    The wonderful world of YRC has learned the lesson hard. Who wants to freeze their butt off on a freight dock when they can find work for the same money elsewhere?

    The hiring standards were lowered to try and fill the shortage of applicants. We offer CDL training on site. People aren't busting the door down for this work.

    It doesn't seem like anyone wants to work in this business anymore, up the pay and they will come though.....one guy I work with family was in the trucking business and said that we should be with inflation around $35.00 dollars per-hour with bennies.......hell are contract and i am betting yours does not even give us a 3% rise....today it seems it all about Wall Street and its share holders forget about the people who made that money for you the people working the trenches the "Working Man/Women".......



    This same guy (a great guy by the way) likes watching "The Men Who Build America" on the History Channel.....I told him that the men who build a America are people just like you and me.....we the working people build America IMO and some don't like hearing this but UNIONS build the middle Class which before Unions was a small percentage of people......

    You folks need to be flat out militant! It's not going to change by itself. Defeat the apathy that infects the ranks. I've said this until I'm blue in the face. When you see the tally and the membership doesn't care enough to even submit a ballot? What's that telling you?

    If 2/3rds don't vote the international will use the rule of 2/3rds to impose this rag on us!!

    Anyone reading this is educating themselves,...And that is GREAT,..

    However we ALL need to educate our co-workers and make sure they understand how
    important it is to VOTE NO!!

    UPS needs and wants that 7 day operation to compete with Fed-Ex and USPS for Bezos's business...When the top executives at UPS and the Teamsters Union get a CALL from ONE individual that's WORTH $150 Billion Dollars...They answer that call with ''YES MR.BEZOS?''...

    Let's hope this video goes viral...This UPS Worker spells it out perfectly...Great Job....

    In the meeting they claim that we are the best paid driver in the Industry and they can not afford to pay us any more, are raises are like $2.40 per-hour over the next five years (5) and are spilt (every six (6) months) and that we do not own the market.......Believe Fed-Ex and OD do......let's see Fed-Ex has moved three times (all into bigger building) and so has OD we don't have a building that could handle all the freight in are market even if we could get it (have to spend money to make money) but UPS does not think that way.....so we are not growing which IMO is their fault no ours.......I could go on and on but have to get ready to go to the hall for there meeting on the contract.....gee, just can't wait to see their take should be interesting.

    They will say it's great,...

    They will say anything on the internet is political,..Internet is bad,...

    They will say a no vote means they close the doors,...

    Most of all,..EVERYTHING THEY SAY IS A LIE!!!

    I can't understand how the union leadership is holding hands with the company
    and pushing this so hard,....

    If the company want's it,....it's BAD,..

    I'm a NO vote,...
