I beleive the thinking is do well on the upcoming ABF, T-Force then Yellow contracts and show the Non Union workers there is a benefit to joining then try to Organize and be able to show those stronger contracts. the first question at the non Union companies is always why I should join ? Why should I pay Union dues ? You need a good answer.
That will be a hard sell if Yellow folds as a result. That has to be considered as a real possibility. They ar already faced with restructuring their debt next year which isn't a rosy picture.
