Most of YRCW’s problems are systematic. Management refuses to listen to their employees!!!! And each and every employee is an expert in the job he/she does. YRC refuses to recognize that fact. YRC management continues to….DICTATE DOWN. They refuse to… LISTEN UP. If they would learn to LISTEN UP to their employees, we (YRC) would be profitable, again. Most employees I have spoken to (both management and union) agree that if management above them would just LISTEN to their ideas and suggestions, we (YRC) would be able to save ½ hour to 1 hour per day per employee of labor cost alone; this does not include operational costs such as fuel, oil, repair of equipment wear and tear, interest on our $1.4 billion of debt, etc. This cost savings (not including non-labor operational costs) would contribute $1.32 billion to the bottom line of the company per year. LISTEN UP, that means that in one (1) year, practically all of our (YRC’s) long-term debt would be paid off and we would be debt free and profitable. So don’t blame the union for management's inability to LISTEN (to employees--our most valuable assets) and return to profitability.
