YRC Teamsters to Vote Next Weekend

January 18, 2014.  YRC Teamsters will be voting once again on a contract extension, this time in union halls on January 25-26.  The proposal, reportedly toned down from the initial “wish-list” proposal by YRC, was negotiated with the IBT.

We will publish the full proposal and other information as soon as it is available. The “two man” meeting of local officers to see the proposal will be Tuesday, January 21.

Ken Hall had a long side-bar meeting with Harry Wilson on Wednesday; YRC management requested the expedited vote to have time to work with lenders to get debt refinancing in place quickly.

Hall has inserted himself into more and more of IBT operations and bargaining.  Wilson was appointed to YRC’s board by the Hoffa-Hall administration.

Many YRC Teamsters, who overwhelmingly rejected the first offer, have said they would consider an extension without the “wish-list” of concessions.
