All good news comes with "strings". Perhaps larger routes to offset the need for as many drivers. Wishing the best for our drivers, but unions are not always the answer.
from talk I hear around town it may be the answer, onl time will tell. I'm not saying any of this will happen, just saying don't be suprised at anything.

the union is out to destroy your life. It is nothing but bad. Just ask all its members... It has just hurt them so much.... Taken everything from them.

There not all happy with how it works for a few. I have talked to more than a few and it's not just the teamsters. Unions used to be strong but greed and corruption has turned them into a private bank account for a select few .

Compared to corporate greed, really? If you heard some of the stories these drivers have dealt with you'd have a different stance on that. All they are asking for is a fair wage, respect, and seniority. That's not too much to ask for from any employer.

They wanna cut wages for the working class while the CEO gets a $10 million bonus.

Where's the outcry from the Occupiers?
