ABF ships nonunion FedEx to Teamster Members

January 28, 2013: ABF ships nonunion FedEx to Teamster Members

"ABF Teamsters win company points for safe driving, etc. They can redeem these points for ABF logo shirts, jackets, toy trucks, etc. Sad to say, ABF management uses nonunion FedEx instead of Teamsters at UPS to deliver. They could also use their own ABF inter-terminal mail-bag system they regularly use to send company documents and small parcels to terminals. It would be a way of keeping the money in house rather than giving it to the nonunion competition."
