    Default NMFA 50th Anniversary

    January 15, 2014. Today is the 50th anniversary of the National Master Freight Agreement, first signed on this date in 1964. It covered 400,000 Teamsters and was the culmination of decades of organizing, starting with the courageous Minneapolis strikers of 1934.

    The decline of the NMFA came from a number of sources. Attacks from corporations, the deregulation of 1980 set the stage. But the cruelest cut was the abandonment of trucking Teamsters by none other than Hoffa’s son: James P. Hoffa.

    And in 50 years his spawn has reduced it to nothing.

    James R. Hoffa is going to kick Jr's ass at the pearly gates.

    The quote should have read ...January 15, 2014. Today would have been the 50th anniversary of the National Master Freight Agreement

    RIP NMFA
