How did they end up non represented?
And here's a video for your enjoyment.
Back in about 1999 Manny made some kind of deal then told the drivers if they stayed til the end they would get a severance.
So when the end came he reniged (sp) on it and closed the doors
A month later he reopened non-union. I don't know all the details except them former employees got screwed
Vitran did the same as yellow did. They bought or "merged" companies in 2008, the worst time (due to the resession). Vitran was more of a midwest com, till they merges with P-jax Freight in 08, to pick up east coast states. They in late 2008 they froze their employees pay and took 5% ( due to the "struggling" economy). Then in 2010 they bought Cjris truck lines, to service the southwest area, then a short time later they bought Seria West Trucking, to service the west coast, then finally they boughy Milan Express to service the south and southeast. In that span of 5 years they froze the pay for hourly employees. They tried to big a big boy in the LTL world, but failed epicly. Its another sad story of corprate greed and the big pockets of shareholders that wanted to get filled. I sure hope that the shareholders lost their ***es on this deal, becuz they robbed the hard working people of vitran for years. And i hope all the employees at CT and Vitran see this as the last straw and organize!!!! A man can have alittle dream........ cant he?????
They have been bleeding money for a wile since PJAX was merged with them bought out etc!
