    If there is a strike authorized? Now that you are retired whatcha gonna do?

    I will go support the guys walking the line! Of course I will sit in a chair and pass out doughnuts or sunflower seeds for my entertainment.

    Probably talk about the good old days!
    Mind you only to help keep them motivated that you don't want to lose any more in any contracts!

    So will you walk with your Brother's?

    I'm not too sure that sentiment holds true anymore, this isn't the Marines. There are some Teamsters who aren't real Teamsters.

    well , technically I don't pay dues anymore so am not a Teamster anymore but I think you know what I mean.

    I may be old and a beech but am an ol school thru and thru beech.

    We have Teamsters now who seem to forget where the bread and butter comes from who are turning their backs on the members faster than a hooker turns tricks. Just because they were once Teamsters doesn't mean they still are. Your membership status was not what I was referring to but thanks for being old and being a beetch! lol

    I’ll be there in my old brown shirt with the Olympic Rings above the pocket and the sleeves cutout like a vest

    Wore one like it to the last strike
    Boss told me that was desecrating UPS property

    I told him it’s not a flag and flipped him the bird

    Ahh good times!!

    As someone that worked for non union companies for half of my working life , i did not get the job at UPS until I was almost 38 years old. I appreciate everything the Teamsters did for me and my family and never took the benefits for granted.

    I don't always agree with Teamster leadership but if they do call for a strike , I will gladly walk the picket line.

    I hope these retirees man up by putting on an extra absorbent diaper and walking.

    I will always be a proud Teamster (even though after you retire they would just as soon see you die).

    I would probably be the first one to the picked line with a case of beer.

    No Security Guards. Maybe they will help prevent scabs from crossing the line.
