    Think about what you are saying........... I can certinly appreciate how upset you are and I can't blame you for a minute because i would love to go to kc and meet them face to face for destroying the best company around but where are we going to find a union job in these times. do you think we are going to get a job at YRC with everyone they have laid off? are non union companies going to hire us when they look at our job history and find that we once worked for a union company? the question becomes do I want to give back 15% and still continue to feed my kids with the hope that we will some day look back at these days as a mere bump in the road or do I want to give back 100% and starve just to prove a point. think about it.....then the morons in KC realy win and we gift wrapped it for them. who do you think is going to be laughing when we gave them the reason to accomplish there goal?

    I'm a 3rd gen. teamster, my grandfather would be rolling in his grave if he saw what was going on, newpenn is done no mater what, look at yellows track record, I'd rather go out fighting and still have my PRIDE than curl my tail up my *****, be a yes man, and still have the same outcome.

    I guess you have no confidence in ur self driver. Remember one thing....YOU WERE LIVING B 4 NEWPENN AND U WILL LIVE AFTER NEWPENN AND YRCW. I've been laid off 4 a year and a half from HMEX and I'm still making it.:shift:

    First let me say....I am sorry to hear that. No one should be out of work for any period of time. but being laid off wasn't your choice. If someone said to you "do you want to be laid off?" I am sure you would say no. And that is exactly what I am saying here. If they give me another chance to vote....I will vote "yes" once again because I don't want to be laid off by choice. If i should get laid off, there is nothing I can do about it, but if I have a choice, I choose YES....I want to keep my job and I hope that my other brothers will join me. Remember we can only stick together for change if we are employed...... If we aren't employed, we dont have a word at all.

    And let , me just add one more thing. For those that say they want to go out with pride, if it were better economic times and all of us could walk out and find a job tomorrow, I would be much more inclined to join you all and vote NO and make that stand. But there are 10 million people out of work. There are no jobs out there right now. There are no Teamster jobs out there....... Why don't you try and find one this week, and if you can find one that will pay you our rate minus 15% and provides great health benefits for your family then let me know. I am guessing you wont have any luck and no one is going to take care of us but ourselves........

    I would not worry if I were New Penn employees. You are the only company yrc has that are making any money. Yrc is not in control to tell anybody who to shut down, the banks are in control. Besides who is going to run the east coast....? The old timers at yrc can't do it and all the younger guys are laid off. Another thing, all you hear form yrc employees is I Am Voting No but for some reason it always passes, New Penn said they are voting no and you stuck to your guns. Great job Guys and Gals for sticking to your guns.

    im with you my friend. the first seed of up-coming scare tactics have been planted. i think we all should've expected this. we knew YRCW would not be happy with the way our votes turned out but we didn't back down. i for one do not believe for a second that the doors will be shut on friday. another thing, YRC would have a Warn Act lawsuit and a pension withdrawal liability issue to deal with on top of the rest of their other problems. i can't see the banks allowing this. no f*cking way. only the weak, fear !

    You're a piece of :shit: !! go do your job and get some accounts! Find one newpenn teamster who voted no because they wanted newpenn shut down you dope!!
    YRC WILL be bankrupt in a year!! I voted no to giving them more of my pay and pension time to grease their pockets and watch them go belly up anyway. I put almost 22 hard working years in this company!! And I'll be damned to have someone from outside destroy us and sit back and do nothing!!
    I have kids in school a mortgage and bills like everyone else But I wont sit and take it up the :eck13: while they continue to kill this company. I have no problem with anyone who voted yes, they have there reasons. Dont come on here saying the no voters wanted newpenn shut down!!

    let's see: 746 no votes and 426 yes votes equal 1172 votes at let's say at an average of 65,000 a year= 76,180,000 x 5%= 3,809,000. now i was told new penn made roughly 20,000,000 last year. now if this is true yrcw is risking losing another 17,000,000 to save roughly almost 4,000,000? no wonder they are in trouble with thinking like that. the give backs don't come close to the money they would lose if they closed us. think about it.

    I belive and correct me if I'm wrong to merge = no pension liabilities. most yrc terminals have people who are laid off. in my opinion, even with a dovetail some people will not work,this is the reality. yrc would eventually lose many of the accounts they take get due to customer expecting New Penn service and not getting it.
    as was said by others, it's a no vote, so let the chip fall as they may and move on.

    corporate America is about greed and HUGE egos.those who run the companies will survive with their millions and move on. they could care less about the people who got them to the top
