Pros

Good money & benefits until the layoff hit.

Cons

Layoff on call status for dock work is terrible.
Yellow Freight & Roadway Express Merged together and then caused thousands of teamsters to be laid off.

Advice to Management

Step #1...If you want to make money, you have to spend money!
Make a commercial for television viewers to see what your company is all about.
The reason for company failure,is the management running the company from the supervisors all the way up to the big shots that are making in excess of $110.000.00 a year.
If they were to take a 15% cut in their pay like all the teamsters did for the company,then recall all the people back off from layoff.
Step#2... See step #1

    Pros

    I can't think of a single pro. It was nice to have experience in a unionized setting on my resume.

    Cons

    Long hours, management at my terminal didn't support eachother, the terminal manager was overworked and a dick , poor wages, difficult to get time off, and you're stuck dealing with whiny Teamster's that have poor work ethics.

    Advice to Management

    Fire yourselves
