Carhaul Locals to Hold Meetings

The IBT Carhaul Division has instructed all carhaul locals to hold meetings to ask members why they rejected the concessionary first offer.

These guys are so out of touch, they need to be told the obvious: Teamsters are tired of concessions and want to protect their jobs and make reasonable gains in this boom year of auto sales.

A number of carhaulers are planning to make this demand on the union:  add representation to the bargaining committee for the 87% of the members who voted against concessions! The entire committee presently represents only the 13% who voted Yes. 

Adding John Thyer, Fred Zuckerman and Bill Frisky to the committee would give some voice for 87% of the affected members. And it would bring the largest carhaul local – Local 89 – onto the committee as well, as well as three leaders who have actually worked in the craft and know the industry.

This simple move would no doubt speed up the process of getting a satisfactory contract. Hoffa and Kevin Moore would still control the great majority of the committee – so what are they afraid of?!

This should be the #1 proposal of all carhaulers who want to get a contract worthy of the term “Teamsters Union” on its cover.
