    Default Trucking company YRC makes deal with Teamsters

    Neither YRC nor the Teamsters disclosed terms of the tentative agreement. But the company had said previously that it was seeking pay cuts, and Teamsters spokesman Bret Caldwell said the deal focused on pay, pensions and benefits.

    "There was never any discussion about amending work rules or any of the specs of the contract," he said.

    I am holding in my hot little hand a Teamsters Freight Update(posted else where in this forum also) that says "...the union is not interested in discussing changes that non-economic items or benefits..."
    So why will NMFA employees be presented with a deal that focuses on anything that even rhymes with pension and benefits

    I'm not an NMFA employee, I don't know any of the details, and I'm already slightly livid...............

    Bill Zollars, the company's chairman, president and chief executive, said in a statement that the trucking industry is continuing to see a decline in volume and pricing, "affecting our profits and cash flow and our ability to pay down debt from operating funds." "And that is why I am taking a 35% paycut myself," Zoolers stated.
    Wait a darn minute Zoolers There has been some fishy editing going on.

    You're absolutely right, Masterfreight wages will move down to Reddaway's, then all of Reddaway will become NMFA employees, and relabeled as Holland.

    Now, mark those words........

    No, I'm afraid not. What's gonna happen (now mark my words...) Reddastar is going to get shut down. Holland is going to get moved into an area where they have no clue what is going on (we had a name), and then all of you guys will be able to re-apply once they open. We will then be marked as "largely worthless" and we will have to give back again.
