    Holy cow!! You don't know how accurate you are. 1949 Ford, my first car, bought for $100 in September 1959. Flat head V-8, 3 speed with overdrive, exactly the same as the photo except it was grey. You're beginning to scare me Mud! :smile new:

    Took 18 months at Preston, but I got every dime. Warn act, and 5 weeks vacation, (two from 99, three earned for 2000) i think they were the only company to ever pay the full amount.

    The article mentions being sold to local investors. Doesnt mention those were Yellow Freight VPs. Or that Yellow still paid some of our fuel bills. Or that Yellow built our Richfield Ohio terminal, and ordered 600 trailers for us with no decals on them. We were to get the bugs out of two day freight (St Louis to Richfield to Boston), and then close, letting Yellow Corp keep Saia, the Ohio terminal, and the unbranded trailers.

    According to that years NMFA, if we closed within a year of being sold, we would dovetail. They bought us in May, 98, closed us July, 99. Saia is spun off today...

    Worst part. Drivers went out with deliveries Monday. Customers told us Yellow emailed them the previous Saturday that we were out of biz. Yet YF had nothing to do with us?????

    I got every thing owed by PIE, plus 2 trips I never ran, my conscience never bothered me enough to return the check.

    Sounds good! They only way we get something back is to stand up to the union and the company, it's sad that it has come to this.
