Holland Plans to Hire Soon

June 8, 2010: Teamsters from several locations have reported seeing ads in local newspapers indicating that Holland Motor Freight, the largest YRC regional trucking subsidiary, is looking to hire. Others report that all laid off Teamsters have returned to work at their terminals.

This is good news.

But thousands of brothers and sisters at YRC remain on layoff status. They should be first in line for any openings at Holland. Article 3.2 of the National Master Freight Agreement calls for any TMI employer to give preferential hiring status to those laid-off from other TMI employers. That means YRC Teamsters, in seniority order, should get first dibs on any jobs prior to Holland advertising and taking applicants off the street.

Make sure your local is on top of any hiring at Holland, and enforcing the contract.
