    I ask If YRC is so broke how can they keep giving away shears to board members and upper management. I’m sure the CEO and CFO will turn some in themselves any day now usually on a Friday . ‘Tis the season to break even, Across the board at YRC.

    Mallard, did you read the SEC document mentioned in the first post? It said nothing about him getting shares from YRC. The document only indicates that he sold shares he already owned.

    Every one of the 9 non-management directors gets compensated with cash and shares for serving as board members, just like at any other corporation. The particular SEC document mentioned in the first post showed that he SOLD some of his owned shares. Like I said before, what's the big deal. It's really pathetic to see what kind of nonsense is being brought up to make out like something unusual is happening.

    Does a doctor only get paid if the patient survives?

    But, did he have to give back any of it so he could get the bonus. I mean, it really is the cost of doing business. Right? von.

    Teamsters pick Davidson to join YRC Worldwide board
    William B. Cassidy, Senior Editor | Jul 14, 2014 11:58AM EDT


    William R. Davidson, a veteran Teamsters labor relations official with decades of hands-on less-than-truckload experience, will join the YRC Worldwide board of directors.

    Davidson, who began his career as a dockworker at ABF Freight System, will replace Harry Wilson, the Teamsters-nominated director who left the YRC Worldwide board in March after helping the company complete a series of financial transactions that reduced long-term debt and secured a new five-year Teamsters labor agreement.

    Unlike Wilson, whose experience was primarily in finance, Davidson comes with a background in trucking that could help YRC as it works to improve operations and customer service.

    “Mr. Davidson has nearly four decades of experience in various operational and labor relations capacities with ABF, Roadway and YRCW,” the Teamsters union said in a statement.

    Davidson joins YRC Worldwide as the $4.9 billion company’s biggest subsidiary, YRC Freight, plans a limited expansion of operations after several years of losses and contraction.

    The company last month asked the Teamsters to approve changes to the YRC Freight LTL network that would expand certain terminals to better handle “significant business growth.”

    The carrier wants the Teamsters union to approve a change of operations that would turn three existing terminals into distribution centers, YRC said in a June 17 letter to the Teamsters.

    YRC Freight struggled with restructuring last year, slipping back into the red after a poorly handled change of operations that closed 29 terminals and three distribution centers.

    Since then, CEO James Welch and new YRC Freight President Darren Hawkins have emphasized improving performance across the company and customer service.

    Under the 2011 YRC Worldwide restructuring agreement, the Teamsters union is allowed to nominate up to two individuals to serve as “independent directors” on the YRC board.
    ***************************************************************************************************
    As a director, Davidson will receive a $75,000 a year cash retainer and company stock.
    ***************************************************************************************************
    The other Teamsters-nominated director on the YRC Worldwide board is Douglas A. Carty, chairman and co-founder of Canadian school bus company Switzer-Carty Transportation.

    Not too shabby for 4 meetings a year?!

    I guess that would depend on the doctor getting paid upfront in case the patient doesn't survive:hide:

    Board Members get compensated at every corporation but the question here is should someone appointed by the Teamsters to observe what’s going on at that level to ensure the corporation is upholding what it agreed to with the Union be compensated by that corporation ? Remember he’s not there to make operational decisions he’s there on the Unions behalf. Wouldn’t we all feel better about it if his compensation came from the Union ?
