The Language Changes in the Agreement is a Trade off for what LITTLE We get Back! I AM VOTING NO!
Gee,you must know something the BIT and our union accountants don't .
Please enlighten us with your knowledge insight .
he must be getting his information from that yrcw Facebook's page... plenty of misinformation on that page..
You never settle for the first offer on anything! We've heard that chit for 10yrs while they raised their pay and took bonuses, come on wake up!!
This is the offer presented to the members.The negotiations were extended.
The union even walked out of negotiations.
They’ve told us they have squeezed every penny out of them they can get.
This ain’t the 80’s when the union tells you they don’t recommend the contract.
You guys are gambling with your future.
5yrs ago they were on deaths doorstep, the company was telling everyone they were going out of business and we still pushed it to a second vote, theres been no talk of that, the companys bought thousands of tractors and trailers, theyre not going out of business on one no vote, the banks would never get they're money! Do you work for YRC?
I don't recall YRC ever saying they were going out of business. What they said was that they didn't have the cash necessary to pay off the notes/loans coming due and if they didn't get refinancing they would likely have to file Ch.11. That act would scare away shippers and likely force them to go out of business. Back then the investment banks wouldn't refinance the loan without seeing that they would reduce their expenses by getting concessions from labor. If they didn't do that they would likely not have the cash flow necessary to pay off the loan. Get your facts right. They long ago made bad business decisions by borrowing to overpay for Roadway and USF. That's ancient history. Where we go from today is all that counts.
How. Did that work out for ups freight
What all. These threads all boil down to really two things.
Do you want to work?
And just vote.
All this stuff is making one dizzy and sick.
Just vote no.
Just vote yes.
All speculation and this and that.
Just a mans opinion. Some educated some not.
My opinion has been in the pot too. After reading alot of this stuff I see posts by people who seem to have not been involved in this forum up till now. Alot of new people. Sure some have been in the "union" along time as they post they say how many years. Some do. This thread started by someone with his (her) first post.
Where have you been? Vote no. Who cares?
Omgoodness. April 19 can't come soon enough.
It's late. Alot of hockey has been watched by me.
All my aggression has been taken out by players slamming the boards.
I'm gonna slam this board shut for tonight. Till tomorrow or later today.
Who cares, vote no, no one is going to try to change your mind making you finally feel important for the 1st time in your life,
If you feel the language is something you don't like (probably can't understand it) snd you feel you can do elsewhere, why on earth do you come to Yrc everyday, we don't know you, you're a new troll, so enlighten us dumb add, then go vote no
Urging ratification, Tyson Johnson, director of the Teamsters’ National Freight Division, said the concessions were “difficult to accept,” but added “if this [contract] modification is rejected, there is no doubt this company will go out of business.” Johnson said the recession “continues to wreak havoc on the trucking industry and threatens our members’ jobs.”
Maybe it was Tyson?
Our business agent said that they gave us all that they could give us. They also said at the money they are going to pay us if the new contract is ratified. That if they didn't change their ways management wise they would be out of business within the next two to three years anyway.
Them keep crying they have no money is kinda like this kids story
To repeat an old cliche, there are no guarantees in life. No question the company has been on shaky ground for a number of years now but they have been slowly improving things. I see lots of new equipment - tractors, trailers, switchers, etc. - in the system and the financials are slowly improving. The SEC filings and various financial analyst comments show that to be the case. People can believe whatever they want about the company and everyone has an opinion formed by their own experiences with their own local management. Obviously other companies are on firmer financial ground and they can afford to compensate better than YRC right now. That doesn't mean that YRC can't do better down the line and eventually bring us back to where most feel we "should be". To help get the company get to a better place I'll use another cliche - "Lead, follow, or get out of the way".
UPS Freight lost their leverage when the Package contract was ratified
I work at Upsf and people voted no on the first proposal thinking they gonna show the company who's the boss and look what it got us. The company pulled the freight out the system and they showed us who is the boss. The second proposal passed with flying colors. Thus mainly hurt our part time dock guys. Alot of them voted yes on the second proposal and now they don't have a job. We don't have all the freight back yet, so the parttimers are suffering right now. Like maybe 5 guys are not back yet at my terminal because of our freight levels.
Actually it worked out pretty good,we got them to reduce the hours for pension and vacation requirements and more money in the pension and the same rate for CDL drivers who work the dock.And the red circle guarantee for road drivers that work out of classification in other words your run is cancelled so you can work the dock and get $38.61 an hr.Some guys even stay home and get paid.
Not saying this is not a good deal, sometimes when a company is required to pay guys to sit at home, doesn't
work out well, "ask the UAW guys"
