    If we are going to live in the past, I would like to go back to when Jackie Presser said that Double Breasting wouldn't affect the union carriers.

    You need to remember the past, so the dumb asses will not make the same mistake again....also, the NEW employees who are coming on here need to know the facts as they happened.

    Prepare for the screw over. When management reads some of the content post on this website they will have absolutely Zero reason to expect anything but continued submissive behavior from the rank and file members because of the poor to total lack of leadership by the Union. Unfortunately this situation has gone on far to long and now its no turning back in favor of the labor force. A harsh reality which must be accepted in order to move forward without the " hope drug " keeping everyone from progressing their own lives forward.

    I've had enough MOU's for now. We need a contract. We've given enough for the "cause. " I've had enough adapting and adjusting too. I've adapted from being one of the best to one of the lowest paid LTL drivers in the industry and adjusted more than a man that works 60+ hours a week should have too while the CEO's are taking bonus'.

    If yrc Canada can get a contact before the ibt election & get back the vacation we gave up + pay increases they don't need to try an ask us for anything, it's time they give us back what they took (stole) from us , it's time to stand the line together
