Dear editor,

I have just read your article on Internet usage for truckers (Truck News, February 2001).

You have written a very useful list of Web sites of interest to drivers and owner/operators. It includes a list of trucking associations who traditionally have lobbied for corporate causes as opposed to those of drivers or owner/operators.

I have one question. Why did you not include Web sites for any labor unions (like Teamsters Canada, for example) who have traditionally attempted to advance and better working conditions for drivers and owner/operators?

Your magazine is read by 90 per cent of the 300 drivers and O/Os here at Wolverine Freight Systems and all are teamster members.

I believe you could serve your readership much better by including the Web sites of trade unions that are eager to both represent and better the working conditions and lifestyle of all drivers and owner/operators.

Ed: Since we began compiling links for trucknews.com, we’ve always tried to search for those that direct people to the information we are most often asked about. This way the site is a useful tool for both our readers and our staff.

In truth, no one has ever asked us where to learn more about Teamsters Canada.

Sorry, but there is no anti-union conspiracy here.
