    We realize your hall may be too far away for some , or the meeting may be during your work or sleep hours.

    Never been, It's 4 hours to the hall and I'm not driving that far, Maybe if it were a Saturday meeting.

    They do have a monthly informational meeting that is only an hour away but I'm still working when it starts,.....

    However I do stay in touch with the BA on a regular basis,....

    Our hall is just around the corner from our barn. General membership is the first Tuesday of the month at 1900 and the freight meeting is the first Thursday of the month at 0830, 1400, and 1800.

    Should have an "all" button for those of us that do go to all our meetings.

    Ours is about a two to three hour drive,not many from our barn go besides the steward who stays at mom's house for the weekend..When I was at Redstar ,different local, I made just about every meeting as the barn was across the street.. I work in a barn full of measters..and most don't care one thing about the union...mostly because of increased co-pays on the medical,decreased money for the pension credits and now finding out not getting pension credits for the 25% that YRC is paying..over the last few years..

    Up until three years ago I attended every meeting. Three years ago I transferred to a location where the hall was 8 hours away and didn't attend any of the meetings. Fast forward to now and I will attend every meeting that Local 710 has and look forward to all of them. Great topic!!!
