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."

Historic Victories Within Reach This Week

TDU members have organized for decades to completely end the Two-Thirds Rule and increase rank-and-file power in contract negotiations. This week, those changes will become a reality, thanks to united action by the O’Brien-Zuckerman Teamsters United coalition.  

The Constitution Committee voted today to recommend that the IBT Convention vote to eliminate the Two-Thirds Rule, require rank-and-file members on all contract negotiating committees, and ban the International from imposing contract supplements and riders that are rejected by the members.

The Showdown over Teamster Rights

The IBT Convention starts this coming Tuesday, June 22, and the fight is on to win major changes to our Teamster Constitution.
