    The company is implementing work slow downs this week and possible strike looming when members were slated to get gains on the contract. People might not come back to a job due to loss of volume as well. I always said a no vote could make our contract in package better or worse but there is alaways a risk involved. The whole idea of turning down a first offer on a contract like a car is bad advice. TDU had people fired up to vote no long before negotiations even started. Keep a close eye on the UPS Freight contract and see how UPS makes their moves. If it does go to a strike I hope all you vote no lawyers in package will be on the line with our brothers and sisters in freight! I know I will.

    I don’t know much about Freight, but they do operate at a vastly different scale than Package (11K-ish drivers?) and are lightest on volume during the holiday season when workplaces are busy with Christmas parties, no?

    I’m of the impression that given the above, comparing what could happen and when if a Freight strike occurred can’t really be extrapolated to what would happen in Package.

    Could be wrong. Educate an imbecile!

    The situation in freight was NEVER going to be package, ever. You're borderline delusional if you think that. They couldn't even scare people into a yes vote with the bull:censored2: instant strike, downsize and job loss rhetoric.

    Go away.

    Look at all of you rolling out of the TDU clown car. Seriously you guys didn’t know jack during our contract and now you are trying to tell Freight guys how to vote. Completely laughable! You guys are the reason nobody should listen to social media when deciding on a contract. You don’t give a :censored2: about our UPS Freight brothers and sisters or their families. Your just a bunch of vote no parrots without a brain in the bunch.

    Never? Glad to see you have everything all figured out. Tell me have you ever been a steward, Business Agent or voted in for anything by your Teamster brothers or are you just an internet know it all?

    About 50,000 people had it figured out by voting no, despite your bull:censored2: d-day rhetoric if they did. Anyone who thought package was ever headed this way needs to pull their head out of their ass. Package profits are climbing. The company just invested more than $10 billion into new aircraft. Anyone with a shred of common sense knows what happened, is exactly what was always going to happen. Stop pretending like there was a chance it was ever going to be anything else.

    I was on the picket line in 97, don't patronize me.

    No, I know so. The amount of employees in freight and competition is completely different, making leverage completely different. If you don’t understand the difference, you are either being dishonest or dumber than DT.

    You mean you did your job and filed grievances? Does that make you some noble human being or something? You also did your job and spewed the bull:censored2: your union boss told you to without using your brain, and listening to your members..

    That pretty much makes you one of his many personal puppets.. Gold star for you. I think you've found your calling, now get off your knees.
