    It could be the first Teamster strike since 1994. Remember that one?

    No, I started in 1998. I would hope it doesn't come to that but 10 years of this is enough.

    That still may leave you short if your 2005 Ford Focus needs new front brakes.

    The first bridge to cross, will the Teamsters Union call for, and back a nationwide strike against YRC in 2019.

    Imo wong. The first thing to start on, is getting the backing of the Teamsters Union.

    Remember the people, members is the union, I can't wait too see if we stand together or cave in and complain again, we need to stand firm like the carhaulers did, YRC will start early negotiations, and threaten they will be forced to close there doors. Remember our for fathers would stand and fight for good contracts, it's time for us to stand our ground and fight for what we gave them. I am one that is going to stand tall and fight, if they close so be it. Call me fed up with all the B.S.

    Agree , like with the past -5% and -10% ,I argued with the local BA and send Emails to upper Union people to fight back and say No , but it was same old answer , no they will shut down ?? and then the very NEXT WEEK all the YRCW people got a Bonus & free stock shares ??and they all stayed at full pay ?? Just like our jerk Nyhan that us running CSPF into ground he stays at full pay too ?? YRCW has MONEY !!!

    No they will not call for a strike. Why, you say? Maybe because they used our strike fund money to pay the mortgage on the hunting lodge the IBT owns. Not to mention the fishing resort off the coast of Tahiti. Hope that answers your question. von.

    YRC is like the biggest bully on the playground, YRC will keep taking until we stand up and punch that bully square in the nose! Ten years of lies is ENOUGH!

    There will be no standing together. Hoffa has YRC, ABF and UPS Freight all under separate agreements. If one strikes the other 2 keep working. Hoffa eliminated any power this union had. If YRC strikes not only will the non union carriers pick up their work, your union brothers will too. I remember the 94 strike. YRC in 2019 would be nothing like it.

    I doubt we'll have to wait until 2019 to see a new proposal and another vote, me thinks something is brewing currently and there are going to be a lot of unhappy people...................................................................

    I believe that whatever this company and the union are cooking up that it will be enormously amusing.The thinking man statue will fall off its pedestal
