    You are correct. During the recession, they cut 5%. Since then it was restored in 2.5 increments. I didn't know yrcs 15% was restored.

    Concerning these "CAMERAS".....it reminds me of what was said at "Aushwitz" ....."Hey, at least they're letting us take showers, how nice of them"..........the cameras will be the death of us ALL sooner or later. they will have someone dedicated to watching a bank of cameras and this person will radio a supervisor on the dock "So and So is talking with his buddy, go fire both of them" and they can sort it out at the grievance to get their jobs back. Anyone that thinks these cameras aren't meant to terminate EVERYONE is nuts. There is an old saying at the grievances by management (I know, I was a steward for twenty years) " We can fire you ten times, we only have to make it stick once." Through simple attrition, "WE" will be no more. It will be the new hires at lesser rates of pay sitting at your old spot in the break room. If you don't start also worrying about your "Brothers" you'll be the only one left and then what? Easy pickins is what.

    More name calling... I'm not surprised... Is that all you've got? No substance? I guess you can't argue when you don't have a leg to stand on...

    YRC employees have been getting raises every year since they took the pay cut. I don’t think they have gotten the whole 15% back but I believe they have recouped most of it.

    So from the time they took the pay cut (what ever that pay was) how much have recouped? What I mean is if they were at say $20 hour and there pay was cut 15% they would be making $17 hour. With raises they would be up to what at this time?

    I think they are around $20 an hour. So every year they get there raise which is around 35 cents then take away 15% from the 35 cents.....

    It has to be over $20 hour because I am making $24.35 now and 85% of that would be $20.70. I also know that YRC employees received a raise back on April 1 while we have been at pay free since the contract expired. I am not sure but I believe YRC employees have recouped about 75% of the 15% pay reduction. And maybe all of it by this time (from what they were making at the time of the 15% cut).

    They are at 85% of about 24.50 and that equals $20.82.

    My wife and I both were owner operators back in the mid 80’s. She was leased to Mercer and I was leased to Transus. Neither of us made enough money to survive on our own. So she went to cop school (I love reminding her of that, in that way) and I went to work for O.D. We both did better. I’m just saying Joe. These guy’s tell a story!
