Following a tentative agreement announced late last week between less-than-truckload (LTL) transportation services provider YRC Worldwide and the International Brotherhood of Teamsters on an extension of the collective bargaining agreement of YRC’s 26,000 Teamsters employees to March 2019, details of the agreement emerged yesterday at a “two-person” meeting of local union officials.
By John Schulz · January 16, 2014
YRC said yesterday it is in discussions with the Teamsters to gauge “the next steps to move the company forward” on the heels of last week’s vote, which saw 61 percent of YRC’s 26,000 Teamsters members reject a five-year deal to continue 15 percent wage and benefit cuts.
