>From the article:
"'They're definitely independent contractors,' said Joseph Nievez, pres of
the Qwikway Trucking Company and past president of CA Trucking Assoc. 'The
one huge defining factor in my eyes i they have made an investment in a
piece of equipment and they're not punching a clock. Someone who invests
10,15,20 thousand in a pice of equipment, he's in business for himself.'"

The reporter Greenhouse also notes: "But the catch could be the shipping
lines might hesitate to contact with the unionized trucking companies [to
which the Teamsters hope to attract the 'independent' contractors-rb] to
transport their loads, espeically since the unionized companies might
charge more because they would pay their drivers more."
