My Vote is YES
My vote is an even firmer NO. Now I have confirmed for a fact they have set little or no limits on how far they will go when bringing our work rules down to the worst in the country. I have confirmed there is nothing that assures a pension of any amount, even if the vote were to be Yes. I have confirmed that work conditions will be a hybrid similar to UPS casuals at Conway(working conditions). I have confirmed that we (Teamsters) have given them more than enough to pay off the debt they claim they are struggling under, yet they continue to spend hundreds of millions of dollars overseas building another company and hundreds of millions of dollars in the US building up competing networks, instead of paying the debt. A company truly broke would not make these financial decisions.
The crap company knows they can get away with all of this and then some with the onions blessing, after all they've got a perfect model with CF. I still can't believe this poc onion gave all those linehaul jobs to freakin non onion glenn moore. Non onion and they're still losing tons of cash. PS: Wonder how much cash the onion burned through this weekend in D.C. at the pro-communist rally.
Before you cast a vote, research, realize, and be aware of what exactly you're voting for, against, and weigh both long term and overall effects your vote may have on peoples lives.
The company is struggling. They may have made mistakes. The question is whether they are better off BK or CHPT 11, or in alliance with the union for a recovery.
If you have no trust, no hope, and wish for no job w/ YRC Worldwide, by all means, vote no and apply at Fedex or UPS. However, if you feel flexibility may prevail and your patience will finally be rewarded with stability and a pension, you may want to consider a YES vote at this very important critical time.
I think that everyone that wants to work for $12.00 per hour with no pension should leave on their own, and leave the rest of us with a good paying job. Don't bring us down with you.the people who want to vote no should vote yes and take a leave of abscence if they think the grass is greener elsewhere just quit and move on and prove everybody wrong
