ABF TEAMSTERS VOTE NO ON CONCESSIONS

May 24, 2010: ABF Teamsters have rejected the proposed 15% wage cut, by a vote of 3,764 to 2,936, according to reports from observers at the vote count.

Most large locals decisively voted No, including Chicago Locals 710 and 705, Atlanta Local 728, Carlisle Pennsylvania Local 776, Little Rock Local 878, and even Dallas Local 745, the home base of Freight Director Tyson Johnson.

ABF Teamsters will remain under the NMFA contract wage, as we await the next move by the company and the International Union.

Thanks to the rank and file observers for assuring a democratic and fair vote. TDU.org will post detailed vote results as soon as they are compiled.
