But the way this has been explained to me is that by next Fri. what the banks are looking for is just the consensus that we will negotiate a new contract and that it would voted on by the 1st of the year and in place. The same guy in YRC mgmt. that has told my friend about the 7% pay raise was questioned by my friend as to why this wasn't brought out in Dallas his reply was to please be patient and see what they bring to the table. He has again stated to my friend that they are not stupid as to what the outcome of a vote would be if they ask for more concessions. A new contract going forward is what they want for five years not the exact same as in place now. But guys check this out this is the one rumor you will love!!!! They want to give us back the weeks vacation they took from us but there is a catch--the weeks vacation back minus the 5 hrs. of straight time so instead of 45 hrs you would get 40 hrs of straight time. Please don't start bad mouthing me I am not telling you this is the truth and this is what will be but THIS IS WHAT HE WAS TOLD. And no elaboration on the 7% either as to what exactly that means. If you just did a straight up calculation on our hourly that would equate to 29 cents a year. Have to see what is negotiated.
