    I figured they would run all that short mile stuff with Utility drivers.

    well i guess i need to make it a better ?
    Has anyone seen or heard anything that might lead you to think that Holland might be shutting down MN?
    my reason is in SL we send serval loads that way and that would mean more cuts. So whatever you want to call it but that is why there is a forum to talk about it so maybe SHOEMAN you souldn't read this if thats not why your here. I want to talk about it with others NOT be keep in the dark and feed B.S.

    I see it that way too, kinda.
    This board would be (was) pretty dead without such things.
    What else is there to talk about?
    There are plenty of message boards dealing with fishing, politics, religion, food,etc.
    This one is about our work.

    4 more city guys laid off tonight at LO. I am sorry for all the negative things I said about the new contract. Hell, I think it is starting to work out well.

    They left the South alone for once and I was told all layoffs were in the north.

    There is around 200 just layed off in the Southern Region Alone!!! So much for SYSTEM WIDE DISPATCH RULES. We have people with 11 yrs layed off and there is still drivers with less then a year going to bed in Nashville and Atlanta with all these lay off's.
    And there is plenty of frieght still in both places.

    OB do you honestly believe the lay-off weren't coming with or without the present contract? Lo is probably a lot like Me in the why us old or shall I say senior guys won't let the "Holland Way" go. Cross-dock, 0 customer relations, GOING BY THE CONTRACT and of coarse poor service is the new way YRC does business. None of these have anything to do with our contract. The traveling management team tells us if we would just do it their way we will become profitable again. Daystalker,they use Knoxville as one of the terminals that they have converted and are doing well. Can you confirm this? The way I see it,"Its their way or the highway". I remember a few yrs back Yellow in Me went through the same changes as we are going through. Pallet jacks and 2 wheelers on ever peddle. They accepted these changes and are doing fine. Us Holland guys couldn't believe how stupid this was and know look at who is the joke. GRIZZ

    Grizz you are right because when I work for Yellow in the early 80's that was way they operated back then. They layed off 1 more city person in DS

    I don't get this part of your post. Is that a bad thing?
    We would love to have pallet jacks and two wheelers on every peddle. We can't get the equipment. If you are not on the first two or three start times you can't get the equipment.
    I get really tired of having customers move other peoples freight to either get to theirs or move it to the back so my next stop doesn't have to round up a rope/chain. Oh and try looking professional when asking if they have a cart or two wheeler you can use.

    Grizz, Dont just take my word on this. We were told if we got our bills per hour up. There would not be a layoff. We got the bills per hour up. The following week...They layed I believe it was 8 men off.
    They have a plan. They are going to stick to that plan. You can do what you think you need to but, they will still do what they need to.
    This new contract just gave them the upper arm in my oppinion.
