ABF Puts Concession Demands on the Table

UPDATED December 21, 2012: ABF this week handed the International Union their wish list of take-aways. They’re all there: more subcontracting, part-timers, expand the use of surveillance, and more.

It’s a wish list which is dead-on-arrival, because there is no way members will accept any of it. Even the International union has said so.

The Trucker has a report on management’s proposal available here.

A City Wire report and an IBT bulletin are available here.  

ABF Teamsters voted down concessions in 2010 and are prepared to do so again.

The IBT negotiating team needs to stand firm and keep ABF Teamsters and their brothers and sisters at YRC and Holland informed and involved at every step of the negotiating process.

Concerned ABF Teamsters – and other freight Teamsters, too – can stay informed and get involved by signing up for regular e-mail updates at NoFreightConcessions.org.
