    I really like this dumb comment from Sohel. It should have been clear right from the start.

    But what also became clear is that a lot of very complex and difficult work lies ahead as we attempt to craft a comprehensive Master Freight Agreement,” Soehl said. “Ultimately, the resolution of many of these issues is intertwined with the satisfactory conclusion of economic discussions and we simply are not there yet.”

    I shudder to think what a satisfactory conclusion is.

    YRCW Bargaining Update: Economic Issues on the Table
    Bargaining resumed this week for a new National Master Freight Agreement (NMFA) applicable to YRC Freight, Holland, and New Penn. The current agreement is set to expire on March 31.

    This week, comprehensive economic proposals were exchanged by the parties which resulted in a vigorous review of the respective positions.

    Teamsters National Freight Industry Negotiating Committee (TNFINC) Co-Chair Ernie Soehl stated that “obviously, these discussions are becoming more critical and consequential as we go into March and address the most difficult issues. Although we made some progress, the union is disappointed with the wage and benefit package the employer currently has on the table because it simply will not meet the level the members’ deserve or recognize the sacrifice of long-term employees over the past decade.”

    Nevertheless, the parties have agreed to resume negotiations over the next few weeks to attempt to find a solution. We appreciate the patience of the membership as we strive for the best agreement possible.

    Exactly as we have assumed it would be. "Disappointing" in regards to the compensation discussion being the key word here.

    Let’s play ball! Teamsters down to the wire in talks with YRC over new contract

    Good article and you need to read the whole thing.

    As baseball season is upon us, negotiators for the Teamsters and YRC Freight units are in the bottom of the ninth inning in their attempt to nail down a new five-year labor contract. Both labor and management are under strong pressure to hit a home run in the YRC talks. The Teamsters would like to restore a 15 percent wage and 75 percent cut in pension concessions made a decade ago in order to lay claim to what Teamsters President James P. “Jim” Hoffa calls “North America’s strongest union.”
    The company is under pressure as it struggles to restore profitability in even what the union concedes is a “cutthroat” LTL market place. YRC, and especially its regional units, are susceptible to freight diversion by skittish shippers the closer the talks continue to the March 31 deadline.

    But as officials for UPS could attest, sometimes the Teamsters require extra innings in order to be satisfied. UPS thought it had a ratified contract after 54 percent of Teamsters rank-and-file voted for it. But that contract still is not in place because of fine print involving “supplemental” side agreements with certain locals.

    Trucker YRC, Teamsters Tumble Toward Contract Deadline

    YRC Worldwide Inc., one of the biggest trucking companies in the U.S., and the Teamsters union are coming down to the wire in contract talks in one of the last areas of unionized operations in truck transportation.

    The International Brotherhood of Teamsters represents more than 24,000 YRC employees, or about 78% of the drivers, freight handlers and other workers at the company, whose subsidiaries mostly provide less-than-truckload service combining multiple shipments onto single trucks for retail and manufacturing customers.

    The agreement between the Teamsters and three YRC companies expires March 31, after a string of recent deals struck between the union and other carriers. As of March 15 the two sides remained apart on long-term wage and benefit packages, according to a bargaining update last week from the Teamsters National Freight Industry Negotiating Committee.

    YRC declined to comment on the negotiations. Neither side would discuss what actions they might take if the deadline passes without an agreement.

    YRCW Update: Tentative Agreement In Principle Reached

    The Teamsters National Freight Industry Negotiating Committee (TNFINC) and YRCW companies, YRC Freight, New Penn and Holland, have reached a tentative agreement in principle for a new collective bargaining agreement to succeed the current agreement which is expiring on March 31.

    TNFINC has granted a contract extension of the current agreement through May 31, 2019 in order to allow the parties to finalize some language and a few supplemental issues as well as to allow the union’s ratification process to take place.

    National Freight Director and TNFINC Co-Chair Ernie Soehl stated, “The parties have worked incredibly hard to reach a new tentative agreement in principle. There were a lot of issues, history and emotions involved with these negotiations. I want to thank the union’s bargaining committee for its hard work and support. We certainly got creative, but I believe we got every penny we could have and that this contract will improve Teamster lives.”

    As with the union’s practice, details of the tentative agreement will not be released until after they have been reviewed at a two-person meeting which will be scheduled in the near future.

    So I saw this on FB yesterday posted by a driver from this site and there was no way to bring it over here. First thing I did is go to teamsters.org and it wasn't there. They always post everything on FB first and usually don't post it on the teamsters site until the next day. Really irritating.
