CEO Indicates Co. May Counter Sue ABF Freight

YRC Worldwide Inc. (YRCW) Chief Executive Bill Zollars called a legal challenge to the struggling trucking company's critical new labor concessions meritless on Friday, saying YRC likely will counter sue in the case. ABF Freight System Inc., the largest subsidiary of YRC Worldwide rival Arkansas Best Corp. (ABFS), filed a lawsuit this week against YRC and the International Brotherhood of Teamsters. ABF contends YRC's latest union concessions, as well as two previous rounds of concessions, violate the collective bargaining agreement governing the bulk of employees
at unionized U.S. trucking companies, tilting the playing field in YRC's favor in terms of costs.

"There's a very high likelihood" that YRC will sue ABF Freight as part of its response, Zollars said in an interview. "We think the suit is completely without merit, and we're approaching it on that basis as we defend ourselves here."

YRC said ABF isn't a party to YRC's labor contract and the suit "is in direct contradiction to laws governing labor contracts." The Teamsters have called the complaint frivolous..............

More money for lawyers, more money wisely spent by YRCW, more hot air from Zollars. Thought he was leaving?

So what YRC is saying is:" Your suit is frivilous and without merit. So in response, we are filing our OWN frivilous and without merit suit of our own! Two can play
this game!"

Don't you think YRC has better things to do right now than act like a 6 year old?

Now this is a NO WIN situation ! If YRCW does nothing what would everyone say ? Now the do something ( or say they might ) and what does everyone say ? If you listen to the conference call they did touch on this .

Stinks around here lately
Can we expect to see them battle it out on Judge Judy. I'd love to hear her tell Zollars "you're an idiot".
Then we would have two idiots staring at each other........GREAT TV....On another note, Wonder how come Joe is'nt all over this, he loves Zollars.....from the same article


"We have a few things to get done here before a new CEO steps in," Zollars said Friday. He said it's "hard to tell" at this point if he will remain past Dec. 31.

Our beloved company will spend all this money on this frivolous lawyer-enriching counter suit and guess what? They will cry that they do not have the promised funds to start paying into our pension in June. Mark my word.
