Yellow's Massive Proposed Change of Operations

Yellow has filed the expected massive change of operations documents to consolidate Holland and New Penn into Yellow across the Midwest, East and South. The proposed change would create 998 utility driver positions, and 35 new velocity distribution centers, as well as consolidate and reconfigure various terminals.

Here are the documents: the proposed change of operations, the proposed utility employee change of operations, and the list of gaining and losing terminals.

The company’s cover letter concludes with the thought that it “will help improve its ability to attract and retain drivers.” That may be important, because we expect a lot of road drivers to retire rather than become utility drivers. However, improving wages would be more effective. That may have to wait until contract time.
