Roadway Proposes Major Change of Operations

Roadway Express has proposed a massive change of operations, which would cause 955 Teamsters to relocate. They are seeking a union hearing on February 9 and implementation by March 12. The breakbulk terminals in Greenville, SC and Hagerstown, Maryland would close, as would the road driver relay in North Lima, Ohio.

Roadway management is selling the change as necessary to maintain and improve service; they are slower than other carriers on some lanes. They also highlight that the proposed change would maintain the same number of Teamster jobs and would convert 168 sleeper jobs to solo jobs.

It is likely that there will be a lot of holes to fill with new hires, especially on the dock.
