YRC; Facts surrounding the New Penn situation

Taken from YRCW Insight website

There's been a great deal of speculation in the marketplace about New Penn, where employees represented by the International Brotherhood of Teamsters are voting for a second time on the modified labor agreement.

We don't comment on speculation. Here's what we can tell you:

The company has not filed any change of operations affecting the network status of New Penn.

New Penn continues to provide superior regional, next-day transportation services to our customers.

We're proud to announce that New Penn recently won its 16th consecutive Quest for Quality award from Logistics Management magazine.

The bargaining units that haven't yet ratified the labor agreement modifications represent less than 10 percent of our company's Teamsters employees. According to information released by the union, ballots from New Penn employees are due back September 9. We'll provide updated information after the Teamsters release results.
