[quote author=steppenwolf link=topic=79715.msg825997#msg825997 date=1272687438]Very well done i'm glad to see someone else beside myself read this. But did you see they also increase the layoff period from 5-10 year's. Also they but in a article for buying out another company the last time the layoff period was increased was then ABF bought out CAROLINA it was increased from 3-5 year's my question is ABF and the TEAMTERS making the menber's of ABF to buy another company and correcting the mistake the union did at YRC i'm just a dumb a$$ truck driver but it look's funny to me please spell check me. :tribe:
Yep, just like YRC They want the guys on lay-off to believe they have a better shot of getting back to work in the extended time.... Hoping that will help the company get a yes vote.........Everything that was done at YRC
didn't do nothing but keep the the guys with 20 years or more working and getting more O/T while the guys with lesser seniority still sit at home or working elsewhere........ Love when I talk to one of the senior guys and they go well you got ten year recalls rights..LOL Yea give up a job you might be working for say 3 to 5 years and then they call you back one day when they get backed up for 2 weeks then lay you off again.........
Already seen this happen at the merge of Roadway and Yellow last year....... Called everyone back for 2 weeks to clean up the mess then right back to lay-off....... I voted no on YRC's Concessions and I hope you guys read our forum every once in awhile and see what good it did for us........ Other than the fact that we employ 36,000 people as opposed to 80,000 that we did a few years ago, The only good that came from it is the higher ups got richer and the company is still in business for some .....The rest I guess it's time to move on.
