USF Holland Goes for Change of Operations

October 22, 2008: USF Holland, in a letter to the union dated October 17, has given up on its proposal for an addendum to the freight contract to have road drivers perform more dock and yard work. Instead, they are reactivating their proposed Change of Operations and asking that it be heard in November.

Holland is the nation’s largest regional freight carrier and a subsidiary of Yellow Roadway.

Holland’s previously proposed addendum, to expand road driver cross-docking and utilize road drivers for more yard work, was killed when some locals objected to it.

Holland’s proposed change would expand its use of utility employees. It would “adversely affect the road classification,” according to management’s letter.
