ABF Members Approve Five of the Remaining Supplements
The seven supplements were initially voted down and re-voted over the past several weeks, with ballots counted today. The five that were approved in the re-vote are Central Region Over-the-Road Freight; Southern Region Area Local Freight Forwarding Garage; Joint Council 40; Carolina Freight Council Over-the-Road; and New Jersey-New York Area LU-701.
The two supplements that were not approved are the Central Region Local Cartage and the Western States Office Employees—Part V.
The national master portion of the ABF National Master Freight Agreement has previously been approved, but will not take effect until the status of the two remaining supplements is resolved.
