YRCW Contract Rejected

January 9, 2014. 5 p.m. The counting of YRCW ballots has ended with the contract extension rejected by a vote of 12,028 to 7,623. You can see the results by local union here.

The votes in most of the biggest locals counted are decisively No, and many smaller locals voted No also.

What is the Plan B? Since rank and file opposition to the concession deal has been widespread and well-known, the International Union and YRCW should be hard at work on that already.

The count supervisor, Ed Hartfield, will announce the final results soon.

This site will be updated as information becomes available.
