    Default YRCW to change name to Fedex Jr

    New motto better drivers worse management. This agreement sets the pace outside carriers. Jipos going everywhere with no stopping them there will never be another road hire again they can just say driver shortage or empty miles and call jb and hills brothers th haul it. Yea us it will be so fun.

    This steaming pile they served up resembles the Conway model to a "T."

    New Penn was excluded from that on the last vote

    Let me enlighten you a little bit Slave. These lying bastards farmed our work out before the vote we sent our message to the IBT reached them. 13 trailers of our P&D work were sent to the scabs to deliver while our workers were laid off before the holidays! ABF farmed their P&D work out citing an issue with their tractors and recalls of the equipment. They knew of these issues and never made an effort to resolve it! These are facts brother not fiction.

    We thought the same thing,guess again because if you have a imbalanced traffic lane they will stuff a 53 ft gippo trl with your Frieght and down the road he goes,no one is there to keep track of how many times this happens,who is keeping track of the 6%,let me guess the company right.

    The company played this well tho. With out usf and new pens road drivers voting no. And with most of yrcf dock votjng yes. This will pass. But note at the end they will cite this when they force it on usf and new penn in the name of making it an all encompassing MASTER CONTRACT again. I truely wish I could hope it wont pass but it will. Most of dock and p&d will vote it and most of usf, new penn road. It will swamp us yrcf road guys. An worst part is its illegal to let those other people vote. Violates the national charter. But whos got the money to sue anymore and the local is still drunk on the booze the company fed them in norleans. Oh well just hoping I get a real job offer soon. Looks like I will end up running for a truckload outfit. Damn criminal history. Everyone wants saint working for them anymore.

    As a former YRC P&D driver, why would anyone vote yes to this without a pension? It's working for NO future. It makes me sick. 25% is a joke. There has to be a better solution.

    I'd rather pay a little towards my health insurance than have no pension...At least you would be working towards retirement.

    It's difficult to get the younger guys to understand they will someday be knocking on retirements door and if this keeps up no one or nothing is there to answer,they live paycheck to paycheck and only think short term,personally I would forgo any pay raise for full pension contribution,problem here is its already so under funded that money will never get paid back in my lifetime if ever!.
