YRC's Proposed Mega-Change Deserves a Close Look

March 15, 2013: As Teamster Voice goes to press in mid-March, the International Union has informed local unions that YRC's proposed change of operations is being reviewed for substantive and procedural issues, and no hearing on it is set for March or April.

There are good reasons for a serious review. First, the sheer size of the change, with over 1,200 Teamster jobs being moved, and 230 being lost altogether. Second, the specifics of locations. And third, the way the seniority pool is overly apportioned, which assures the company that fewer slots will fill (meaning less moving pay and more workers out the door).

We encourage all YRC Teamsters to take a look and voice your opinions. The full change is posted here, and updates will be posted as available.
