Report: Puerto Rico Truckers Union, “Frente Amplio”, Refuse to Deliver Supplies – Use Hurricane Maria as Contract Leverage…

Puerto Rican born and raised, Colonel Michael A. Valle (”Torch”), Commander, 101st Air and Space Operations Group, and Director of the Joint Air Component Coordination Element, 1st Air Force, responsible for Hurricane Maria relief efforts, has the following comment:

…They have the generators, water, food, medicine, and fuel on the ground, yet the supplies are not moving across the island as quickly as they’re needed.

“It’s a lack of drivers for the transport trucks, the 18 wheelers. Supplies we have. Trucks we have. There are ships full of supplies, backed up in the ports, waiting to have a vehicle to unload into. However, only 20% of the truck drivers show up to work. These are private citizens in Puerto Rico, paid by companies that are contracted by the government”.. (link)

The ports are so full of relief supplies they can’t fit any more on the available space. CNBC ground report confirms Colonel Valle’s ground report.  WATCH:

.

The reason for truck drivers not showing up?  The Puerto Rican Truckers Union, Frente Amplio, is refusing to move the product.

The older man in this video (below) is the boss of a very sketchy (corrupt and violent) Puerto Rico trucker’s union called Fente Amplio. The Union Leader’s name is Victor Rodriguez. The reporter is pleading with Rodriquez to set aside his political grievances with the Puerto Rican governor. Mr. Rodriquez (toothless) angrily shouts NO, and states the truck drivers have a right to be mad and will punish Puerto Rico to prove their union’s strength.

Labor union head Victor Rodriquez is complaining about a law that the governor passed three weeks ago.

The reporter CONFIRMS that the truck drivers are refusing to work in order to get revenge on the governor.

Rodriguez says that the governor’s policies have impacted truckers, so now truckers will show the country THEIR OWN suffering.

The reporters says, “But all this stuff is in the past. In the present, it’s an emergency.”

Rodriguez guy says that the country can now experience what the truckers experience due to the governor’s policies.

Rodriquez says the truckers are not responsible for helping the country. That’s the governor’s job.

Three weeks earlier, nobody cared about the plight of the truckers, so now the truckers don’t care about the country.

This is all the governor’s fault, Rodriguez says. He passed a law, and now he has to live with it.

The governor didn’t understand the suffering of the working man, so now the truckers will show the country what suffering is.

Since the country doesn’t care about truckers, the truckers won’t help.

Here’s another report with three independent sources confirming the work stoppage:

WAPA Television confirmed that the strike is related to a recently passed law known as “The Senate Project 525 meant to Administratively Transform the Public Service Commission.” The law covers the recognition of UBER and other transportation methods but Rodriguez refuses to listen to reason or hear related facts.

The law is more commonly known as “The Senate’s 525 Project.” This video should dispel the rumors as to whether or not the supplies are sitting in the port because there isn’t fuel or because the drivers have been instructed NOT to drive.

There is no question that drivers were ordered NOT TO TOUCH THE TRUCKS as a retaliatory measure against the Governor of Puerto Rico.

The Mayor of San Juan, Carmen Yulin decided to keep her mouth shut about the strike and insult President Trump instead. It was a foolish and unfortunate choice considering Puerto Rico is out in the middle of the ocean. President Trump doubled down his efforts and was preparing for the tragedy “even before” the hurricanes hit Puerto Rico.

Being a builder by profession and knowing what construction can handle (or not) Pres. Trump took tremendous measures and made extraordinary attempts to get goods to Puerto Rico and succeeded.

The last thing he expected was that the local drivers would refuse to drive the trucks.

When the statement of a rumor came up, we confirmed with three (3) independent and directly involved sources within media on the island as well as with Victor Rodriguez whether the “strike rumor” was true or not. Rodriguez stated that he would not change his position. (read more)

Meanwhile, amid floods and lack of power the Mayor of San Juan, Carmen Yulin Cruz, finds a way to get propaganda T-Shirts to politicize the tragedy on very fake news CNN.

Go figure.

The rank and file Teamsters know that it is bull sh%t not to haul those relief supplies to those that need them. Emergency relief is not and never will be a political leverage bar. Emergency relief is not negational on any level and those that actually run the Teamsters should know this.

        Nearly every social media post from residents actually on the island are in stark contrast to the picture of Trump hating brown people and refusing to send help. The media is actually fortunate that most of the people can’t communicate so it gives them almost free reign to announce whatever they want and simply conjure up fictional stories out of thin air with little response from a helpless community. True pieces of garbage.

