YRC Proposes Another Change of Operations

February 25, 2010. YRC continues to push forward with further consolidation they claim is a response to inefficiencies and poor economic conditions. One proposal would move about 300 road jobs and 100 dock and city jobs. The other reduces the number of utility employees by 18.

The Change of Operations includes the elimination of some meet and turns and the reduction of road drivers at end-of-line terminals. The proposal calls for the elimination of “duplicate terminals” in some areas.

In a cover letter to James Hoffa, YRC states it has been in numerous conversations with Tyson Johnson and Gordon Sweeton regarding this latest proposed Change.
