Josh and His Daughter Need Our Help

                                                                               

In the early morning of October 12th 2016 Joshua Alexander, a fully licensed AZ truck driver working for Moe’s Transport out of Windsor Ontario, was driving his tractor trailer along Michigan’s Interstate 94 East, making his way back home to Canada after another run South of the border. Josh has done this run on a number of occasions without issue and as far as he knew this time was no different. Being a safe and conscientious  driver Josh pulled over and shut his rig down at mile marker 66 to get some rest prior to arriving at the border. After approximately 30 minutes Josh was awakened by the lights of a State Police car behind his truck and the officer at his side door. He was questioned about a fatal motorcycle accident that had taken place approximately 6 miles behind where he was asleep and then asked to follow the Sherriff to the nearest truck stop where he was questioned for many hours during which he had his vehicle inspected for signs of an accident. It was during this inspection that the police found what looked to be blood and scratches on the tractor, regardless the vehicle was not seized and Josh and his tractor and trailer where set free to return to Canada pending the outcome of the investigation, which later revealed that the blood was animal and not human and that the paint in the scratches did not match that of the paint at the accident scene...click here to find out more and how you can help Josh and his daughter.

Testimonial

“They have demonstrated the dedication and leadership that
our Local requires. They have always provided sound counsel, support, and frank
discussion on matters involving the members, contract negotiations and our
Local.“ 

- Bruce Tillapaugh –Shop Steward. Island Farms, Victoria

“I look after a lot of members in a very big plant. For years I had to fight for them by myself with no help at all from any of the Union’s representatives or Officers. This changed completely once Bobby, Bob and Paul were in office. Now I have access to my reps 24 hours a day, 7 days a week!  They’re always there to back me up.” 

- Darrell Lawres – Chief Shop Steward. Saputo, Sperling

"I was employed for many years at a Teamster company that was shut down due to the economy. Because of my age, I was worried about starting over. Bobby, Bob and Paul not only negotiated a much better severance package than was in the contract, but they also went the extra mile and got me on at one of their other companies with an even better contract.They continued to help me even though it wasn't their job to."
