ABF Supplement Ballots are In the Mail

Although the national portion of the ABF National Master Freight Agreement was approved in the June referendum, seven of the 27 local/area supplements were rejected by members. After polling to determine the pivotal issues for these supplements the Teamsters ABF National Negotiating Committee and representatives of ABF met and hammered out revisions to the supplements to address those issues. Ballots on the revised supplements are now in the mail to all members under these seven supplements. In order to be counted, ballots need to be returned to the Lanham, Maryland post office by 10am on Wednesday, August 28.

If you do not receive your ballot by Wednesday, August 14, please contact your local union so that a duplicate ballot can be mailed to you. We will accept duplicate ballot requests until noon on Thursday, August 22.
