Letter from Clare Rose
We are finally settling down after the strike and I wanted to take a moment to thank you and your family for all of your help and support. We literally would have not been able to get through the strike without you. As Sean [Rose] said many times, "You saved our company". I will never forget our first conversation with Tom. He told us that he has us covered, at the time I wasn't too sure. I was wrong to doubt. You were true to your word and then some!
One of the best things about working with STS is your flexibility. Every request we made, no matter how out of the ordinary, you were willing to accommodate. Your brothers are a pleasure to work with and were always ready to help in whatever way they could. They are a real asset to your company.
I truly hope we never go on strike again... but if we do... STS will be the first call we make.
Letter from Southern Eagle
I apologize for not having corresponded with you sooner as I had promised. I want you to know your performance during the work stoppage here at Southern Eagle was outstanding. It was apparent that you had an excellent relationship with your personnel and if there was a problem, you took immediate action to resolve it. You can count on being called on again to assist us in the event we are in a similar situation.
The sight of fifty routes crossing the picket line that first day must have had some impact because the union ultimately accepted our final offer after some thirteen weeks of watching their people cross the line to return to work. Attitudes appear to be significantly improved, a number of trouble makers have gone elsewhere, and we are moving forward in a positive fashion... thanks to you.
Letter from Banko Distributing
It was a pleasure working with you and your staff during our recent contract negotiations.
I was confident that you replacement drivers and warehouse staff were ready to do the job if needed. Fortunately for us, we were able to settle the contract without disruption of our work schedule.
We had no reservations about the ability of your staff to man our operation should that have come to pass. That confidence strengthened our ability to negotiate without fear of a shutdown.
I would recommend you and your company to any colleagues facing a similar labor situation.
Letter from Anheuser-Busch
I am writing this letter to thank you and your management team for your assistance with our contingency planning and preparation for a labor dispute and possible work stoppage this past month. Your knowledge, experience and partnership met our business needs and were extremely helpful in assisting us through this difficult period. Through the efforts of many people including the staff of STS Inc. we were able to negotiate an agreement and avoid a labor strike in the eleventh hour.
Based on this most recent experience, as well as your prior service to our company, I would highly recommend STS Inc. services to anyone that finds themselves in a similar labor situation. I will be contacting you in the near future for initial discussions regarding two additional locations with upcoming labor negotiations.
Once again, thanks for your partnership and professionalism.
Letter from Wakefern Food
I am writing this letter to let you know how extremely pleased we at Wakefern Food Corporation are with the services STS has provided for us. From the moment that we first spoke, it was apparent that you were interested in our business and concerned about how best you could service our needs.
We as a company were faced with the very difficult task of closing our facility in Wallkill, NY and opening our new facility in Breinigsville, PA. The movement of this product from one warehouse to our other warehouse was accomplished with little or no disruption to our customers.
STS was able to supply us with a workforce of drivers that were both very productive and flexible. No matter what the request was, you and your staff reacted to our needs.
I would like to thank you and your staff for providing Wakeforn Food Corporation and its members with the services needed to accomplish the very difficult task.
