Teamsters United has launched the ABF Teamsters United website with news and updates about the ABF contract, including contract proposals and strike authorization votes.
The International Union and ABF have been in contract negotiations for over a month. ABF Teamsters need to be ready to fight.
The Union has put forward strong proposals. ABF has responded with concessions. The company knows their givebacks will never be accepted by the members. They are probing the Hoffa administration for weakness and trying to distract the members from our own bargaining demands.
The IBT needs to stand behind our proposals and mobilize the members, not back down or settle short.
“The company’s outrageous and insulting demands show they are not getting the message. Members are not taking givebacks again. We are fighting for a good contract, and we're not backing down,” said Fred Zuckerman, the leader of Teamsters United.
How You Can Help Win a Good Contract
The company needs to see that members are getting involved and that we will back our union negotiators when they fight for improvements and that we will Vote No if they settle short or submit another substandard deal.
You can build our leverage to win a good contract by informing and involving other members. Forward this email. Share ABF Teamsters United information on facebook and social media. Spread the word where you work.
