IBT Freight Director John A. Murphy has issued a memo to Holland VP of Trucker Relations calling for an end to Holland’s use of Purchased Transportation by March 12, 2022.

The Purchased Transportation language in the YRCW National Master Freight Agreement allows employers to use subcontractors under restrictions that are enforceable by the union.

Holland road drivers have been experiencing excessive delay times and losing work opportunities while management dispatches loads to subcontractors. 

Under the contract, Holland is required to maximize earning opportunities for Teamsters.

Article 29, Section 7(5) of the contract gives the Teamster National Freight Industry Negotiating Committee the power to “limit or discontinue the use of purchased transportation” upon thirty days written notice to Holland.

At the end of the 30-day notice period, any use of purchased transportation is a contract violation. Holland Teamsters should document any use of purchased transportation to protect Teamster work.
