Yellow Change of Operations: Bidding Opens in the West

The Yellow freight change of operations is moving forward in the West, with the rest of the country to follow later. The change will implement the “Super Regional” network and integrate Reddaway and YRC terminals, and utilize Utility Drivers extensively. Nine terminals are closing in the West.

Bidding opened on August 5.

You can read the decision of the change of operations committee here. Protections in the decision include protection for road drivers who transfer to new road domiciles, who will be red-circled and guaranteed income protection (see #14 in the decision); NMFA and Western Supplement work rules shall prevail (Reddaway’s road operation may retain its call blocks). The Committee will retain jurisdiction for one year to resolve controversies.
