    I deliver to homes every day, even the big screen TV's. It looks like some of my job is getting farmed out to scabs.

    This sounds as if they'll be going after a lot of new freight that somebody else is moving the big majority of now and that the movement of it would basically be pickup and road. Although Teamster, you may soon be delivering many more TVs and other freight to STI and let them do the inside deliveries. Who knows?

    I think I would rather the work be ours, kinda seems ballish of them to announce the unlikelihood of non-union pay cuts and diversion of Teamster work (all we need is the proper equipment to preform these deliveries) all in the same week we will be voting on the second round of concessions. I guess they are pretty sure these concessions will be approved by a great margin.

    Of course it would be best if all of the work was ours. What I'm hoping about this is that STI is giving freight that they previously gave to somebody else. It won't be our saving grace but it could put more people back to work, I hope.

    I'm not reading it like UPack, it says from businesses to consumers, my guess is major retailers is what they are going after, white glove typically carries a large payment. Basically we will be delivering and installing or putting together some entertainment systems. I don't know about this one.
