    1970 Strike Yellow Freight System (49 years ago)!

    1994 Strike Yellow Freight System (25 years ago)!

    Is it time to get the barrels and firewood and get ready to "hit the bricks" again?

    I walked the line at Preston. A block away, Churchill went on strike as well. By the next day- Chirchill closed the doors. An hour later, our Local Pres came to us at Preston, and told us to go back to work, or we were next. If YRCW strikes, clear your locker before you go. They'll close.

    By the way, some YF guys came over from their strike, and worked casual on our dock while they struck...

    Do we have to wait till April 1 to take a strike vote or can that be done earlier?

    You can take a thousand of them , but there's never going to be a strike.

    Agree this is all posturing.
    My guess is a 2 or 3% raise and back to the 'new normal'
    Everyone knows the alternative.....

    I was at CFCC at the time, couldn't believe we worked through that strike. We were told the international and the company had "come to an understanding ", or we would close.
