Carhaul campaign makes progress at GM
Posted On: Dec 21, 2009

Cross-posted from - Discussions between Teamster leaders and executives with GM have resulted in a commitment from the automaker to protect existing Teamster jobs, and further talks are planned to discuss future carhaul work at GM that union members have traditionally done.

“This is a significant development, but more discussions need to occur to make sure more work at GM is done by Teamster carhaulers,” said Fred Zuckerman, Director of the Teamsters Carhaul Division.

Based on the progress at GM, the Teamsters are suspending campaign activities at GM until further notice with the expectation that a final settlement will be reached in the immediate future.

The union’s campaign to save Teamster jobs in the carhaul industry continues at Chrysler and Toyota. Chrysler has not shown the same willingness as GM and Ford to discuss saving Teamster jobs with the union, and Toyota is now making threats to move Teamster carhaul work to non-union carriers.

Zuckerman praised the United Auto Workers (UAW) for its help and support on this issue with the Big Three automakers.

“I also want to thank all the Teamster carhaulers and Teamster members who have helped this campaign. We are making progress but our work is not done,” Zuckerman said.
