    Here's some recent comments from company CFO Stephanie Fisher...

    Getting ready for next year's labor talks
    Being a unionized carrier, YRC is not in position of needing to raise wages at this point to attract new drivers. The Teamsters did make concessions during YRC's most difficult days, and Mehrotra said there was has been "bluster" from the Teamsters getting prepared for negotiations on a contract that ends in March 2019.

    Fisher would not discuss wage numbers, but said YRC is going to need "flexibility in the work force to actually run the business the way it needs to be run." She discussed a scenario in which a worker would be more of a utility worker, allowed to perform more functions than at present. Mehrotra asked whether it was "realistic" to think the Teamsters would move toward that model. "The good news is we have outstanding (union) leadership," she said. "They have been very helpful in the last 18 months. I think in the next nine months we can spend time talking to them, and letting them know the issues so that this is not a surprise."

    I guess they need to bend us over even further for 2019.

    I CAN SEE AN OFFER OF 25 CENTS PER YEAR RAISE BEGINING THE SECOND YEAR. THE FIRST YEAR YOU GET A 750 DOLLAR BONUS. PLUS NO MORE FREE INSURANCE. 100 DOLLARS PER WEEK FOR INSURANCE SOUNDS ABOUT RIGHT. ROAD DRIVERS HOOKING THEIR OWN TRAILERS AT NIGHT. DROPPING AND FUELING AT DESTINATION. IF THE DOCK NEEDS HELP FINISHING UP AT NIGHT I'M SURE THE ROAD DRIVERS WILL HELP INSTEAD OF SITTING IN THE BREAK ROOM DOING NOTHING BUT COLLECTING FREE MONEY. THE SAD THING IS A BS CONTRACT LIKE THIS WILL PASS.
