    I'm sure the answer will be.....to pursue other endeavors. Now if it was one of us the word would be...fired and there would be a dastardly reason behind it.

    He was told to leave.Mr Rogers received a nice bonus check prior to the change.I would say MrWelch was tired of Mr Happy Jack being a cheerleader and not showing and leading YRC Freight in the right direction.Morally it isnt right for Mr.Rogers to get a bonus and not show significant progress.

    Speculation only. Jeff Rogers was an outsider. His career with YRCW began at Holland. He did reasonably well there. I think Welch thought that he could fix 2 problems at once. First he rewards Rogers for his success at Holland. Second as Rogers has no Yellow vs Roadway baggage maybe the persistent cultural war could be ended. Jeff wasn't able to rally the troops around a unified destiny. And frankly I don't believe the cultures, at least among many, will ever call a truce. I hope I'm wrong!

    I hope he was fired for allowing this disastrous last change of operations and forcing people to work a stupid amount of unwanted overtime. I would then feel he got some payback. We'll never know the truth, per usual.

    I don't think you are wrong. It will go on until the end.

    Let's just all agree that (no matter what company we used to work for) the company that we are working for has lied to us time and time again. Whenever they have an opportunity to talk straight they would rather tell us that employees are filing bad workers comp claims and we need to stop. Make sure you turn in your brothers and sisters. They wasted how many dollars putting out that crap? Nobody cared about how the freight moved but let's police each other. I am sick of hearing about how we have to save the company and while suck asses can feel free to do whatever they want and management doesn't say a thing to them. This company (YRC Freight, not Yellow or Roadway) has been mismanaged since day one. I'm tired of cool-aid drinkers and company guys who stab Teamsters in the back. Instead of doing managements job we should be holding their feet to the fire. Not enough Teamsters and too many suck asses with a union job.
