    Default Shocking words from NP's Prez

    This morning, NP Prez Steve G and VP Bob N paid us a nice little visit. Steve started off the meeting by blaming Dollar Bill and the other VP's over at YRC for the company's demise. he also stated that if we don't vote for these latest concessions, we're done. he ran the whole coo, merger & dovetail by us again just in case we didn't know. everyone was fairly calm but active in asking questions. to his credit, Steve answered all of them. he even stated that he wouldn't be surprised if YRC would come back in 6 months asking for another giveback. however, the most telling answer he gave us had to do with the question of "where's all the money going" ? one of our guys told him that YRC has saved millions in not paying into the pension fund and charging us 15% a week of our pay. we all wanted a firm answer as to what YRC is doing with the money and Steve's response was "most of that money went to YRC's daily operation to keep the lights on and the gates open". basically, only SOME of that $$$ went to the bills. i found this to be shocking. alot of us were under the impression that the bills had to be paid, no questions asked. i guess i was wrong huh ? he said the workers and the concessions that were accepted were the reason why YRC is even around today. he also mentioned what was stated in the conference call pertaining to some new investors jumping on board as long as we, the workers, approve this beg back. any thoughts ?

    also in wednesday's meeting.....according to Steve G and Bob N, the coo is complete and on Tyson's & Hoffa's desk waiting for approval should a NO take place within NP. i flat out told him i refused to believe that due to the massive loss of business YRC would sustain if such a move were to occur. once NP's customers find out what's really going on they're gonna flee right to OUR, not YRC's, competitors. sh*t, i got the top 3 non-u's regionals that are ready to pounce on our frt. anyhow, he acknowledge what i said but didn't disagree with me. that said alot by itself. IMO, this whole merge/dovetail is bullcrap. he had some fools on the job believing this crap for 3 yrs. but not me. smart business says aint no f-ing way this happens but it's his job to sell this crap to us. him and Bob did a great job ( hear that YRC & Jr.) selling us the doom & gloom but sorry boys, u never once convinced me. im willing once again to call ur bluff. keep ur sh*tty @ss 25% because God knows u can't survive off of it.

    YRC will never get New Penns customers...If our customers wanted YRC they'd have them already..We're all in the same areas.....but either way I still think they need it to be a 'yes' vote for technical reasons...If they'd merge us the end would be even swifter than it has been. Because all the profits of the Northeast would be gone.

    I don't...Why would they give there jobs away..A paycut would do that...but there is none here..Not a direct pay cut anyways....I don't think New Penn will vote no...Ya don't work so hard to retain your job and stay at the top to just throw the company or your seniority away...and that is all a "no" would do IMO. I thinlk New Penn will vote YES..maybe alot of "no's" in Boston and Philly...but not the majority of the company...that's my prediction.
