USF Holland Contract Relief Tucked into Change of Ops

November 14, 2008: USF Holland got away with a contract change when the Teamster change of operations committee gave the green light to the company requiring road drivers to perform drop-and-hooks while yard personnel are on duty.

This provision was inserted into their Utility Change of Operations proposal, expanding the use of utility employees.

At 17 designated “Velocity Centers,” the company can now have road drivers cross-dock freight and use road drivers to do yard work, even while yard switchers are on duty.

Harrisburg Local 776, which includes one of the 17 terminals, objected to that part of the deal, because it violates their contract. It was approved over their objection.
