You have Osama Bin Ladin, the Ceo of B.P oil company and now you have John Poole president of Daycon. What do all three have in common ? They do not CARE.

Just like Bin Ladan, The CEO of BP will pay for all of their mistakes so will Daycon... It does not make any sense that this company chose to let their hard working employees strike instead of coming to a median... Why??? They need to remember who was there for them in the Rain, Sleet and Snow making the deliveries and loading those trucks.. Daycon is a slave driving company that allowed a "KEY" (Jodie K.) person come into their company and change the company for what the stood for to what she stands for which is "fakeness" and "bullshit". You cant be mad at those on the line because they are standing up for what they feel as though is right... Just like we all do on a daily basis we dont let people run over us why should they. Keep up the faith everyone and make sure that your message is heard. Instead of 55 people being on the line maybe Daycon should have given "Jodie" the boot and yall would not be on the line now. Send her ass to the unemployement office and let her see how it feels to be without. John Poole, Howard Cohen, Bobbie Cohen stop the madness, open your eyes, you are loosing all of this money cause of what you "KEY" person is telling you. You probally spent more on temp empolyees, overtime pay and more that you would have by just listening to your empolyees and giving in some.. Man the FUCK UP...Stop letting that BITCH run your business.

Well we are still at it people... you have a few people that were able to go back to work at Daycon... These were the "FEW" that did not receive letters.. Did we every think that the union was in on this with Daycon just to get rid of the people that Daycon did not want any more... YA THINK... This is just crazy.... At this point you cant think of any thing else... A bunch of slicksters. You have hard workers on the line still fighting for whats right.. You have Daycon bringing in a bunch of people with have to learn the systems just to get by, Daycon still paying the "FAKE" security loads of money to watch their property.. All this money they could have given to their employees.. What are we coming to... This madness has to stop go to the table make it work.. FOR THE BEST OF ALL

It seems very silly to go on strike given the current economy. What retard can't go out and get a cdl license. Its not hard. Probably 80% of the unemployed could obtain one and fill these positions. The only inside knowledge the strikers have is where the closets are located. How long would it take until a chimp could be trained to find them? Not sure of everything your striking for but what I do know is your union failed you and is just trying to get the "scabs" to join their union to replace the lost union dues. Wake up the union did what for you? Sure as hell didn't feed your family with your tiny pay checks.

All that's left out there it seems are the people daycon could do without! all the good drivers are back and some of the bad ones. Some can't get their routes back b/c as it turns out the "scabs" are better harder working employees.

If your not happy at a job why go on strike just quit and go somewhere else. Why make it difficult on everyone else.
