Representatives from freight locals of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters Union, which represents most YRC (Nasdaq: YRCW) workers, met last week in Chicago to talk about the company’s operating and financial condition, the Teamsters said in an update.

Union members would have to vote on any proposed changes.
