Strike Votes at ABF

Some Teamster locals are holding strike authorization votes for ABF Teamsters to put pressure on the company to respond to union demands to reverse concessions and protect Teamster jobs.

Strike votes are being held in a number of locals, including Dayton, Harrisburg, Columbus, Kansas City, Louisville, and Chicago Local 710. 

ABF has stonewalled in contract negotiations. They’ve given the union just one page of proposals, a laundry list of concessions.

Members have a chance to get the company’s attention by voting to authorize a strike.

Management needs to understand that ABF Teamsters are done with concessions.

ABF needs to reverse the givebacks from the last contract, increase wages, protect benefits, and protect Teamster jobs by ending subcontracting and the abuse of Purchased Transportation.

Send management a message by voting Yes if your local is holding a strike vote.

Contract negotiations resume on February 12.

    Pay the rate or lock the gate. Those who forget the past are condemned to repeat it. You voted to give them less of your money. If you vote to do it again, then you and your family will have to live with less than the previous 5 years. And won’t that be fun. von.
