    I heard that your ballots have been counted and 82% of you have voted NO to time and a half over 48.......They don't need that to survive. Good job sucking together. Correct me if wrong...

    Thanx Jeffrey. I have found a very interesting and complicated game on the internet and have been enjoying it much. I hit some kind of level of burnout with politics and union/company stuff.....and am enjoying some break from it. I'm sure it will come back again but right now I'm burnt out on a lot of stuff.

    Proposed 4 year contract. New hires will be taking it on the chin. OT will be after 48 first year, 46 second year, 44 3rd year and 8/40 after reaching full rate. Also new hires will get a little less into the pension. The health insurance is going up only $5 first year then $10 each year there after. Sixty cent yearly raises for city and .225 per mile first year for linehaul than .02 each year afterwards. Can't say it'll pass but this is what from my understanding they wanted to protect OT after 8/40. Some things to like and some things to dislike in this proposed contract.

    Top rate right now is 22.85 which is way below most other carriers besides yrc but their health and pension. Is way better

    I'm glad he answered cause I honestly didn't know. I just recently started working here. Yes the medical here is good. In 4 years we will be paying $85 a week for family medical with a $1200 deductible if this passes. I'm linehaul so the top p&d rate never really mattered to me. There's a few guys here from YRC companies in Buffalo. It's not the highest paid ltl carrier but the overall package is good when you compare it to other places.

    The medical costs I referred to above are for everything medical, dental and vision. The dental and vision you get through the IAM. The pension is more like an annuity now. Completely funded by NEMF. A little over $2 hour for current employees. 401k is on us but offered through the company.
