YRC Worldwide union relations follow winding road

November 2, 2010: YRC Worldwide Inc. has won a third round of concessions from its union employees in the ongoing saga of its attempts at a financial turnaround.

Now, competitor ABF Freight System Inc. is suing, saying the concessions violate a labor agreement affecting drivers and dockworkers nationwide.

Defendants include Teamsters groups and YRC subsidiaries, among others.
