It seems there are YRCW managers actively trying to bring the company down. The freight load has been building for weeks, yet YRCW has laid off so many drivers there are no longer enough to deliver it. Spare trailers are full storing undelivered freight. Working drivers are putting in enormous amounts of hours at time and a half, as much as 70 hours a week, which is against the Teamsters union contract and many state laws. In order to cover up, YRCW has eliminated materials on which the drivers would keep their own time tabulations. So, what did YRCW do last week? They laid off more drivers, of course. Another item: the union contract specifies laid off and on-call persons are summoned for work in strict seniority order. The company has not been doing that, but seemingly calling drivers to work based on some type of "favorite list." The drivers know what seniority order they are in, and if someone lower on the list gets called to work, the passed over driver(s) file(s) a union complaint and are paid the same amount as the called in driver earned that day, and the passed over people have done not a single minute of work. Can you imagine what this does to labor costs?This just recounts a brief skim off the top of all the money-costing procedures currently happening at YRCW. Personally, I think this is the best short on the board.
