ABF tentative agreement coming soon?

May 2, 2013: The International union continues to bargain with ABF, and it looks like a tentative agreement may come soon. We will continue to provide any information available so that members can make an informed decision in the vote.

Most supplements have been settled; others are being finalized.

In a conference call today with union officials, lead negotiator Gordon Sweeton said the International union is working to keep members’ pension and health and welfare benefits intact. Sweeton directed local unions not to take any strike votes.

A deal may be in the offing. Stay informed. Stay united.
