Carhaulers Plan Next Steps after Rejection

August 14, 2008: After voting by a 60-40 margin to reject a concessionary agreement offered by the International Union, carhaulers are planning to reverse the concessions and win a better contract.

It was the first national trucking contract rejection since the 1980s, when Teamster president Jackie Presser was handing out concessions. This deal was so bad, even Presser would have been embarrassed to try to sell it.

It was an important turning point, but only a first step. Now comes the challenge of winning a good contract.
