    Go to any non-union , like Dayton or XPO or Old Dom. ,or pick one that has a "Matching 401-K " so you have a it when you retire ,unlike our broke CSPF and plus they pay about $5-6 bucks a hour more too !! NO future at any of YRCW companies ,they just keep taking away from us !!

    he probably has enough time vested to have some sort of pension, whatever scraps are left once he retires. what he isnt saying is that those companies are going to be timing every single task they give you some of them you wont even work a full workweek and/or layoff. depending on where you live alot of those ltl carriers that are paying 5-6$/hr more wont even be hiring.

    J.Pierson probably left because he no longer has Tyson Johnson or G.Sweeton in his hip pocket.The other mastermind behind our pay cuts (The guy that accepted playboy superb owl party tickets)is in trouble.Without those players J.Pierson won't look so great

    I can not speak for him but I know from my own situation, I tell everyone to go somewhere else but I am not even looking because it sucks to change jobs. Forget about not having any seniority and starting over with vacation it is just a pain in the butt to change jobs not to mention waiting for you new health insurance to kick in. But if you are changing jobs anyway then you might as well go somewhere that has the brightest future and that is not working for a company owned by YRC.

    Something just to think about wong, maybe quit Holland and withdrawal from the Teamsters Union. You are vested in the pension fund. If anything is left, one way or the other, you will get a pension when you reach whatever age it's paid at now. Hire on with a nonunion LTL carrier that has a 401 with a match. I don't know your age but at twenty years of seniority, you still seem at a point where you can start over. Or stay where you are and start your own 401.

    Wong and I have discussed this many times, and he has offered to quit Holland and go full time with CRST if they will give us a new truck with a chrome stack, and bumper, aluminum wheels, and shiny girls on the mud flaps.....

    But if you Quit & walk away you are letting yrcw win the fight , and revenge is best served up "One O.T. Click" at a time !! but yeah the 2019 contact will just be the same extension of what it is now ,so after 1st of year ,time to be checking new options !! YRCW will just keep on taking away benefits and pay forever in 2019 or 2024 or 2028 and sad part is the sheep will keep voting yes forever too !! It's a fight you can't win with these Driver's to stand up for themselves , hell couldn't even get them to vote & mail back in the free envelope !!

    In my opinion it will get harder and harder for you guys to vote these things down too, simply because most of the guys that weren't scared to vote no like myself are gone! Eventually only the yes guys will be left, oh yeah also the ex con crew that probably is just happy having any job!
