Here's a sample of the comments we copied on the Teamsters Facebook page. They're unsolicited. And we see them all the time:

The Teamster pay scale, keeps the non union pay scale competative. With out it, how much do you think you'd be making? The contract give's everything in Black & White, respect and rights, I worked for non union carriers, where I had no rights. If you're written up for something or fired, who do you appeal to, the company that wrote or fired you?Casey Schwanz
