Ok time to get nasty now,,,,,why was there a Union meeting a few weeks ago to ask there members about cut backs from ABF....when it was clearly stated that Locals all agreed not to open up this contract for another 3 years.......Union stewards called other Locals on there own time and got the same answer from other Union stewards around the world and now this???? Looks like a deal has been in the making for awhile now and it doesn't care about what we say.....GREED and money under the table to make deals and screw the hard working men and women that make the Teamsters what they are today........WAKE UP BROTHERS AND SISTERS AND VOTE NO!!!!!!! ABF WILL MAKE MONEY THIS YEAR THEY WANT TO MAKE A FAST DEAL HERE TO MAKE IT LOOK GOOD FOR THEM AND SCREW US! VOTE NO!!!!! AND I HATE TO SAY THIS TOO BUT THE UNION DOES WHAT THEY WANT TO DO AND NOT WHAT US THE PEOPLE WANT TO DO!!!!!!!!!! (((VOTE NO TO ANY KICKBACKS)))
