YRCW Contract Vote Count Today

January 8, 2014. 3:30 p.m. The ballots for the YRCW contract extension will be counted today and tomorrow. At the first postal pick up at 8 am, the post office count was 19,483 ballots. The final pick up at Noon brought about 150 more. The postal estimates may be subject to correction when the ballots are counted later.

They are sorting the ballots into the various local union trays, and starting to open some ballots, but none have been counted yet. They are not checking eligibility; but accepting all ballots mailed in as valid, unless an observer challenges a particular ballot.

We do not expect any results until late today or very possibly until tomorrow, as processing and sorting by local will take a long time. The count supervisor, Ed Hartfield, estimates that the count will be completed by Thursday afternoon.

In the October 2010 YRCW concession vote, there were 23,000 ballots counted, but there were many more YRCW Teamsters at that time. The postal estimate today reflects about a 75% turnout.

This site will be updated as information becomes available. Stay tuned. We will post results by local union after they begin counting.
