they did..... but they brought me back......You don't know just how hard it was for me to say yes to coming back!! but i figured the vote would be NO and it would just be another month or 2 till they closed New Penn and i would be gone from YRC for good!.... Thats what i get for thinking the Teamsters would never go for a Union busting vote!

It passed, you will have a job to go to Monday. Now, you can start looking for a job that maybe has more security for you and your family. It is always better to start a job search while you are still employed. If there's any doubt in your mind about that, just ask any of the less fortunate that have already been placed on lay-off. Best wishes to all.

What about us who voted no? Are we still brothers? How can we tell the difference?

That might be true for Mgmt. but as drivers, we are better off looking for a job while collecting UE. company's don't want to wait for you to give a 2 week notice to your employer! when they need a driver, they need him asap...... so someone with no job that can fill that position immediately, has a far better chance of finding a driving job over one of us under payed HALF/HALF drivers here at YRC.......... half/half = A non union driver who pays union dues.

YRC employees just put the trucking industry back 50 years, I can understand they want a job, but to sell out all the men over the years that sacrificed everything, went on strickes, walkouts, and hung onto their pride to get what we all have today only to have a few, give it all away in one vote. None of you cared what a yes vote will do to all of the trucking industry both union and non union. You only cared about yourself. ( hoary for me and f---k you ). I don't want any of you to come to me whinny about anything.

When YRCW and the economy comes roaring back just ask for all pay and bennies back to 2008 levels or threaten strike.It worked before right? Just strike to get it back.....
