IBT to Yellow: No Contract Re-opener Without Economic Improvements

The IBT Freight Division has told Yellow the contract will not be reopened unless the company agrees that all items will be on the table and there will tangible economic benefits for members.

The Freight Division lays out the union's position in a bulletin to freight Teamsters and local unions.

The bulletin quotes a letter that IBT president Sean O'Brien sent to the CEO of Yellow informing him that the contract will be reopened only if it is a "true reopener where all items are negotiable and whether the Company is prepared to provide tangible economic benefits for the members if the contract ultimately is reopened.”
