's,is this a subversive effort to literally nickel and dime us more?
    So many issues we deal with on a daily basis that Management has created a whole segment of our company that will only do the minimum that is required,no more,no less and with the same disregard as demonstrated by company,there was one day in recent past that everyone was smiling,laughing and having a great time and that was when we walked out the gate in support of FON.Our challenge to you Mr O'Conner is take a moment and ask yourself how would you vote if you were in our shoes?we all would like our company to succeed but most days we feel like The Ugly Reddaway Stepchildren of this company and therefor cooperation is not in our nature but you alone can change that and make Reddaway a company united,that is your challenge Mr O'Conner.

    I heard through the Reddaway Vine that Mr O'Connor is visiting LAX this morning and unfortunately my work schedule did not allow me to be there and personally address the issues and others that I posted yesterday,would like to believe Mr O'Connor read the post and decided to come and discuss with everyone what his plan is to Unite us as one Team.One Company,you see the ones you ask the most from are the ones you treat the worst yet many have spent years even decades here,have you ever wondered why that is so,well we come from a different generation,a different cut of cloth,one that commits to a company,enjoys the benefits of senority,expects a honest days pay for a difficult and skilled job,to be able to maintain our health,something to look forward to in our golden years and last but not least for our company to make a respectable profit so that we can obtain all this,we chose to be represented by the IBT so that what we help build isn't reduced to a minimum wage steering wheel holding job that so many companies have become.Equitable Sacrifice is a condition of contract proposal and believe me we have sacrificed more than most for our beliefs,now once again my challenge to you Mr O'Connor is to spread the equipment,freight,respect,dignity equally among all the employees,take a close look and you will see the inequality that divides,fractures and creates a great sense of animosity amongst us all,do this and you will reap the rewards of a Company United.

    Problem is.......He doesn't respect the nons either. They just treat them a bit better because he doesn't want them to be represented either. He is just a douche!!!!
