On June 17 there will be a meeting of pension fund chairs and administrators, and on June 18 there will be a “mandatory” meeting of union representatives from all local unions with YRC, Holland, or New Penn members.

The announcement of the meeting states it is to give “the most current information available regarding the YRC companies,” and that the International Union “must make some critical decisions” regarding YRC. The meetings will be held in Chicago.
