Carhaul: How About a Two-Year Contract?

February 21, 2008: Bargaining begins for the national carhaul contract in March, and the concessions at Allied could spread. Carhaul Teamsters are talking about what we can do to protect our master contract and our Teamster standards. In late January Teamster carhaul officials met to screen contract proposals and formulate the demands for the national contract that expires May 30.

Carhaul: Can a Two-Year Contract Help Rebuild Teamster Power?

Concessions for PTS Carhaulers Approved

December 19, 2007: The International Union pushed through 17.5% wage concessions for 1500 PTS Teamsters, by giving none of them the right to vote on the pay cut. Allied Teamsters voted by a 3-1 margin to approve the concessions, in balloting tallied today.
