    Default Has Hoffa given up on freight??

    ABF Contract Shows Hoffa-Hall Have Given Up on Teamster Power | Teamsters for a Democratic Union

    The Record

    They misled ABF Teamsters and sold management's deal.

    They lied to UPS Freight Teamsters and when the members rejected their deal, Hoffa-Hall went into hiding for two months.

    It looks like a secret deal with YRC may be in the works, and Hoffa cares more about his hedge-fund pal Harry Wilson than YRC Teamsters.

    Maybe he is wanting to sell the movie rights to all of this... What a POS this bunch of so called leaders are...





    Only time he does make a statement is when he is backed in to a corner...

    You do not have to bail on trucking brother , just switch over to a construction local , we do very well , I left the freight business 15 years ago once I saw the difference in money and benefits that were in construction , and have been happy ever since .

    im tempted to do just that. soon as i sell everything. im giving this place 1-2 years and see what the next contract holds. but road drivers really need a boost for all the crap we run into.

    I feel the same also, I want out of YRC and a truck. Just can't make any type of move now. To many people in my wallet. And I do feel Freight is on the back burner at the IBT now.

    I totally agree with you guys that Hoffa does not give a damned about freight. I post so many news links a day and very few have to do with freight teamsters because nothing is happening with freight teamsters except for new lousy contracts. Just right now I have posted three articles all having to do with teamsters that are not freight and it is like this everyday.
