    Teamster Freight Members Ratify YRCW Job Security Plan
    Teamster members who work at the freight companies of YRC Worldwide Inc. (YRCW)—Yellow, Roadway and Holland—have approved a Job Security Plan that provides economic relief for YRCW as it works to get through the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. The modifications were ratified by a 58.5 percent to 41.5 percent margin, with 64 percent of members casting ballots. Ballots were mailed to union members on July 17 and counted today.

    Guess you should have gotten Zollers before he got you.
     
  9. 1.) Zollars probably doesn't need a pension check.

    2.) How can you expect a man to agree to losing a pension contribution, one that he was contractually entitled to, and one that he may have been getting for decades, all while the company made a profit.

    3.) There more to life than New Penn.
     
  10. Pretty sleazy, cutting a contractual pension contribution before having the vote to allow it. I'm not surprised members are disgusted.

    NO MORE DOLLARS FOR ZOLLARS!!!
    Screw him. He's steered the ship into the icebergs
    too many times. I worked too long, and
    too hard to give it back to somebody who
    has taken home over 40+ MILLION DOLLARS...
    and made every mistake possible.

    That kind of management does NOT
    deserve concessions...
    That's my final answer

    The company also announced progress on improving its liquidity position by executing contracts with NorthAmerican Terminals Management, Inc. ('NATMI') to sell and simultaneously lease back certain facilities, and to sell additional excess properties. The aggregate sales price is approximately $81 million and the property sales are intended to close during the third and fourth quarters of 2009. Sale and financing leaseback transactions are now expected to generate around $375 million of cash proceeds and excess property sales should generate over $100 million in 2009.

    Take your crappy attitude and get the hell out of my company! The vote was for Teamsters only and we said enough is enough! Change your name to YRCSales.

    Sorry NP Driver1, can't do that....Everyone has their own opinions and "the teamster vote NO" at NPME controls the destiny of my career and paycheck for all those "non-union" employees, both in Lebanon and the field and their families. Remember, New Penn Teamsters represent LESS THEN 10% of total teamster population in YRC. So if you view another way, we are not even a pimple on an elephants (YRC ) a**.....New Penn needs YRC, more then YRC needs New Penn. They can close us down on Monday and not miss a beat on next day regional service, as their system is already set up and ready to go. So like I said, all us Non Union NPME employees future's are at the mercy of your NO vote....Obviously we are not part of the solution and don't want to be, so like I said in my first post, Mr Zollars can close us down and will be fully justified, based of the "NO" vote...The damage is done, now we can sit and hope for the best. Personally, the last one out, shut off the lights....Well done brothers....:clap:
