YRC Reddaway Teamsters Reject Contract Offer

December 7, 2009:On Dec. 1, Reddaway Teamsters in Washington and Oregon narrowly rejected a proposed contract which the IBT and YRC agreed to.

By a 214-208 vote the Teamsters at YRC’s regional carrier said No, and will retain their contract wages and benefits until a contract is ratified.

The union bargaining committee, which includes a number of stewards, has been willing to consider concessions but not everything the company wants. Three months ago Hoffa appointed International Rep Bob Paffenroth as Chairman of the bargaining in a move to try to get a deal done.
