I used to work with this guy from ANH and I used to see management look down on this driver because he supported the Union. Guys like Mike C. who always used to ask about Tito's Union invlovement.

For those who aren't aware of the entire history of how this Anaheim driver has stood up for his rights, you might want to click this link, and check out the comments on the July 27th post. Especially helpful is the DOT regulations that protect fatigued or sick drivers:

"Our people make the difference"or something close to that quote.
Well-and this HAS NOT been verified-why is it that the linedrivers from the East system,that is being infused into the West,generally have a MAXIMUM of TEN YEARS seniority.
They burn them out and encourage them to quit.
Here in the West with 20 years you still feel like a newbie.25,30 and 35 years not being uncommon.
Well,for you,"it will all work out" folks it will but you WILL NOT be a part of it.
For any management personnel disputing this,please prove me wrong WITH VERIFIBLE FACTS.
Then too remember this,if there's fewer of us to manage/control,do they really need YOU.

DON"T SHOOT the MESSENGER

I have known Tito for quite some time now and Tito has alway's been a hard worker. The problem Tito had with CLC was favortism, plus David CastaƱeda black balled Tito because of his union activities. Other service centers tagged him also. They would give him short runs or just keep him on the dock most of the night. He was set up on a wrongful termination just because he believed in unionizing FedEx. Tito wasn't the only driver being short changed.Hopefully Tito gets the justice he deserves and wins his case. Because there is no wrong side for being part of the labor movement.

Fontana mangement must have known about Tito's pro union position because I knew he worried about coming here. Roger would never give him any long runs. Tito would take his lunchs and breaks on time and still Roger would bypass him and give he's kiss a...s the better runs.

tito your not alone, roger boring has his prefer dockworkers. if you got cigarettes you are on his side. because he can't afford his own. here in fontana pm dock they have their prefer dockwoker, they seperate light trailers and the heavy loads. the prefer kiss ass dockerworkers get the heavy loads just to make their performance look good. the not prefer dockworkers get the light trailers and our performance goes down and we get a special attention award, a written notice for not performing to their standard. we need a union here at fedex.

Tito use to get harassed by manager for wearing Tshirt with "wrong" color. But Tito was combo driver, combo drivers never meet customers, who cares what Tshirt combo drivers wear?

Mike Caceres discriminated against Tito for supporting the Union. he used to ask all employees in FLC and drivers too about Tito's Union involvement. That is against the law.

A reply to Anonymous'comments about Joe getting Tito a job,etc.
Firstly,If you don't have the spine to identify yourself your comments carry no weight with me.
Secondly,I'm sure Joe would get Tito a job if he could.Joe does what he can.He even stands up for the nameless,and faceless like you.
I'm sure that once we are organized you'll be WITH US ALL THE WAY.That's ok,only about 33% of the citizenry FOUGHT TO FORM THIS COUNTRY.
Then too,I don't hear Tito complaining about Joe,or his situation;but he is doing something about it.ARE YOU?
Thirdly,The number of carriers hiring-union or nonunion-are few.In case you haven't heard we're experiencing the worst economic situation in this country's history.Brought about no less by the management you appear to defend.By the way,were you invited to the two AIG bailout parties that we paid for to rescue BAD MANAGEMENT.Doubt it.Were you in on the insider trading deal that FEDEX MANAGEMENT took advantage of in July?Doubt it.
Geez,you're probably not in the loop.
Fourthly,the number of union carriers in California is not the question.The strength of the TEAMSTERS is the deciding factor.If you read the BIBLE I think the story of David and Goliath would be appropriate.
Why do you think management fills us with anti-union propaganda?They're afraid.Of what?Not being able to buy that bigger______(you fill in the blanks).Then too they'll have to compensate you fairly with ADEQUATE wages and benefits.
Lastly,I'm sure you feel you are well intentioned and were motivated enough to make a comment.However,your concern/anger is perhaps misdirected.Fortify yourself with information about what is happening.
Me,I'm a lifelong consrevative,but when I saw what was happening to us-and the rest of the country-I couldn't support the management that is driving us to ruin.They personify GREED while feeding on financial gluttony.
Then too,if you are management your arguments are weak.
Enjoy your future-you might deserve it.
