But then I'm probably justs reading too much into it.Eskew said:Eskew also wrote, "If at some point our UPS Freight employees choose to be represented by the (Teamsters) or any other union, we will deal with that union in the same manner we deal with our current unionized workforce—fairly and honestly, with a goal of sustainable growth."
Now wouldn't that be interesting! It is a perfect opportunity for those guys to be sure.over9five said:Excellent opportunity for APWA to get a foot in the door.
Hate to be conspiratorial but is Mike just using these 2 Overnite fellas as cover? Nothing to prove it in any way but it's not out of the question IMO either!wiley said:Wonder if the two head guys at Freight will get chewed out since Eskew is claiming he didn't authorize it.
The DvD was a surprise for me, it seems foolish to send an anti-union DvD to a company that has 22-1 ratio, union vs non-union work force. Suggs and Hoffa hate each other, and I think it is safe to say that the upper managers of UPS freight will soon be replaced by UPS men. UPS is not going to piss of its bread and butter work-force for the sake of a new asset that is only 4.3% of the entire companys bottom line. Ups spent more money on 4 new transport aircraft than the whole cost of UPS Freight. UPS Freight is a chip in the poker game. Mike Eskew said that if freight employees want to join a union then he would work for an honest productive end.That is better than anything that Suggs ever gave his teamster employees.wkmac said:And FDX's up $5.
