YRC Says No Cell Phones

March 9, 2010: YRC has issued a company policy saying no cell phones, including hands-free types, may ever be used while operating a YRC vehicle. Most drivers we've talked to have not heard about it yet. We don't know if management intends to enforce this new policy or not, or what the union leadership will do about it. The policy statement indicates that they intend to force drivers to sign it. Since when do Teamsters have to sign individual contracts with YRC? Stay tuned.

YRC's no-cell-phone policy is available here.
