    My center started hiring new employees this week to over-staff the shift in a RTW state. It appears to me that the company is preparing for a strike.

    Considering you're a new loader and you'll be unemployed if we strike, not sure why you'd post this.

    No, we had a parking lot meeting with steward, he's advocating we vote no. He said hybrid top rate is 30$ and that they're trying to convince part timers this will make more full time jobs for them

    I hope they kept their plans. Once the part timers see this TA its gonna be a tough sell to vote no. Trust me.


    I'm also hearing their rider is all set this time as well.
