Teamsters bringing jobs back


It won't be politicians bringing jobs back from overseas. It's  working people organizing unions at our workplace and fighting back against the corporate greed that sends decent, good paying jobs overseas. Just to get their millions in bonuses and golden parachutes when they retire or when they bankrupt a company. Unless we organize, corporate crooks will continue to get away with the looting of America. They have bought politicians to weaken or pass laws that will allow them to go around labor laws. They hire labor consultants, better known as union busters, to lie or misinform employees about unions. Their main goal is to divide us while making us believe we don't need union representaion. They tell you to pull yourself up by your bootstraps. They've been successful for almost 40 years by using the divide and conquer mentality. It's our time to stand together and fight back. This is a good example of how unions fight and stand up for working class America.

MOU Cases 06-15-C16; 06-15-W5; 06-15-W9. These cases involve YRC’s office clerical operations and a challenge raised by various Locals to the offshoring of certain billing work to India and the Philippines. According to the Company, Teamster represented employees have historically performed less than 50% of the work in question. Several years ago, the Company closed all of its non-union clerical operations in the U.S. Much of that non-union work was sent overseas. The Company claims that it is not in violation of the MOU because the Union today represents a much higher percentage of the work in question than it ever had previously. Nevertheless, as a result of discussions resulting from the deadlocked case, the Company is now increasing the number of red-circle office positions in Local 63 and the employees will have access to the national queue of work. Additionally, the Company will transfer work from India and the Philippines in order to provide sufficient and appropriate work opportunities. Furthermore, the Company will meet with Locals 20 and 696 about increasing the number of full-time office positions in those Locals. The MOU Subcommittee, has therefore undeadlocked the case and re-assumed jurisdiction for further review and consideration as appropriate.

This is what I'm saying about drawing labor lines along party lines. Big companies buy politicians all the time. They only care about themselves and their profit. Put aside your differences and vote union!

The rich and the corporate elite have convinced the working man that good health benefits and good wages are socialism. But the rich getting tax breaks and government subsidies are not for rich corporation is not socialism these low life rich want you the working man to work hard for every penny u earn and if you get any help along the way they scream oh sham on u you can't pull yourself by your boot straps, while they are living and stealing from the government and the people of this country.

I agree 100% but still don't understand why 33%of unions members still vote republican and then complain about union organizations not being strong enough like they used to be,they probably have a short memory remembering republicans legislators passing anti workers laws like "right to work" which is meant to destroy unions not to have a right to have a dencent paying job with decent benefits.we need to put politics aside but we have to be vigilant on those who are trying to undermine our rights to organize and vote for union representation at our workplace.

Our only chance to stand up and fight against corporate greed and unfair labor practices from employees is to vote yes for union representation. Corporations have lawyers and politicians representing them.
