Question: how many Teamsters on this board were asked if they agreed to giveback 8 months of our current 8/1/2002 thru 7/31/2008 before the Teamsters negotiating committee met with the company? Considering that Mr. Hoffa personally made a statement on September 11th 2007 in a joint press conference indicating that the agreement with the CS fund, the Teamsters and UPS would have no direct affect on the remaining contract or its provisions, later its secretly revealed that they gave up 8 months of the curent contract without consulting "us" first. This should upset us all. There was never any mention of this in all the months leading up to negotiations. How many Teamsters on this board understand the ramifications of losing 8 months of our current contract? I am just curious to see how people are viewing this element of the agreement. Peace.
