    Because the teamster managers need to be paid 2x-10x+ more than working people

    Last time I checked, the union members pay the salaries of these union officials that are supposed to represent and protect us.

    It's sorta like UPS pays us to do a job. If we don't do said job we get, eventually, fired.

    I know it's confusing.

    That's why there are Local elections every 3 years. Don't like your Local situation ?

    Run for office.... @Bubblehead did, and is now President of a 5000 man Local.

    Yes there are but it’s in the book that the Teamsters do not enforce.

    If you’re in a RTW, stop paying dues until they want to work for you. We have to work for our money, they do to.

    This isn't the girl scouts.

    Got a problem.... file a grievance.... and be involved with the process.


    That's really going to fix things.

    Don't like the refs call, pick up your ball and go home? Not every decision is going to go the way you think it should.

    As I mentioned my business agent doesn't give me any information. I just now found out that a grievance I filed 2 months ago under his instruction is wrong. Filed five that day four were right the one for the most money was allegedly wrong. Now it's been so long and my situation has gotten so rough that I don't have the time or the resources to figure out who's bull:censored2:ting who here...

    I'm sorry to hear that. It's a bad work environment often. Hang in there.

    the only problem with that article 17 language is how does the member know when the settlement date was and when the 10 day window has expired.
