    Default Teamsters Union Wins $1 Million Settlement on Behalf of Drivers at YRC Freight

    Company Exceeded Permissible Amount of Freight That Can Be Diverted

    Washington, D.C.) – The Teamsters Union has won a $1 million settlement on behalf of YRC Freight’s road drivers.

    The collective bargaining agreement with YRC Freight limits the amount of over-the-road freight that can be put on trains or hauled by non-bargaining unit personnel. The Teamsters Union monitors those amounts. After reviewing the situation and convening a meeting of the committee that monitors compliance, it was determined that the company had in fact exceeded the permissible amounts.

    “Our YRC members have an agreement that strongly protects bargaining unit work and work opportunities and the company acknowledged that it diverted more freight than what is allowed,” said Ernie Soehl, Director of the Teamsters National Freight Division. “We will always seek to hold employers accountable by making sure they abide by our contracts and agreements.”

    YRC to Pay Penalty for Excess Subcontracting in 2017


    The IBT Freight Division has agreed with YRC to accept $1 million to settle all 2017 claims for excess subcontracting out road work using purchased transportation and railing over the contract limit of 26% of road miles.



    The money will be paid equally to all road drivers who pulled 15 or more trips in 2017; it could possibly be a gross payment in the range of $300 per driver, to be paid 'on a reasonable timeline... in the first quarter of 2018."

    The agreement between the IBT and YRC does not reveal how much the company was in violation of the contract, or how much income was lost by Teamsters during 2017 because of the violation.

    Poor YRC. This isn't the first major claim they have paid and won't be the last. Who could forget the Glen Moore days?
