  1. hey heard a rumor that the southwestern feeder drivers are going on strike in November.
    Anyone have any info on this?
    Also some of you guys that have seen this before what would it look like? Doesn’t seem to me like it would have that big of an impact because couldn’t UPS just contract out the work while they are on strike?
    Of course maybe it will. I always over hear them in the radio trying to get a feeder to come in and move a truck so maybe they are short handed as it is

    Feeder drivers are not going on strike. You may be confusing then with freight drivers. Though I'm sure they are not going on strike either.
     
  4. what about Chicago? Is it local 704 or something. I heard they are taking a strike vote next month

    I believe it's 710 and 705. They haven't even voted on their contract yet.

    Exactly. Why strike UPS? It's the union that pooched us.

    If they’d all go on a diet together I think we could save entire starving nations

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    From everything I've heard they told the company 22.4 are a no go for them and don't bother coming to the table until
    They are off the table.
