P.T. Scabbing At FedEx Freight
All P.T carriers are scabbing your work, what are you going to do about it? Sit there and surrender your Rights and Power, or decide to built your committee and arrange meetings at your nearest Teamster local. All I know we the P & D drivers pick up freight for you linehaul drivers to work and not for those Scab interline carriers.Don't give Corporate the glory of them screwing you guys out of work. Corporate see that no one is going to do anything about it, so why not fight with us 35% of employees for Unionism. Don't let management like Santiago Rios Jr state that it is cheaper to hired outside carriers than union drivers. If I was there that day I would push those other drivers who heard Jr.Rios to file a NRLB charge against FedEx Corporate for allowing Jr. Rios to act as agent for the company and admitting that cutting linehaul work to P.T SCABS is becase of Union activities. Now that is a Federal violation of the NRLA, is an act of retalation of the company because of our union activities.
