if only they would break down the OR's for each rergional instead of lumping them together.
but the regionals are turning a slightly better OR and we are doing next day and national with each other
a well made point that has been overlooked
Don't think Joe would know about the givebacks as he is retired..All he does is preaching his yes agenda...
Yeah but don't forget who they are using for the long haul "Glen Moore""
You're right I got a raise every year I was there but life is not fair
and no, I don't want to see New Penn go out or have any job loss
but yes I think a no vote will cost jobs at New Penn..your call, bro
you know..speculation is the mother of all evil..Zollars made a huge bet with borrowed money and leveraged out the system to the max with debt..somebody has to pay that off
too bad it's always the workers
The only "YRC" bashing done by New Penn employees on this board is directed at YRC management. We sympathize with our YRC Teamster brothers due to the fact New Penn operations have changed for the worse since YRCW has been directing NP senior management. I can't wait till the vote is done so YRC board posters will stop comiong over here and causing trouble. Noone here has a big ego or thinks were are "elite." We turn profits consisitently and are part of the solution necessary to turn this entire company around. Retired freight Teamsters should have more important things to do than insult the ones doing the job now.
I rarely if ever insult any one..well almost never but we only get to chat in voting season
please remember it's not how much you make for them that counts..it's how much you cost them. Thank you and goodbye
How much does New Penn cost them? Are you serious? Produce evidence that NP causes YRC or YRCW to incur any kind of costs. You say you are a retired freight Teamster with years of experience, yet all you do is post nonsense and moronic pictures unrelated to the thread topic. Shut off the computer and go volunteer somewhere with all your free time.
Jack Peak, YRC Worldwide's senior vice president of labor relations and employment law,
"The Restructuring Agreement creates the foundation for a comprehensive financial restructuring and a viable, sustainable companies (sic) going forward," Peak wrote. "Without the Restructuring Agreement in place, New Penn would have a significantly higher cost structure than those companies that are covered by the Restructuring Agreement. As a result, the Company would not be in a position to maintain New Penn as a separate operation."
This means New Penn would be generating less profit for YRCW due to higher labor costs from restarting full pension contributions on January 1, 2011 than if concessions are enacted. It does NOT mean New Penn operations would cease to be profitable, or even lose money on a consistent basis as YRC has. Do you understand Joe?
Think it through before posting bullcrap copied from incompetent YRCW senior management here.
Ya, I understand that but that is not enough..it's a cultural clash. It brings big mergers down all the time. All the in-fighting..being uncooperative..not knowing the consequences of butting heads with Roadway-style management who runs the rat pack.
Did you get a pat on the back every day or was led to believe you were a valued employee because you did your job every day? Being profitable is something you guys really get off on. Where did it get you? The only thing you know that counts at YRC is what you do wrong..everything else is bs. YRC is thee evil empire..not a good ol place to work for. You might think they're incompetent but it's their game..they make the rules
S. O. C. The leeeeeech sucks on. When did either Yellow or Roadway last make even a penny on the buck?. The same thing is going on on the west side.
who let the lizard out?
Someone needs to get back on their meds. You really don't understand the difference between YRC and YRCW. Until you do your posts are not relevant to the situation at hand. What the hell does culture clash have to do with running a business and making a profit? At the end of the day you either make money or you are out of business quickly, unless of course you rely on government subsidies to continue operations (GM, Chrysler). Us New Penn guys don't get off on being profitable. As long as the company is successful we continue to receive a paycheck. No pat on back necessary-it doesn't pay my bills. Stick to the ridiculous clip art.
wanna tell us how a yes will stop this type of crap when all you know how to say is yes
a couple of things..I'm happy to see you don't have you own exclusive forum anymore where you can throw people out with
personal attacks for no reason other then you don't agree. You and the guy who lives in the shoe are the worst offenders
Here you're just one of the boys and not the elite money making YRCW basher. And you constantly bash my clip art. In case you weren't aware culture clash has everything to do with a failed merge. In fact it is one of the biggest reasons. Your elite management not co-operating with the management that wrote the book.
If you had more kind words for YRCW on the street it might be a success some day
What exactly do you have against Newpenn Joe???Most of your posts,you have them closing,guys end-tailing,or operating with fewer terminals,always doom and gloom ..And when a guy says he works NewPenn proud you try to put him down for it..Guess you never gave Roadway or Yellow or what ever company you worked for 100% ... Get over it Joe,we ain't going anywhere :nono_h4h:
The thought of New Penn or Holland having a say in anything is what Joe has against us. I think a bankruptcy court would tell them to sell off the regionals, or at least try to. We might survive but YRC could be questionable. The fact that a NO vote from us could lead to that, tends to disturb some!
I cannot believe your last sentence nor could I understand the logic of a no vote. I finally understand. You actually believe they would try to sell the regionals in a bankruptcy and a no vote would lead to that?
I have a little sad news for you--
If YRC goes down in bankruptcy the regionals go down with them. All the assets would be sold to pay off a mountain of debt..land equipment, terminals etc..but not a whole company with drivers. FedEx and Con-Way could sift thru the ashes and buy what terminals and trucks they're gonna need to take up the slack.
Best case scenario then..you work for them
you worry me,bro
the last thing I want to see is a any union company go out of business
