Carhaul Members to Vote on Concessions at Jack Cooper Transport

Teamsters employed under the national carhaul contract by Jack Cooper Transport are going to face a hard decision next week, as proposed concessions will be unveiled.

On Monday, August 5, local union officials will learn of the proposed contract modifications via a conference call, which will replace the traditional “two person” meeting of all locals. The members will be informed after that time, and via an open members’ call at 8 pm (eastern time) Monday conference call. 

Jack Cooper has lost business and is facing pressure from its lenders. We all know that workers are often called upon to accept cuts due to mismanagement.  

Members should be on the call and get informed as to the proposed contract concessions, and cast a vote.

Labor Notes: NLRB Attacks Rights of Stewards

The decision upends the special legal protections enjoyed by union grievance handlers for the past 70 years."
