    Information from today.

    All is quiet as YRC health benefits near expiration
    As the end of an eight-week extension of healthcare benefits for workers of YRC Worldwide (NASDAQ: YRCW) nears, questions mount on when the company will fund missed benefits payments and what will happen to its workers’ health coverage.

    In mid-April, the International Brotherhood of Teamsters informed members that the Overland Park, Kansas-based less-than-truckload (LTL) carrier had been granted a grace period on health and welfare and pension fund contributions due to a “sharp decline” in volumes amid the pandemic. The letter penned by Teamsters National Freight Division Director, Ernie Soehl, said the payment extension was granted for March contributions with the warning the carrier may seek similar remedy for “a few additional months.”

    On May 8, the Central States Health Fund, known as TeamCare, informed YRC members the LTL carrier was delinquent in making healthcare contributions on their behalf in March and that payments for April and May were not going to be paid. The memo informed members their plan was in “suspension of benefits status,” but that the health fund’s trustees had enacted “layoff coverage” and would cover their medical claims for a maximum period of eight weeks.

    Maybe they'll make us pay 2 or 3 hundred dollars/week or something like the great Obamacare stuff that Hoffa wanted us to vote for.
    Great!
