it's time to man up and vote NO!!! quit letting the union lie to you, and the company screw you and your family. NO matter what you give back, it will never be enough and they WILL BE BACK for more in six months or less. they WILL NEVER contribute to your pension again at any rate. how can they think of us giving back more when they are so bloated with useless management(thanks YELLOW). we all had a had in building this company up and helping it survive, but they are intent on destroying it. the time has come to end this sham. time to ACT like a union, take a stand, UNITE and vote NO. they want more money, fired some of these useless fat bastards!!! no need for 3 ATM's and 8 TOM's and 30 supers at 1 terminal. time for us to STAND UP!! my vote is a firm NO!!!

100% agree with you, BUT we have too many BROWN-NOSERS at our barn that will vote yes !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!, this is getting to the point of a nonunion company with work rules & Brown-nosers, so they get there run with no hand stops!!!

We have our share of suckasses but we also have the guys who are afraid of their own shadow, who tremble in the site of management.

noton24: Just a couple of questions: #1: where are you going to find a comparable job with the wages and current benefits? #2: Where are you going to find the mythical UNION you speak about? Answers: Neither exist. Was laid off for 18 months, just got back to work. **** Employers see YRC and figure you got Jimmy and Tyson shoved up your anal cavity, just lying in wait to spring out with sign up cards. There is only one choice, the other is self inflicted death. These are Extraordinary Times that require Extraordinary Actions. Get enlightened and informed before you think you know everything and espouse about it, just makes you look foolish. YELLOW is and has been the problem, always one paycheck from disaster and a predatory company, that acquires others, sucks the life blood out of them then casts them aside, IE: Preston, Jevic, Hall Brothers, that I can recall. Who knows if this will even fly? We may be out on the street in a month or so if it doesn't. Be extremely careful what you wish for, you might just get it. On your feet! Dismissed!

#1. You are taking for granted that if we vote no the company will close. Comparable jobs are USPS, UPS, ABF. Better comparable jobs are in construction and in the operating engineers union.
#2. If YRC closes the Union still exist at ABF, UPSF, and UPS.

YRCW is a mismanaged company,many of the supervisors will agree with that.What`s disheartening about the whole thing is YRCW has and is taking the money from it`s US operations to buy and fund the companies they bought overseas. That`s what the concessions are funding.As long as the economy is bad YRCW will keep coming back for more and more concessions.Now they want work rule changes,some of which have nothing to do with improving the bottom line.YRCW is 1.2 billion dollars in debt. It`s nearly impossible for a company that keeps downsizing and selling off assets to keep operating to pay off that debt.They can`t even pay the interest on it. A yes vote will prolong the inevitable,but sooner or later YRCW will have to deal with the debt they incurred.With a no vote,who knows what will happen.They way YRCW is treating the employees,it seems to me that they want a no vote so they can file bankruptcy and blame it on the teamster employees.It was a good job for many years,but now everyone has to decide,should we prolong the inevitable or just start over at a new career.

#1 if yrc closes do you think Abf will not also withdraw from the funds? #2 UPSF and UPS do not pay into fund. #3 Non Union Carriers will absorb all the freight we hual now with out hiring that many people. #4 There is a lot more to YRCW not going Bankrupt than this vote. They need to get more funding from the banks, Need to get banks to trade more dept for equity. #5 If we stay in the market we stand to pick up freight contracts like Target, Wal Mart, Home Depot ect... That we lost in the blunder they called the Merge of Yellow and Roadway.

#1: USPS, Govt jobs,because that is where we are all going to end up, it's called SOCIALISM and good luck with that. UPS and ABF will both file suits to decertify due to crushing amount of unfunded liability. Actually UPS is already out of the pension funds due to their payment back a few years ago, so ABF will be crushed. Good luck on a construction/labor job anywhere unless you are a MEXICAN or non English speak Communist block immigrant, although this could be your next government sponsored employment.
#2: CORRECT, Teamsters will still exist as warehouse men, cops, fire fighters, burger flippers and Jiffy Lube attendants. GREAT JOBS holding a Teamster card and working for cheap rates.

PS: YRC will close if they don't get the help they need. If you're in your 40's/50's, just try to get a job TODAY. 16 MONTHS unemployed, NOT ONE OFFER. WHY? Because I'm a 50's year old driver with 20+ years of Teamster time. Employers wouldn't touch you with some one else pole to hire you. Your personal record may be just like mine, IMPECCABLE w/Millions of miles of Safe Operation. You think that will help? Please report to the nearest ER you are suffering from Delusions of grandeur. It's down to swallowing pride and living to fight another day or committing financial ******* in the roughest economical times since 1929. You even bother to take history or economics in school? Wake up and take a GOOD LOOK around, the "Job" scape is barren.

It is intersting to how full of hot air yrc is and our union just seems to keep blowing it full of hot air instead of sticking a pin in it. When we gave the union a third of yrc the claimed they had our backs but now it seems like their shakin our trailors.

not only brown nosers but people that only give a **** about themselves.we have given back enough already and yrc is still not making money. we have bitched to them for thier lack of management cuts for the last 2 years, all have fallen on deaf ears.nothing is going to change its only going to get worse. when i first heard about another round of concessions i was naive to believe it wouldn't be that big of a deal, but this is a pile of horse **** .vote NO and lets move on.
