It's simple economics. Fuel prices go up so, shipping charges go up. Unfortunately for Allied, they have contracts to their drivers and to their customers. If there is a provision in the contracts where they can alter the price billed to reflect the change in their costs then the customer just has to shell out more money. If there is no provision for that then Allied should have negotiated a better contract instead of pissing off their customers and in turn, their customers. I mean honestly, after hearing about this incident, who the hell would use Allied for future business? GM just needs to pay them what they want just for the vehicles they currently are holding hostage and then tell them to go **** themselves.

It doesn't, and you may be right. But it was not the union that parked the trucks with GM and Chrysler's property on them, that was Allied's decision. I think that's what The_Blur was getting to...

Bad behavior by Allied and the union. I agree totally.

GOOD NEWS: My Dealer is NOT LYING to me.

THE BAD NEWS: The Manual SS they order that I'm waiting to Test Drive may be held Hostage.

I will know for sure in about 2 weeks or less. His Dealership Hire their own Trucking Company to go an get thier Vehicles from a Depot about a 200 miles away around trip. IF the manual SS is not at the Depot then it is a Hostage.

Once I test drive the Manual SS. I'm pulling the Trigger and ordering what I want. I'm not going for the whole, "Oh there is a dealer XX amount of miles away that has what you want. We can get it here by ______."

I do want to point out that taking a pay cut is something a lot of us have done, but we do that by choice for the welfare of our future at the same place. It is a choice. The company tried to force it on everyone, and that just isn't right. This is just my opinion, and you guys are more than welcome to disagree.

The company demand for a 20% pay cut is greedy (I had to take a 6% pay cut to keep my job), but the union refusal was also greedy. How much are those union drivers making now with the trucks parked?

The same can be asked of the company. How much is the company making with the clients finding other options? Those drivers can get jobs elsewhere. As tough as this economy is, there is a real need for transportation. It isn't what it used to be, but there are jobs in that field. Investors lose their money when they don't come to terms with their employees.

My Camaro was being held with the others. This morning I was updated that it had been loaded on a truck for shipping to my dealer. I assume they must have worked something out and maybe that is why mine is on the way to the dealer.

I hope the same happens for every future Camaro owner whose car has been being held captive by Allied.

Lets see, Allied goes bankrupt. The union drivers loose their jobs but did not have to give any consessions. Non-union drivers haul cars and get more jobs. Looks like every one wins.

Wonder if Allied would have gave GM and Chrysler money back if fuel prices would have dropped?

Some (the ones who made that wacky decision) at Allied, need to be charged with grand theft auto.

My car is being held hostage in Dearborn, MI. I'm just sick about it! It's been there "On Hold" since 3/14/11. Nobody can give me any answers. My fear is that these cars could be stuck in legal red tape for months.

They are using different carriers now. It doesn't help the cars that are in Allied posession and not being released.
