    Default New Penn "Change of operations"

    New Penn has requested additional employees for a new service at the velocity centers.

    New Penn requests additional headcount
    New Penn Motor Express, the Northeast regional U.S. unit of less-than-truckload (LTL) carrier YRC Worldwide Inc. (NASDAQ: YRCW), has notified the Teamsters union that it plans to add utility employee positions for “improved service and growth.”
    The proposed “change of operations” would add 86 utility employees traveling within a 175-mile proximity of “three newly established regional velocity centers” in Newburgh, New York, and Scranton and Camp Hill, Pennsylvania, New Penn stated in the notice on Friday.
    The change is expected to eliminate approximately 50 layover trips, which would allow more employees to return home nightly. The 86 positions would originate from 12 terminals within the new regional velocity centers, New Penn stated. It does not reduce the number of local cartage employees at these centers, it said. The change would not alter any terminal’s assigned pickup and delivery area, according to New Penn.
    New Penn has requested a hearing date of Feb. 25, with implementation no sooner than March 22.

    The facts are not out and confirmed yet....but "adding employees".......is not what this does of course.
    It looks like road drivers become utility drivers....
    They don't have enough freight for everybody now. They've only had a couple layoffs involving a few guys for a few weeks in the last 15 year's where I'm at....and freight now seems like it's past the point of layoff time. It is slow.
    YRC should be ashamed of themselves....but they have no shame.
    All the freight and hard working people they had here and it's becoming a ghost town with freight.
    They have no choice but do something. It is dry. It's slow everywhere for all carriers but they are just idiots.
    When somebody says educated businessmen know what they are doing.......that is a joke.
    They know how to land themselves $500,000 jobs for themself and that's about it.
    I have no faith in education or business.
    If drivers started running the place 12 years ago we would have more freight than we would know what to do with and it would've gotten picked up and delivered on time and in one piece.......YRC....foolish board members who pay way too much to people who don't improve anything.
    $100, 000/ year would have been way overpaying anybody in Overland Park for the last 12 year's.

    Newburgh moved into the YRC terminal in Mayrook. Evidently they have many doors they can use. But when I worked the dock it was in the original terminal. The bumpers on the doors kept a lot of the wind out and that terminal can get very cold on a windy winter day. YRC doesn't have bumpers to my knowledge unless they installed them recently. I wouldn't want to work the dock there. And after reading the change of it goes through is going to cost jobs in the long run. They are adding jobs to terminals that cannot hire regular drivers. I see this as a total flop for YRC and hopefully not the end of NewPenn.

    An already tried and failed idea from YRC. They'll never learn.

    One thing they are good at is wasting time.
    They have come up with so many ways to waste more and more time than Teamsters.
    I still think the problem is the 53's....racking.
    It's just time consuming. Nothing fast about it.
    So now we take road drivers, most of the guys who stick it out and switch to utility have not been on the dock since we started using the 53's. Not gonna make time with that move. And if they are used to a certain pay/week.....do we really think they will work harder and faster for less?
    Most probably they will work the speed it takes to maintain their pay or make more.
    So. We have guys who will make a dollar more/hour than city drivers...replacing a lower rate dock worker?
    And this will make money?
    It might rub some guys noses in it by having road guys bump into the city and knock 8 hour bid guys back to 9 hour bids...and knocking morning drivers back to afternoons and night shifts on the dock.
    They sure know how to make people love their jobs and trust them...not really......and that " happiness" imposed always is a huge money maker..not really.
    The 53 with racks still remains the money/time waster with this imo........53's....wide trailers....doubles...13 six's...102's.......barn doors......all garbage that slows stuff down unless we need for particular freight....just put it on the floor of the 45 and go....thats what works imo...no racks.

    This is just thinking. Who knows what will really happen?
    I guess road guys have been waiting and waiting long hours for a long time now. We had a lot of freight even with the 53's. Too much freight. The problem was how late it came in for city to get off dock.
    But now it is slowed. Why not go back to what worked which was the 45. One trailer size made it all much easier imo. Easier for the driver. Easier and quicker for dock too imo. A few years back, as many houses were being built and distribution centers and stores and strip malls....they started putting up signs even on double-yellow lined roads which say "No trailers over 45 foot".
    The 45,12-6", 96 or 98, roll down door trailer is the simplest most perfect trailer for the job here. If you have more drivers than freight, which we are finally back to....why not go back to what worked.....instead of all of the miserable dock time using load bars and loading and unloading big stupid all night 53's?
    Who knows?
    The changing constantly wastes alot of time...too much thinking....it all slows everything down.
    A mindset of speed was replaced with long tedious BS thinking stuff...It makes everything into slow motion.

    Slave, I can say in the few years I spent on the dock I can say I agree with you. But a whole lot is on the outbound supervisors. Many times I would be told to move a 3//4 head load so the OS would get credit for the tonnage . Or just before close outs OS would have you combine loads. So much waste due to management.
    As far as this Change of operations goes? Doubt they can make it work..But sadly the thugs in charge will continue to get their mega bonuses.
    What I see coming are plenty of late trailers in the mornings and P&D guys getting out late. That will turn into missed pickups. I agree that they should just go back to the system that worked. You know ,when Newpenn ran in the low 80's...

    YRC is waaaaaaay to smart for the simple system which made money. They're not gonna let that happen. Losing money is their goal it seems.

    They need to shrink it Slave. Losing customers is a never fail plan thought up by YRC executives. Remember the merger? 30,000 jobs gone in the blink of an eye.
