Yrc Master Freight Agreement 2019

The preliminary agreement includes many improvements, including: Over the past decade, the YCW`s operating companies have operated under a series of Memoranda of Understanding (MOUs) that included significant economic concessions needed to enable the company to survive. At the beginning of the negotiations, the union committee not only tried to reverse the trend of concessions, but also noted the need to withdraw from the structure of the MEMORANDUM of Understanding and return to a traditional contractual structure of the NMFA. The members had not had a new contract for almost a decade. The preliminary agreement achieves this, restores the traditional contractual structure, and achieves significant economic and non-economic improvements for the Teamsters. This has not been an easy task, as YCW companies continue to face financial difficulties, upgrade their equipment and try to regain market share. The preliminary agreement includes important economic and language improvements for membership, as well as creative tools that will allow companies to increase their market share, expand into new opportunities and improve services, while protecting and improving jobs, seniority, working conditions and opportunities to gain membership (see inside for more information). The committee also criticized many efforts by companies to enforce cash advances for health premiums and other reimbursements. Voting is done through the BallotPoint Election Services voting system. In the package sent, members will find the agreement and a summary of the highlights, including questions and answers. But instead of a paper vote, members will find an individual access code and simple instructions on how to use the access code to vote by phone or internet.

WASHINGTON, May 3, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Workers represented by the Teamsters at YRC Freight, Holland and New Penn have voted to approve the national master part of the YRCW`s new National Freight Framework Agreement, which increases wages, restores a week`s vacation and protects benefits. Soehl said the union committee has worked extremely hard, focusing on the smallest details of business operations, finances and maximizing protection and benefits for members. Ultimately, each member of the Bargaining Committee supports and recommends this interim agreement. The national master part of the agreement, which includes about 25,000 workers, has been ratified within a margin of 60 to 40 percent. All but one of the 27 regional supplementary agreements (Joint Council 40) were also adopted. The national treaty will enter into force only after the adoption of the addition of the Joint Council 40. The parties currently have an extension agreement in force. Employees must report to work as usual. “The negotiations have been very difficult and complex, but we strongly believe that we have negotiated an agreement that will protect the livelihoods of our members over the next five years,” said Ernie Soehl, Director of the National Teamster Cargo Division.

“All members of our bargaining committee believe that YRCW companies cannot afford more money than is contained in this preliminary agreement, and that there is not a single penny more to get. We have brought the company to the absolute limit. The Teamsters National Freight Industry Bargaining Committee (TNFINC) for these negotiations was made up of nearly 30 public servants and agents from many local unions across the country. At all times, the focus has been on restoring as much as possible for members and improving as much as possible. .
