    Default Teamsters Featured on 60 Minutes

    I know we have another thread devoted to this topic but this is specifically about Teamsters.

    Teamster Members and Representative Talk About Importance of Jobs, Safety as Companies Work to Automate Truck Driving

    Teamsters were featured on 60 Minutes Sunday night, in an important segment on the future of trucking and the development of 'driverless' trucks. Teamster truck drivers who are members of Local 512 in Jacksonville, Fla. spoke about the skill that goes into their profession and what it means to be a truck driver. Teamsters Legislative Representative Sam Loesche spoke about the lack of transparency in the testing of automated trucks on our public roads. The Teamsters Union is outspoken on the importance of a driver in the cab, the importance of good working conditions for truck drivers, and is engaged in raising the voices of drivers on Capitol Hill and in states and communities around the country.

    I still believe that as long as a computer can be hacked they should keep these automated trucks off the highways
