Office Teamsters Protest: YRC Withdraws the Change of Operations!

January 25, 2013: YRC has withdrawn the proposed change of operations which would have essentially thrown 120 Teamster office clerical workers out of a job. 

It’s good news for office Teamsters at 12 terminals nationwide. The proposed change would have consolidated the billing and collection work to an office near Springfield, Mo. While the clerks would have the right to follow their jobs, very few planned to do so.

Teamster clerks and some locals objected to the change. YRC is hiring at the nonunion billing center in Des Moines, and no nonunion clerks would have been eliminated or forced to move. This point was raised by clerks who objected to the change.

YRC CEO Jeff Rogers stated in a memorandum that, "there are currently no plans to file a similar change." Let's keep it that way.
