EMAIL TO ME AND NOW TO ALL YOU GOOD OLE TEAMSTERS OUT THERE! “The closer the layoff and loss of work gets to some, the more active they become.” Forwarded in an email to me from a local driver: The following information is regarding contractors picking up local freight at one of our customers DDS in Stead [Nevada]. I was also told that our representatives [sales people] for this account told them that we have to send contractors up there to pick up because quote “The Company can't get any of the union drivers to go up and pick up the freight ". I could not get the informant to put that in writing; however, I was able to get my hands on the dates, amount of skids, the pro numbers for these individual shipments, the number of trailers used, and the destination! The proof is solid trust me, but they want to remain anonymous.

This is just another example of the brazen contract abuse of UPS Freight and another example of violations of Article 43 and 44. Now THE COMPANY is cutting out local P & D drivers and dockworkers from work. These displaced employees will join in the fray as their jobs and income are affected. THE COMPANY and THE BROWN UNION will move a grievance, regarding this, up the ladder through continuum of process to ultimate deadlock. Same old story, same old musical chairs and the same old dog and pony show. Keep paying those dues and look for forth-coming golf scores, between THE COMPANY and THE BROWN UNION and little action through the grievance process.
