YRC Teamsters Vote Update

August 6, 2009: The vote count is proceeding among the approximately 27,200 YRC Teamsters who mailed in a ballot on proposed deep contract concessions. Today was spent sorting the ballots by local union and opening ballot envelopes.

Many ballots have been placed into “yes” and “no” piles by local union, but some have not been opened yet, and no actual counting has taken place.

International Union officials stated they would not do counting today. The Hoffa administration also tried to muzzle independent observers Local 107 members Ed Brogan and Ed Taylor with a “confidentiality agreement,” which they declined to sign.

The process will proceed on Friday. We will post information as it becomes available.

Some 43,000 ballots were mailed out.
