I wouldn't do that if I were you. If someone/company wants to do a background check on someone, the information they put on Face-book stays on there forever. So if people think YRC may go belly-up, other companies look at that info and may consider someone a threat, and they will get rid of, or elect not to hire that person. All I have to say is be careful about posting opinions and political views, because it is more than just other trucking companies who are reading them. For retired people its OK, others may want be careful. It is one of the reasons why I won't go Face-book or what's the other one, Twitter too.
I'm not tryin to step on your post KK but there is also a FB page for any and all YRC Drivers. You will only be excepted as a friend if you can be verified as a driver or dockworker and pages can not be seen by anyone else.

When you request to join that Yellow Freight one there's no place to tell who you are! I requested but I doubt I'll get in, and I worked for YFS for 24 years!
[/quote]Are you sure I got in without a problem?

Good! Then you know I was a hostler for 24 years at YELLOW, and for the last year I guess I worked for yrc. 85 to 2009, 087/POR.
[/quote]That was one terminal that for some reason I was never there. I been to Seattle a few times, and of course all the California terminals. Heck, I almost got arrested in Tracy, CA. They have a funny bunch of squirrels out in that state. People would think that they were part of the after affects of a science project. The type of people who would save the whales, before helping another person that are equal to themselves.
Ya the Calif. are a different breed but I became friends with a lot of the Orland guys, that was a switching point in a gravel lot, no dock, no hostlers. If you went to SEA before it was a break that was a no no, but they would try that every so often, usually dispatch would get ratted out by the Teamsters up there
Yellow Freight was pretty much what's left of the Teamsters these days. Couldn't find any with the other fraud company. I will give them some credit, right know I just can't think of anything that was ever good that ever came from there to give any credit.
"the other fraud company" good description, and thats all I can say without getting thrown out of here, lyin, pos, dirty filthy, oh .. I'm done. I took my retirement at the end of July at 53 years old with 30 years in. I was gonna go till I was 57 but not without them paying into my pension AND a paycut?? wtf? Where are you out of?
