    I have been working at Oak Harbor Freight Lines

    Pros

    They are union. Teamsters, even the office staff. Union benefits are great and support working families, improving the quality of life.

    Cons

    Ownership greed and lack of caring for long time employees. Too many chiefs not enough indians. Most management are new to the company and don't truly have long time employees respect.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You can't put a price on loyalty and hardworking employees, no matter what the hourly wage says. Those are priceless. Stop trying to micromanage employees. We are all trained at our jobs and are capable of being productive and contributing to the success of Oak Harbor without much input from management.

    I have been working at Oak Harbor Freight Lines

    Pros

    Great pay, and benefits. company cares. In spite of all the mud slinging from the union if you look outside oak Harbor where else are you going to get 21.00 per hour with full family medical and a company paid for pension. I make enough to allow my wife to stay home and raise our kids and we still have enough to have fun.

    Cons

    part of the company are represented by teamsters union. the drivers don't get it that the teamsters fight with the company is all about maintaining thier trust funds, it really has nothing to do with what is good for employees. if the union could keep their trust funds in the contract by throwing the employees under the bus they would. fortunately the owners care more for their employees than the union does.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get the best deal you can in the negotiations. educate the employees on what the union representatives are really like.
