Re: Central States PENSION CRISIS
Local# 41 member,31yrs total:17 1/2 yrs with Graves Truck Line/ANR/Coastal; 2yrs with Hyman Freightways and last 12yrs.with ABF Freight System. Went through at least three contract strikes.walked picket duty numerous times in KC area, on site picketing during the Overnite campaign and a "little extra" also. What really chaps my butt is the lack of organizing "significant" and "MAJOR" Truck lines and Warehousing facilities across this great country of ours. R&L trucking,Estes trucking,American Freight (Kansas),Con Way(who was CF freightways);let them slip away and reorganize as ConWay freight.The list goes on and on across America------no organizing. Guess the International in D.C. thought we had plenty enough money already in the pension fund so they made token organizing of a small companies or offices here and there.Now that's real organizing, isn't retired teamsters???? BULL!!!! Organizers at all levels need to get up off their backsides and do SOMETHING !!!!! Get there and really organize some major lines and start earning YOUR future pension TOO.
