Just recently, a major corporation in a town near mine sold part of it's union manufacturing plant to a non-union company. What happened afterward to the sold off portion of the business wasn't good for the union employees. They were all fired and replaced with non-union employees brought in by the new company. Personally, I don't think Ron Jacobs is going to buy YRC, but if they were bought out by a non-union carrier, what's legal protections does the union have against the new company not honoring the union contract between Teamsters and YRC? For that matter, why should the new company honor a contract that it was never a part of? Wouldn't the former YRC drivers have to start over and negotiate a new contract at best or worry about being threatened with decertification or being terminated? I'm just asking questions, not trying to start any fights here. I truly don't know the answers and wondered if anyone else does.
