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.
