ABF Teamsters Say No in Most Locals

Updated May 26, 2010: ABF Teamsters have rejected the proposed 15% wage cut, by a vote of 3,764 to 2,936. The local-by-local vote count is available here.

Most large locals decisively voted No, including Chicago Locals 710 and 705, Atlanta Local 728, Carlisle Pennsylvania Local 776, Little Rock Local 878, Kansas City Local 41, Los Angeles Local 63, and even Dallas Local 745, the home base of Freight Director Tyson Johnson. Dayton Local 957 members voted Yes by a narrow margin.

ABF Teamsters will remain under the NMFA contract wage, as we await the next move by the company and the International Union.

Thanks to the rank and file observers for assuring a democratic and fair vote.
