Not me. I have almost 25 with Yellow. I am going to say the same thing as I did on my job. I voted and I did not vote no. Live with that.

Before I voted with 25+ years, I would have to call the pension to see what I could get right now. Not saying that YRC will fold but without any contros for 2 1/2 - 3 years whos to know what will be left in the pension fund. 30 + years I would be gone but I only have 20 @ 45 years old.

I have worked in freight for 34 years with a total of 28 pension credits at local 340 Portland, Maine.
My vote will be yes. Hopefully we can keep this company going until better economic times arrive.
