(Washington, D.C.) – The Teamsters Union has won a $1 million settlement on behalf of YRC Freight’s road drivers.
The collective bargaining agreement with YRC Freight limits the amount of over-the-road freight that can be put on trains or hauled by non-bargaining
unit personnel. The Teamsters Union monitors those amounts. After reviewing the situation and convening a meeting of the committee that monitors
compliance, it was determined that the company had in fact exceeded the permissible amounts.
