    Payback is Overdue at YRC
    Bargaining began in late December at YRC, Holland, and New Penn. Members know the goal: a fair contract after years of sacrifice to save the company.

    Does the Hoffa administration get the message?

    Ernie Soehl, the freight director under Hoffa, put out a statement prior to the holidays. Soehl stated, “We want to get these companies back to a normal NMFA-style contract and we made clear to the companies that we are not interested in concessions in these negotiations.” He reported that economic proposals have not yet been exchanged or discussed.

    We want to make sure that the bargaining committee stands by Soehl’s no concessions stance.

    Restoring the lost 15% wage cut and negotiating raises along the lines of ABF is job number one. We also need to protect health and welfare benefits, and start to restore our pensions.

    The problem is that the company's debt, which led to our union’s cave-in on concessions, has not dramatically improved.

    “Members say it’s been nearly ten years and the company’s still in debt,” said Jerry Yarbrough, a Holland steward in Memphis, “and what’s to say, even with all we’ve done, that they’ll ever get out of debt? Why should we continue to bear the burden? Are the banks just going to bleed us dry and then walk away?”

    YRC Negotiations Resume, Continued Progress Reported

    The Teamsters National Freight Industry Negotiating Committee (TNFINC) met this week to continue negotiations for a new National Master Freight Agreement covering YRC Freight, Holland and New Penn.

    The parties met for full days over the course of the week and discussed a wide variety of issues. TNFINC secured a tentative agreement with improvements on a number of items such as equipment, safety, stewards and work opportunities.

    TNFINC Co-Chair Ernie Soehl stated: “We continued making progress for the members and resolved a number of national non-economic items. Obviously we will still need to tackle the difficult economic issues, but at least so far I am encouraged by the progress.”

    Negotiations are scheduled to resume later in the month.

    Another sell-out contract is in the works. Ernie Soehl and the Teamsters know no better and it is a damn shame for the workers. I'll bet you'll see multiple pages of 'Memorandum of Understanding' attached to the back of this contract just like we did before.
