The Teamsters National Automobile Transporters Industry Negotiating Committee (TNATINC) and the Carhaul Employer Group (NATLD) are negotiating for a third straight day today in Detroit.
Following the membership vote not to ratify a new National Agreement and Central/Southern Supplement in September 2016, the carhaul employers bargaining group asked the Teamsters National Automobile Transporters Industry Negotiating Committee (TNATINC) to return to the bargaining table. Contract negotiations began today in Detroit with the Employers group.
The Teamsters National Automobile Transporters Industry Negotiating Committee (TNATINC) will meet in the near future to discuss options after members voted to not ratify a national agreement and one of the three supplements.
Teamster carhaul members have rejected a national contract and the Central-Southern Supplement, but have approved the Eastern and Western supplements.
Since 2014, the Carhaul Division has pressed NMATA carriers for detailed information under the terms of the Work Preservation Agreement (WPA) about how they conduct business with logistics companies. The attached flier explains in detail what the Division has discovered about these companies and the importance of new protections in these Agreements.

Leaders of carhaul local unions from across the country overwhelmingly endorsed a new tentative National Master Automobile Transporters Agreement (NMATA) today in Detroit, paving the way for members to vote on the contract later this month.
A conference call is scheduled at 8 p.m. Central time/9 p.m. Eastern Thursday, August 4 during which time Teamster leaders will discuss the tentative national carhaul agreement.
