    Been trying to figure out why ATT has hired a company that specializes in human procurement to call all the laid off drivers from Dublin, Macungie, Springfield and Garland and ask if they have passports and would they relocate to another terminal.

    The current rumor mill is grinding out that Navistar is returning to ATT....just a rumor and a dime a dozen. I want to see everything become Active/Teamster....:biggrin_255:

    Ive heard that also, good friend of mine, an ex Dublin driver got the call from a company in Milwaukee called Myco USA asking those questions.

    Iron Tiger was pretty confident that they had a long term agreement with International. I mean,think about it. AutoTruck lost the contract for poor performance,do you think International would go back to AutoTruck after only 6 months? Doubt it. Plus,TruckMovers/IronTiger have taken over those other Auto Truck contracts,it seems to me,that AutoTruck is hanging by a thread and IT/TM is charging Full Steam Ahead!

    Since IT/TM is just another 'division' of JHT Holdings then its called 'double breasting'. Supposed to be an illegal practice but the feds ruled against the IBT in 2003 concerning this. The IAM just rolls over for Troha and Co.:biggrin_25510:

    It wasn't necessarily poor performance, ITL offered tracking by phone of the trucks that ATT didn't offer and now ATT has those capabilities. ITL underbid ATT and ATT just agreed to a pay cut.

    The GPS 'capabilities' for customer's use is a canard. Look for your logs to be matched against gps records.

    It's been an eventful week. The gay royalty coterie (special operations) showed up at Laredo enmasse and the locals along with assorted fools were beside themselves. This is the only time you'll see management and one particular dispatcher wait on a group of 'drivers'(?) hand and foot. Their 'presence' isn't what it once was but still a formidable group and typically available for management's beckon call.

    ATT has retained a core group of experienced drivers/technicians who aren't easily intimidated by the juvenile mechanizations of those who are easily identified by their 'arrested development'. Still a fascinating experience....:biggrin_2556:

    ITL was going to our previous pay level this coming October ($70 and .55 for a 4way), the one ATT is supposed to return to in 2013. It's looking like JHT will shut down its ITL canard and bring everything back under the ATT umbrella. ITL served its purpose and the IAM fell for it.:biggrin_25510:

    I agree with that, with CA2010 they are pushing that at every company. I wouldn't care because 90 percent of the time I ran legally, I'll just have to make it 100 percent. I agree IAM sold out, but they have ever since I started working for ATT>

    There is also ways to get around the phones, there are ways to block the signals, wonder what there response to someone doing that will be.

    Thinking we'll eventually get the GPS phones. Heck, my Nokia phone can be a GPS phone if the correct 'package' is enabled and subscribed to for the extra fee.

    At this moment, we have a GPS 'device' about the size of a small iPod that uses the same identical chargers as my Nokia. It has two lamps; one for 'low battery' and one for 'signal' - that's it.

    Regarding the impromptu 'contract' forced upon us in recent weeks; my just completed trip's gross is 3.5% less than I would have made just two weeks back, not to mention not getting paid for my 'detention time' at a foreign terminal. Still don't know If we lost our flight detention pay, dealer paperwork/ inspection pay, etc.

    I didn't vote for this as I was inbound to the terminal during the 'vote'. I didn't vote for the last contract either as I was unaware of a 'second vote' until after the fact. Union Steward says 'it's our fault for letting Anderson do this....':biggrin_2556:
