So what does going to Canada have to do with taking jobs from the big companies? It's the same thing. They're going from ports in Mexico to a DC.
If anything it would HELP the big companies. We have dozens of drivers that can't go into Canada as it is right now just in my company alone.
ETA: I'm still looking for the specific law that prevents a trucker strike, however, one of the catches in us striking is that we're not employed by
the company itself. We're employed by a subcompany that is hired by the company. If we go on strike then the company we're contracted by can claim
breach of contract on our part and fire us all, and there's nothing we can do about it.
EATA: I don't have the exact law, but since we're technically in a time of war, and truck drivers are required to transport vital military supplies
we are not allowed to strike. If we weren't at war then we could have a nationwide strike, but since we ARE at war, if they wanted to they could
legally make a claim of treason and throw all the striking truck drivers in jail for it.
