I worked for OAKH durning the 08 strike. I must say that not all union guys or women are bad. SOME acted with dignity, respect and with out intimidation of others. Most of you are worthless. If you think that calling, threating and yelling at people is something you should do to make a point, you are wrong. Just like you others have to feed, pay bills and do what they need to do to survive in this ugly world.
The VanderPols deserved so much more than what the union gave them during the strike. You all should be ashamed of yourselves. If you can wake up everyday and look at yourself and be okay with the way you acted or lets just say if you saw your children doing and acting as you were, would you be proud? I think not.
What is funny is I got a new job after I lost my position at OAKH to a young lady who came back to work. It was hard, my feelings were hurt bc I had to endure name calling....being called names that I have never been called, and I lost my job to people like you. But I dusted my self off, held my head high and left it all up to God. Something your union should consider doing in the future. God does things for crazy reasons. But he always has a meaning for everything and always has a path for everyone.
God will judge every single one of you. He holds the power on weather or not you will stand by him proudly with your head held high.
I wonder how you guys would feel if your daughter, wife or mother went to work and was sexually harrassed day in and day out. Being called a slut, tramp, scab whore.
How dare you think that you and your union are in the right. You all are nothing but a bunch of pathetic losers who act like you are young boys going through puberty.
I pray for you now and always, just like I did while I crossed that line everyday to go in and work.
May God have mercy on all of you. Dont take this message as hate but God has taught me to never hate anyone. I just plain feel sorry for you.
Roberto Elias, you are a great man! I am honored to have worked beside you and to have been apart of your life. You are a true blessing as are the others who came from other terminals to work for the VanderPols.

Hey get back to work, it is selfish for you to think that you should demand somthing from an employer with no concern for the employers cost. If you have been under a log all year you wouldnt know that the trucking industy has been hit hard by the economy. Driver are loosing they're jobs and trucking companies are going out of business. It would be better to conceed now and bargin later when things are better. They are probably trying to save you jobs by cutting cost.

<quoted text>Go back to your .25 pennies per mile and your cobra. The lot lizards are calling.
you will be working for that amount (.25 pennies) before to long, when your company cuts your pay. unless your working for a strong stable company, you will probably be working for that amount running on an illegal log so your company can survive and compete with the 3 big boys of the industry.
if you guys didn't think you were worth 50-6O cpm the trucking industry would not have to hire so many new drivers. we are living in an expanded economy. did you not remember back in the early 80,s when your father was driving when the trucking industry was de-regulated?

You know nothing about which you are speaking. The company wants to take away teamster insurance and pension not only from the current employee but also retiree. YOUR terminal is not union therefore you do not give a rats ass what happens. They are not asking for anything new in the contract just want to keep what they already have in place. Please feel free to share what you think OHF does for the employees that they shouldnt??
<quoted text>
wow, the teamsters not only have your husband brainwashed, they have you brainwashed too!

i wonder if the local teamster union leaders are required to have a degree in psychology? they sure are doing a good job of creating this 1970,s way of thinking.
