With degenerates like you making deliveries to their stores, it's not surprising that Big Y canceled the contract with C&S.

good post TBI. when i drove for c and s i made sure i represented the company every day. in every way. what happened is too many other drivers got this attitude that brought the whole place down. now if Rick did the right thing he would get rid of this cancer so the rest of the decent workers could thrive.

but as usuall, the majority rules and the rest suffer so go figure. i guess its the American way.

The C&S employees should have gone Union ,like them or not they would have had some sort of protection ,now they have nothing and it's getting worse.They have a plant in PA that went from 360 people to 80 and all the selecting is automated.Cut saleries from 18 to 12 dollares and hout ,no benies!

C&S is the worst place to work ever. Very physical, pay problems all the time, no room for advancement and extremely unsanitary conditions. They boot you out when there is no work and force you extra when their is....even the middle management knows how bad it is...check out all the resumes on monster. F U Rick

Come on, they got to be a safety risk or accident rich environment, why donít you go on a campaign to report violations to OHSA or the Department of Transportation. They are trying to reform these agencies across the board in order to be more sympathetic to the employees. There could be some conspiracy between ex employees and current employee...C&S will get the message that they canít push you around anymore.

When you're not Union it is extremely hard to file complants with OHSA and be listen too,other then getting a lawyer and sueing it's almost impossible.

That is so old school...we got a black president today.

I got OSHA to visit the Hinsdale Wal-Mart about a year ago and write them a letter...with a mandatory response.

The Teamster will tell you, you got to begin the organizing yourself, you got to get the majority of employees to sign that you want the teamsters to represent them. They want to see that you are committed before they step in.
