ABF: 30-Day Contract Extension

March 28, 2013: ABF and the International Union have agreed to extend the contract until the end of April. The old contract terms will remain in effect.

Bargaining continues with the company in the driver’s seat, focusing on concessions being demanded by management on operations, unbalanced freight lanes, and more.  Supplemental bargaining has proceeded also.

Bargaining on economics (wages, pensions, health and welfare) has apparently not taken center stage yet.

In a conference call with local union leaders today, IBT International vice president Gordon Sweeton and IBT staffers stated that the company needs relief and that another call will be held in two weeks to update local officers on the negotiations.