    This was my response to Dan Rather, after reading His response to President Trump tweet to governor of Puerto Rico.
    In reading the above article I can see the frustration President Trump has towards the
    Governor. My prayers are that these people get their act together to help their people, instead of waiting on a union disputed.

    Excuse me, Mr. Rather but your response to the tweets from President Trump having his opinion toward the mayor of San Juan, is his right of freedom of speech.
    President Trump said Puerto Rico is “totally unable” to handle the catastrophe on its own. President Trump said The United States is working hard and is “fully engaged in the disaster and the response and recovery effort. President Trump is trying within his powers of our government to get aide to Puerto Rico in a timely matter. President Trump does not have a money bag he has to go through Congress to request more aide. And as you have seen in past Congress does not act fast on anything!
    Even though aide has been hard to get to all the people in need,
    Thousands of Puerto Ricans have already received water and rationed food. United States has even sent military aide to help with the bottleneck of distribution of aide to the Puerto Rican People.
    By now, telecommunications are back for about 30 percent of the island, nearly half of the supermarkets have reopened at least for reduced hours and about 60 percent of the gas stations are pumping.
    But that is not fast enough for their governor although Puerto Rico is a territory of the United States they have faulted on loans to our country in the past, they do not pay federal income taxes. They do not pay payroll taxes, including Social Security, Medicare, and unemployment tax. Welfare in Puerto Rico is mainly funded by the United States. Yes they are Americans as you stated, but just like any other disasters it takes time and especially a island that infrastructure was in bad shape before the hurricane, So I asked you Mr Rathers why would anyone slams our President when The United States is helping. I don’t know why President Trump tweets, but we as Americans do not see the whole picture and it is not fast enough for the Puerto Rican people. I am not there and my prayers are with the Puerto Rican people. But I do feel they need to recognize it takes time, to rebuild, distributes supplies and equipment. And their government personnel that are able to help try to do their part in helping their island after this natural disaster.
    Also The United States has been hit in 2017 with several natural disasters from hurricanes, fires, floods and tornadoes. These people who live in these states pay taxes
    and they lost everything, even life’s we’re loss. If a private industry or citizen wants to donate money or time to help the Puerto Rican people that is honorable, and I praise them, but no matter how much we blame one another, it’s no help to these people. Hardest thing for anyone is to understand why bad things happen, it’s easy to blame, but that’s not helping these poor souls, so if you have The solution to expedite in a better way, I would rather read a article with a solutions than blaming!

    Trump will be there Tuesday and there may be a lot of “discussion” and “changes” made for immediate getting the truckers back on the road OR….

Truckers will BE back to delivering OR….. I think maybe Trump may then bring over many of our truck drivers to do the job since we have FEMA there, food/water/care packages there for the people. Once that is done, we need to cut the cord to the island and let them manage or not their own island and government.

Wow! our prayers to God will never end until America and PR and others accept Trump as a leader and President, and when he speaks, you had better listen and ditto through his appointees who are doing a fantastic job as well – in China, Maganomics, etc., etc. Everyone should realize America is a BIG business and we needed a successful business man to run it.

    There is no doubt the striking Puerto Rican union is scum. They deserve to be fired. (or Torched, perhaps?)

    I know you all do not believe it, but the CONUS Teamsters are organizing to go to PR to assist with drivers. Planes full of supplies and generators have already been sent. Teamsters do logistics and move stuff. It is what they do.
    Our local teamsters members – NOT union heads, the members – were some of the hardest workers working to elect Pres Trump.

    Joint Council 16 is mobilizing now to go to PR and drive, to move stuff. JC16 has 2000 members in Puerto Rico.
    Call 202-624-6911 Monday morning to volunteer. You need a CDL and a good driving record.

    If any of our locals guys go, the PR union members may be in for a world of hurt. Our guys, many of whom are vets, do have their honor.

    These Puerto Rican Union thugs will come to regret their refusal to truck emergency food and water to their own people.

    How ugly can a human being get that they demand a higher wage before they’ll save the lives of their own people?

    The mayor of San Juan is bitching about fema and she is the ONLY mayor of 78 towns that has not cooperated or shown up to coordination meetings…not one. Instead she is in tv trying to win 15 min of fame when she is the one who is not doing her job.

    This is so crazy and so much B.S. It turns out the the Mayor of this island is at fault . Why is she say its US fault. (trump)? Open your eyes American. Check out who is really behind all this hate News. It all comes down to the party who has to make excuses for losing the election. Blame everything on the other party. So happy that we can see who is who now. Its about time for the losing party to Grow up and put on big boy pants and stop the blame game.
