    Will this be actual earnings, I'm told they still can't buy parts to fix equipment (makes me wonder if earnings are being re-directed elsewhere), in fact our mechanic just quit outta frustration. You put your truck in the shop 3-4 days later you get it back and nothings fixed, his excuse was "we can't buy parts" the gypo's excuse for not fixing anything is "we can't get parts". So, I'm thinking it'll be another disastrous quarter to start off 2014 and if we go by past years the end of 2014 won't be any better.

    Yeah. But the Welcher and the other clowns sucked a few million of much needed parts money out of the company. Eat sh@t Welcher

    Here in the Northeast we are awaiting the change of ops announcement Monday. I suspect us New Penn guys will be delivering and picking up YRC freight to cover areas that are very costly for YRC Freight to service due to last years' dumb change of ops. New MOU will allow all kinds of interlining to begin among the three regionals to help YRC Freight finally show a profit

    I was told today that 211 had many dock workers and drivers quit within the last few weeks.

    Also, CRST drivers are loading and unloading trailers in the yard.

    I was also told by a 309 and 211 drivers that the Right-to-work contract seems to be working just fine for the company.

    Some terminals had this practice before the latest MOU. Cartage would come in and load after the company drivers cherry picked the freight. Now with the latest ratification of this POS contract, YRC teamsters gave the company the green light to give the work away. It was right there in black and white.
