ABF, Teamsters Agree to Third Contract Extension
May 31, 2013
ABF Freight System and the Teamsters Union have reached another extension on the current labor agreement while they wait on rank and file members to vote on a new labor agreement between the two sides.
This extends the expiration of the current pact until June 30 while the ratification process on the next five-year contract is underway.
This is the third extension of the current contract. Teamsters local leaders unanimously endorsed the new agreement in a little after mid-May.
Ballots will be mailed to Teamster-represented employees on June 3, and the votes are expected to be counted on or around June 27.
