    Company says everything is going great. New equipment coming, expanding opportunities and they cant find more drivers. How about taking care of the people you laid off ? This was all in a letter dated 12/23 they gave to us with our pay today.

    No lay offs in Baltimore. Need drivers as do many other terminals I'm sure.

    As soon as the new guys get the cut 15% after the lowered rate for the new hire progression they quit, need to keep new hires at full rate wake up- up there in K.C.

    Thats not going to happen. Thats what was agreed to. Why work for YRCW when you can work at any other LTL carrier and make more money an hour, not have to give up 15 percent and get a full pension. If you hired guys, you need to work them 8hrs a day. No one should be hired and then laid off.

    A lot of the guys being hired wouldn't last at other LTL companies. They wouldn't have protection when they screwed up accidents, tearing up freight, poor work ethic. Some of the new guys at our barn think they are Teflon Don, do what they want and nothing will stick to them.

    we have the opposite. we have guys, senior guys, sit on the lift in the am and bs for about 2hrs a day while the junior guys are working to unload the inbound and get out on the street at a decent hour.

    Im sure the real reason why mgmt doesn't show the equity wages in our check is to keep the new guys. It seems when the new guys c the equity wages they are looking for a new job

    Have your steward make up and post a chart on the union board that shows the break down of the wages at full rate,the 15% rate and then the new hire rate.They should be informed of this info before they hire on!
