    Just looking at past articles it mentions trucks were out on route during the 2 1/2 week strike of 1997. Also are those drivers still targeted to this day?

    Yeah, see how many responses you get of, "yeah, I was a scab and crossed the line and drove." I can say for sure I was not one of them.

    Our sups would leave in a pc and go get lunch then come back to the center. August + Deep South + Morbidly obese center manager = extremely low sporh.

    I heard it was all just management driving around in empty cars. Just to keep the image up.

    It was all management here. They offered to send us to different locations, that way no one would know. Nope I'll pass. Besides we had strike duty that your absence would definitely be noticed.

    I did some stuff when we were on strike in 97 and I shoulda probably got arrested. And I wouldn't take any of it back.

    I went with my dad to the picket line when I was about 12. It was fun, ate burgers and dogs. That was the first time I heard someone use the F word in every other sentence.

    Nome of our drivers crossed the picket line. We didn't do much other than taking turns walking the line and cooking out on grills.
