The Teamsters Union said it had forced Allied Holdings to return pay to workers that the union said had been unlawfully cut up to a week before a bankruptcy judge’s May 2 order allowing Allied to cut pay going forward. According to the Teamsters, the cuts occurred as early as April 24.

Fred Zuckerman, co-chair of the Teamsters National Automobile Transporters Industry Negotiating Committee, said that the union declared in negotiations with the company on May 11 that the union would strike unless its members were paid for their time worked. “We will continue to monitor the bankruptcy proceedings and fight for our members’ interests,” said Zuckerman, who also serves as the union’s Carhaul Division director.
