Weak Enforcement

September 28, 2010: It’s not enough that YRC Teamsters gave up wages and pension contributions.

Our union is letting management get away with subcontracting, forced overtime with hundreds laid off, and dubious changes of operation.

Hoffa has even gone along with company plans and set up a “Competiveness Committee” made up of Johnson, Gordon Sweeton and other officers to meet with the YRC Board and management big shots.

You don’t have to have much of an imagination to know how “competiveness” will play out for working Teamsters.

ABF management has definitely noticed what’s going on at YRC. Management sees the green light for YRC and demands the same. It’s open season for management and Teamster members are the casualties.

Why have tough times meant concessions are a one-way street? Where is the Hoffa and Johnson plan to enforce the contract and win some for our side?
