Former CF Teamsters Finally Get Paid

June 28, 2007: Former Consolidated Freightways Teamsters are receiving checks this week in partial payment of moneys owed to them for the past five years. CF Teamsters who do not receive checks soon should contact their local union.

The first check received covered most of the WARN Act settlement of $2150 for the abrupt closure, in the "Labor Day Massacre" of 2002, when over 10,000 Teamsters lost their jobs. The second check should cover a percentage of money owed for vacation, sick pay, holidays, etc.

Teamsters have until July 23 to object if they feel they were shorted in calculating their vacation or other pay owed.
