    Good luck.

    Amazon as a driver has 0 job security.

    I’d take a 22.4 Position. But this contract will never go through...

  10. You know Hoffa will pull something, if 243 votes it down.

    Most of Amazon's drivers are contractors. They use them up for as many years as possible then cut them loose for the younger faster driver later. Your jobs security is only as good as your last delivery with Amazon.

    With UPS we have a contract that helps protect drivers from unfair production standards. UPS can't decide to start cutting your hours or put you on a horrible route to get you to quit.

    Our shop steward was telling us about some type of third strike rule regarding a third no vote by them?
     
  14. A third no vote is considered a strike vote, I believe.

    Well that would be interesting.

    A 3rd no would authorize a strike vote for the affected local only.

    This won't happen though because it will be imposed. The IBT will not take the chance of losing the retro money for local 243.
