Carhaul Negotiations Resume September 16

September 5, 2008: Teamster negotiators will meet with the national carhaul employers on September 16-19 at Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, following the decisive rejection of the concessionary first offer last month.

Since that rejection, a national network of concerned members and stewards has been busy building unity around the demand of “No Givebacks.” The first offer was loaded with major concessions.

Carhaulers at many terminals have also petitioned to change the negotiating committee, asking James Hoffa to add working carhaulers to the committee and to remove those officials who are too eager to give away what others fought decades to win.

Members continue to build solidarity to win a contract with no givebacks that protects the jobs of all affected members. The national contract covers 9,000 Teamsters, including drivers and owner-operators, heavy truck delivery (driveaway), mechanics, yard and office workers.
