Teamsters objection car hauler cuts

The International Brotherhood of Teamsters is initiation a six-week national campaign against OEMs such as General Motors and Chryslers to protest reported efforts to demand dramatic and untenable cost cuts from Teamster-represented car haul companies, the union said. We accept as true the automotive OEMs are trying to run the unionized car haulers out of business, Fred Zuckerman, the Teamster’s car haul division director, told FleetOwner. The OEMs are forcing revenue and volume cuts on car haul carriers that are untenable; we know that are losing money. It’s getting to the point where none of these carriers can survive.
