Yes, I'm a Teamster-for 30 years. However, I'm 180 opposed to probably 100% of their politics. I don't like the local(local). I'm not a Democrat, commie, socialist, liberal, gay or other myriad fringe groups. And yet, my dues go directly against my very being. I'm paying to cut my own throat. Yet, you have the whole contract thing and getting your job back.......I mentioned this to a fellow feeder driver the other day and he's pretty much quit talking to me(a quasi BA wanna be). I've been eyeing that $70(whatever it is)dues and pretty much figure I'd be sold down the river by my local if anything ever happens as they have shown to be very punitive against anyone who has a chance to take away their big suv's and plush gig. I'm fully vested and if, I'm walked out the gate.......I'm ready? BTW-I happen to like alot of the fellow teamsters. Like them personally. Although the ultra teamster all or nothing guys.......can be real a-hole, forget who pays your fat salary....forget where you came from types. Thanks.
