    well, thats about par for Zollers.... close down the profitable company's and merge them into the non-profitable one! Any wonder why YRC is in such a mess!!

    you know, this just bust my balls. when i was at a non-union company(estes) and we tried to organize them here in baltimore, the union wanted us to record all threats of closures, loss of work, or job loss has this would be against the law and a nlrb violation. funny, now here i am with a union and the same type of threats that were illegal without a union is now somehow ok? oh that's right, must be because the union is also threatening us...

    The laws against threats for going Union probably do not apply once you are Union. :shrug:

    Threats to coerce you to vote for a contract are grounds for a labor charge. I question whether or not this qualifies as such a threat. It smells fishy.

    Negative..since the letter came after the vote was in I wouldn't call it a threat..there were plenty of warnings from the union no less and the company. If New Penn felt they were in a strong position and voted no..there will be regrets

    your right but it proves that they mean business and reddaway will be next/i hope not but this is reality and not a rumor very sad day/if new penn knew two weeks ago this might not even be a issue it would of happened anyway but they might of saved some jobs/good luck to them and thier families god bless us all
