    Wow well lets check some facts
    YRCW is a holding company and it says it right on there web page http://www.yrcw.com/
    Acrbest Corp is also a holding company.
    What you fail to see is both of these company are no different then XPO

    Here is opening post that started this thread. Pursuant to bullet point No. 1 Recruiting is not allowed. You've been doing alot of that since you joined this thread. Since the thread's main purpose is for XPO employees to discuss issues, the least you can do is have enough respect for employees who simply want to know where you work, if you're retired, or if you're even a truck driver. Right now, the only think I know about you is that you're a union schill and schilling for the union is prohibited.
    "Rules:
    - this is a discussion thread pertaining ONLY to XPO terminals and union activity. Recruiting, or discussions about other teamster issues is not allowed.
    -this thread is for XPO employees to discuss issues. If your not an employee ( I'll know), your coming in as a guest. Act like it. We can have a mature conversation, without name calling, belittling, or other childish behaviour. I also will not allow this thread to be taken over by non employees... period. Any such childish behaviour, and your gone. This is the only warning.
    -this thread will be civil. I repeat, civil. Any :horseshit: will not be tolerated.
    - no names are to be used. Any threats of "outing" a member will result in an immediate and permanent ban from trucking boards, no exceptions."

    I’m done. Roadboss has been blocked from responding on this thread anymore, but he can still read the thread. Veiled threats, talking about yourself in the third person, and pm’s I’m still trying to decipher. We asked simple questions, looking for honesty and the decency to at least tell us who you work for. You refused. Your done.

    I deleted my post since Roadboss can't answer in an open form. In no way did anything on that post would have outed me anyway. Since he can't reply in open form I took it down

    This data is not complete they never ask any of these people the very big question "how much debt do you have not including your house" I sure almost all these had credit card and auto loan debt.
    I not sure what this has to do with the union because last I looked they make less per hour that we do

    Going forward, this thread is for xpo employees only. People from outside xpo are no longer permitted to post in this thread.

    Thanks.

    That’s probably for the best. I’d be ok with them if they could add something to the conversation but it seems like all they want to do is argue and insult us.

    :horseshit:. There are jobs everywhere. People that leave are going straight to work. You couldn’t be any more wrong.

    Stfu? My opinion is the goal posts have been moved far enough here from where they were that moving on is a real possibility, 2 applications have been filled out if your that concerned about my wages. Not to another ltl company because I think we all agree that going from one to another is a basic lateral move. Wages are a piece among health and welfare. The industry is going backwards on the health and welfare. For most I should say, believe $30 a week at upsf gets you %100 coverage and $100 a month for every year of service paid out in pension but I digress. Don’t feel too bad that I’d like to stop cuts and possibly improve benefits. We just lost another 2 days pay yesterday, some people could care less but forgive me for saying I do

    And they seems to think we are the same skill set and needing the same compensation as a fork lift driver in a warehouse. If working in a warehouse and driving a truck pay the same, why would anyone ever drive a truck ?
