YRCW Gets a Delay for H&W and Pension Payments

In a report to all locals representing YRCW members, IBT Freight Director Ernie Soehl told officers that YRC, Holland, New Penn and Reddaway have sought a “grace period” to delay making health and welfare payments to various funds Teamster members are covered under.

YRCW has asked for the delay on payments due in April, and perhaps in future months.

Soehl explained that the IBT is not objecting to the delay because YRCW has experienced a sharp decline in volume as a result of the COVID-19 crisis. He says that the April 1, 2020 raise will be included in paychecks.
