    Default Laid off and watching others move in!!!!!

    I have been laid off since Sept. Now I get to watch 3 other guys come to my term and work while I remain laid off. Had a "follow the freight" bid not filled by anyone. Thought I was back to work......would make sense. Now I find out they went to the "pool" and someone filled it. I STILL STAY LAID OFF!!

    Would not be so bad except they are overloading us with people and the freight is not there!!! They will lay off within 2 weeks of the change further pushing me down in call-back. We have gone to our Local and the thought is "Wait till its done then file a grievance" Anyone out there getting pushed out also???????

    Last day for me & 20 more brothers on the 28th.....I was also laid off 11/07 to 05/08 with 5 others....all the while there was freight being held for weeks to months & upper mgmnt refused to let our terminal mgr. call us back. You know that pissed off customers!

    Now freight is dead customers are leary of Yellow's past practice's & I'm curious even with this so called needed merger if the morons at the top can keep YRC alive.

    I for one will not be waiting for a call back....Time to change careers. Best of luck to all of us!

    A career change sounds good. Only problem is , there's nothing out there. I'm not laid off, but only worked 4 days last month, 3 this month. Been looking for something else since early Jan. Nobody wants to pay!

    My Buddie just took a job with one of those find work for you companies that seem to have all of a sudden popped up and all he is gonna get is 20% of the gross on any load he hauls. He is guaranteed to be home everyday but 20% just don't get it in my book.Might as well draw unemployment.. He was out looking but nothing there in trucking and I think he had no choice because unemployment ran out I think.

    New day March 2. I was laid off in Dec. , still getting to work a few days here and there. The combined list now puts me on as a 10%....don't know how long that will last.....I have been with Roadway for about 12 years and have only on occasion had a bid run.....so 10% I will be until I can get out of this.....Been a teamsters 20 yrs.
