$14/Hour Jobs Posted on YRC Websites

March 27, 2008: Before the new contract took effect, and with thousands of Teamsters still laid off, Yellow, Roadway and USF Holland started advertising for $14 per hour casuals. YRC management has made no secret of their intent to make use of the contract language that allows for the influx of part-time dock workers at the low rate.

With respect to laid off Teamsters, it’s important to check the language for your supplement. The Central States Local Cartage, Article 61, Section 1 states “…four (4) hour casuals may be used to supplement the regular workforce if all available regular employees at the applicable Employer facility are working or scheduled to work.”
