    good point maybe like CF went out on Labor day YRC may do the same on Memorial day. I keep wondering how much longer the banks are going to put up with uncle Bills bull at YRCW

    Probably will be too much freight in the system for that day(end of month and before holiday). Maybe a week later?

    I hadn't given this too much thought, but just for sh*ts and giggles, knowing what these corporate people are capable of doing, due to the CF closing on "labor day" do you think zollars would do something like this? And smile while he collected his $15 million severence pay? Knowing that he alone, broke the union?
    That would be a memorial day to be remembered. Just as labor day is related to the cf closing.

    Put the pipe down boy's.
    This is the second step toward getting out of the pension contribution.
    The first step was the real estate deal.

    It's always been the corporate structure to screw the working man silly. We have been lucky for a long time to have a union to look out for us, but that to has changed.

    I have been layed off for 11 months now, carhaul is dead and freight is right behind carhaul. I wish you freight guys all the luck in the world.

    I have no more positive outlook toward corporate America, and no more trust in the union. It sure does give one pause.

    you think the customers care the people i see everyday dont care who delivers the freight or picks it up they just want the cheapest. trust me none of our customers give a crap. there is no loyalty. its all about the $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ $$$$$$.
