Freight Teamsters are spreading a petition to send YRCW and the Freight Division the message that it's time for a fair contract after a decade of givebacks.
Members are signing the petition, posting it on social media, and collecting signatures at work.
"We're uniting the members and sending the company a message," said Billy Camp, YRC Steward in Akron Local 24.
The petition calls on YRCW and the IBT to:
- Honor the sacrifices freight Teamsters have made for the last decade to save YRC, Holland, and New Penn.
- Reverse the 15% wage cut and negotiate pay increases that close the wage gap with ABF.
- End the information blackout. Freight Teamsters should not be kept in the dark during contract negotiations.
