Really, THIS is what you guys should be looking for. The guys praying, cheerleading, and hoping for a strike IMO, aren't thinking it through. (Seriously, some of you sound idiotic). We PAY those negotiators a boatload of money to do their job. Let's allow them to do it before we want a strike. Remember, if we strike: The negotiators continue to get paid. UPS management continues to get paid. Teamster management continues to get paid. It's only us that won't get paid, because THEY couldn't get the job done. Now I voted to authorize a strike. If the negotiators really come to an impasse, I'm walking. I'm old, my house is paid off, I have no mortgage, and I have plenty of money in the bank. I could be out a long time with no worries. But some of you young guys will be in some deep doo doo. Say we're out 3 months, that's a lot of bills piling up, and you low seniority people may not be called back for even longer. I suspect that if a strike went long, everyone would be called back for Peak, but big time layoffs after. Just something to think about. Hope instead that those negotiators will come out with a fantastic contract for us!
