At the event, Yellow’s (NASDAQ: YELL) CEO Darren Hawkins said the company would look to align labor to freight volumes. He said the company’s unionized employee base allows it to “utilize contractual layoffs to match our hours available to the workload that’s presented to us on a daily basis.”


Yeah Darren! Right in the middle of a huge change of operations too!

It’s almost like the time they spent a lot of money and had their pants when the recession hit!
Did I say recession?

FXF is dealing with the same issues. Mileage piling up on trucks that can't get replaced.

And they refuse to rebuild them anymore.

Was told if we put in a new order for vehicles today the first ones that we might get would be around 2024/5.

Depends what you consider big time seniority.

I got 25 years, just had my bid cut, being told I can’t follow work to a terminal a mile away from my house and that I have to get doubles endorsement even though I’m high enough up to know I’m never going to their velocity bids.

Some of these terminals they want you to transfer to won’t tell you what the terminal will be running we can assume we know what they will be running but we need it in writing I wonder how many grievances was file about this change of operations

What is the definition of seniority? This should not happen.

Ok....nobody has any money to buy anything but gas and $5/gallon milk and pay utilities.......so let's lay everybody off....so that more people have less money to buy stuff.
Maybe everybody will end up on welfare so the taxes cut into the nothing everybody already has.
The taxes won't come down.
Layoffs will keep orders coming in and docks full of freight, won't they?

That ought to fix everything

Respect the science...and math.and economics ...and business mentality.


I know...I know.....I just don't see the big picture.
There are much more complicated things involved....like who still gets to keep and make even more by scamming and robbing everybody else.

As told to me by steward out West.
They were told that they would not going to be allowed to bid across the street to the Reddaway barn.
In the end they went where their senority would hold.
The city was split down the middle Yellow took everthing South
Reddaway took North.
Hows it working out.. Not real well
Breaking city freight for other city terminal is hurting their numbers.
Don't matter get rid of unwanted freight and shrink the workforce down just like the YRC-RDWY merger ....

If you have low seniority get out as soon as possible ! I enjoyed working for RoadWay/YRC . But their constant COO's did not fair well for me . I wasted too much time there. Seriously ! Let that place GO ! Management has no love lost on you ,they will let you you go without any remorse . Regardless of your work ethic or record . Truth be told !

Cayman -15% Tax Acountant
Patel said its called Syengry -15% rightsizing of workforce for the rightsizing of terminals , due to the mass reorganizing of terminals closed or sold off to make numbers look better ! But good news is NO upper management will be laid off and they will still get their Xmas Bonues and Good News is the DRIVERS will still get the a 6 pack of Spam , But with Bacon this year as a Bonus !!! Merry Xmas Drivers Enjoy !!
