The seven supplements were initially voted down and re-voted over the past several weeks, with ballots counted on Tuesday.

The five that were approved in the re-vote are Central Region Over-the-Road Freight, Southern Region Area Local Freight Forwarding Garage, Joint Council 40, Carolina Freight Council Over-the-Road, and New Jersey-New York Area LU-701.

The two supplements that were not approved are the Central Region Local Cartage and the Western States Office Employees—Part V.

The five-year national master portion of the ABF National Master Freight Agreement was approved in June, but will not take effect until the status of the two remaining supplements is resolved.

Earlier this month both sides agreed to a contact extenion through August 31.
