YRC and IBT Issue Memos on Attendance Policy

February 19, 2014: YRC, New Penn, and Holland Teamsters all have a “clean slate” going forward from February 9, 2014 when it comes to documented absences. But management is ready to move on the “new” national uniform attendance policy so every member must be prepared.

Tyson Johnson also issued a memo on February 7, 2014 addressing a range of issues regarding the “Extension of the Agreement for Restructuring of YRC”. He outlines responses to frequently asked questions on the 2014 and 2015 bonus, profit sharing, attendance policy, paid vacation and purchased transportation.

With every contract, including this latest concessionary extension, the devil is in the details. Look over the memos to learn what’s coming down the pike. Remember these memos aren’t the contract but they are management and union interpretations of how it’s going to play out. Be prepared.
