The Teamsters Union has filed a grievance to put a halt to YRC Worldwide, Inc.’s outsourcing of clerical work that should be done by Teamster members.
The grievance was filed on Tuesday, June 7. In addition, Teamsters General President Jim Hoffa sent a letter protesting YRCW’s actions to the company’s chief operating officer, Michael J. Smid.
It is the Teamsters’ contention that YRCW has outsourced clerical work, including billing, to India and the Philippines. Such outsourcing is contrary to the YRCW restructuring agreement that was recently approved by members.
The Teamsters Union is demanding the issue be resolved quickly and that the impacted union workers be compensated.
