    Not a custodian and I don't make money doing everything I can trying to talk people out of joining a union. In fact, I've mentioned a positive about the joining the union, why would I do that if I was a paid union buster?

    Why would I admit to something I am not?

    You don't have to understand, and you are making an incorrect assumption there are folks at FedEx and Con-Way that I have nothing to do with.

    All I know is, something better be done, and be done quick.. This country is already full of incompetent boobs in DC, we don't need them in the workplace too... The middle class, which actually finances this country, is dwindling fast...

    I don't even know why there is a comparison between YRC and you all.Heck you guys will have much better than we do at YRC.I might even sign an application if you all go union.Jump ship in a heartbeat.

    The reason I started this thread is because all the no voters were trying to compare the contract we might get (their words) to the contract yrc has.

    I hear FedEx is building a new terminal close to me, I may get me a dock job over there.. Pretty big terminal from what I gather.. It's probably 30 miles form me, if it's part-time they can hire a school kid..

    The difference is that FedEx is financially stable, while YRC is not. As such, FedEx is phasing out trailers that are too "maintenance intensive" and replacing them with brand new ones. YRC, on the other hand, has had to press their aging fleet to the point of being on the DOT watch list because they can only afford to replace the equipment at a much slower pace.

    I admit, we have our fair share of junk. I'm always wary of pulling any of the Monon P pups because they are rotting far faster than they should be. But up until recently, Holland was still using TNT vintage '48 FRP trailers. They were snapping the pins off of them. I never worry about THAT.
