ABF Contract Ratified by 52%

Updated July 3, 2013: The ABF master contract has been ratified by a vote of 3,210 yes to 2,965 no. Most of the big terminals, such as Atlanta, Chicago, and Dayton rejected the contract heavily; except for Carlisle, Pa. Many smaller terminals and many in the West voted yes, to provide the majority.

Some supplemental agreements were rejected, so the contract cannot be implemented until those are settled and re-voted.

Some 7,753 ballots were mailed out, so it was about an 80% turnout.

We will post more details, including the local-by-local vote count and reports on the supplemental votes, as they become available.
