YRC Proposal to Go to Members

December 5, 2013: Tomorrow Teamster local officials will meet in Dallas to hear directly from company representatives their proposal for a five-year contract extension. 

Management has met with the Hoffa administration’s top freight people, Tyson Johnson and Gordon Sweeton, regarding the proposed contract.

If the local officers approve a proposal to put the issue to the members, a vote could come soon. The IBT constitution requires a majority vote of approval by the 26,000 YRCW Teamsters for any contract extension. Members should have a chance to discuss and evaluate any proposal before it is mailed out for a vote.

On November 20-21, management presented a laundry list of concessions to the IBT Freight Division. Members have reacted with anger, and hope that the proposal will be modified before coming to a vote.
