There was a DVD that was distributed back in May that got Hoffa all pissy. Yes, it's old news.
The dude has a point. I don't know particulars but if Overnite has been sucessful as a non-union shop why organize now?
I know when he says "flexiablity" he means long hours at weird times but its to serve customers so the business is profitable so the employees have jobs and pensions.
Because some people don't know how good they have it.If everything they guy was saying is true then I'd wonder why them boys over at UPS Freight would even consider inviting the Teamsters in. The strike images alone are enough to turn most people away.
my bad! i forgot to add a "not" into the OP. i'm saying the exact opposite.hoser, are you saying that if ups wasnt associated with a union that management would ease up a bit, the company would be more layed back?????
All the VP said was "this is what the union will do" "unionizing is VERY serious and not appropriate for our kind of industry" "this is the other (and what I see to be the true) side of the teamsters" and "don't get intimidated". Pretty much: 'the grass isn't always greener on the other side'. I wouldn't call this "actively fighting", it's just good management that's fighting for what they believe in.I wonder how overnite gets away with this type of action. I always thought it was a violation of the NLRB laws for a company to actively fight unionization.
You mite better take another look.This is what we had to put up with from the fellow brother hood.But as you can see we survived and will be around a long long time without the scum bag IBT!I have to say the employees at UPS frieght are some of the hardest,proud,loyal working people UPS could have ever invested in.UPS got the best frieght company money could buy.Overnite didn't get away with anything.I hope the IBT is paying dearly for all the employees that they injured during their THUG FEST.First time I've seen this video. Pretty eye opening. The pension arguments it makes score points. Why would anyone want to join the central states plan and end up with less.

I guess your opinion should be the only.If Fedxs is such a great company why haven't you gone over?I will tell you more than likely you wouldn't survive.You are the employee who needs the IBT to protect your big fat lazy a--.I here all these people on here complain about UPS.Im starting to believe the reason you need the union is because your a SLACKER and the company would have gotten rid of you by now.I've never heard of Overite (AKA "UPS Freight") being the best freight company. Most customers I've talked with say FexEx Freight is the best. I was hearing that when they were still American Freight Lines.
