Well folks - Yellow/Roadway (now known as YRC Inc.) is in full merger mode.
We have been moving equipment and files from the Yellow facility in Cincy to the Roadway Terminal next door.
it looks kinda strange having a yellow truck pulling a big R trailer and vice versa...
Coming back from Chicago yesterday I had a roadway tractor - a yellow lead - a new YRC jiff and a new YRC pup on the rear...
looked like a patchwork quilt going down the road!
Many Junior men are losing their jobs when all is said and done - but they do get to hold onto their seniority for 5 years - which will allow them the opportunity to rejoin once the economy gets better - or move to another area that is hiring.
I have been at Roadway coming up on 5 years - and for the first time EVER was laid off.
I was laid off last Monday - and called back wednesday...
which worked out pretty good since I did not have any hours to run on Tuesday.
In a sick way I was hoping I would be off thru the beginning of February - (Daytona Bike week etc etc !!)
But it looks like we are running pretty good right now.
The guys in the hot seat (probably losing their jobs or settling in for long lay offs) are the ones who were NOT working as of December 18th 2005 (when merger COO was announced).
