    I worked for Standard Forwarding. You are not the only ones working under a substandard contract. Current rates are $21.04 on the clock, $.50 per mile, straight up class 16 pension, and M-9 health and welfare (between C6 and C4). Giveback on workrules. Despite YRC teamster rank and file efforts to give the company their hard earned wages to get the company back on their feet, I still see a lot of tired equipment on the street. YRC and ODFL are about the same size. Old Dominion has been opperating at 85 for 7 plus years. Paying $29.73 on the clock and $.67 per mile. $75-90 per week 401k. YRC has been operating at 95 or 96 and claim they are struggling to pay the wage-benefit package. Either the professional accountants make cash disappear, or YRC is mismanaged. The union has 2 people on the board of directors helping to oversee opperations. What good has come from that? So the cost of ODFL wage fringe benefit package is higher than YRC. And they enjoy three times the profit. Yes I know about the large debt. Has it shrunk in 10 years? What am I driving at? The no transparacy, big secret make the YRC men I know think someone is dishonest.

    I hope the Union represent Yrc like they said they would. All last year they was telling us if we didn’t get the 15% back we was gonna strike. Nobody is talking strike right now. Its put up or shut up time. Its time to show what the Teamsters are made of.

    We should be back to full wages and pension contributions. The mou is expired. We should be back to the same contract as ABF. These assholes are negotiating a separate contract only for YRC companies. All power will now be gone in the freight industry. This was all part of the plan from the beginning of the concessions . When is everyone going to wake up. All YRC freight Teamsters need to stick together and say HELL NO unless we are back in the real Master Freight Agreement.

    Don’t know anything about the YRC contract. I hope it is a good contract. We here in Allentown Pa Local 773 pray you guys get a good contract. We have our own struggles with Pat Connors (central pa chairman). King Pat continues to sell the members of Central Pa ups out. King Pat did a horrible job on our contract with ups. He let the other BA’s in with him while he did his contract ( it’s his contract) he is the only one besides our useless BA in 773 that thinks it’s good. None of the BA’s were permitted to talk. This is a King Pat show and everyone will agree with him or he will treat you like crap and your local will pay the price at panel. King Pat
