    As far as I know, there are no union OTR truckload companies. About the only ones left are LTL companies; Yellow and ABF (and their subsidiaries). There are a couple of smaller companies, Oak Harbor and Duie Pyle (?) and New England Motor Freight (?), but there are no national union truckload carriers.

    I know UPS is union and I think Dayton Freight may be as well (not sure on that one). Almost all LTL companies require some level of experience before they will hire you.

    YRC(old Yellow and Roadway), ABF, UPS are all union nation wide carriers which are LTL. Some smaller companies might be union too

    New england motor freight is union, but they have there own union, not teamsters or anything

    US Food is union as well. They are food delivery(kinda can tell LOL)

    Coke and Pepsi BOTTLING companies are union

    Most construction companies are union as well

    There are more companies out there, just need to do your homework and research

    NON-UNION COMPANIES
    Con-way Freight, Estes Expresslines, Old Dominion, A Duie Pyle, FedEx, Central Transport(although they NEED one), and USF(Holland and Reddaway)

    Don't really have stats on this to say whether that's the case or not, but there are plenty of construction companies which are non-union, especially in the South.

    In NY its different, about 85 percent are... hence why my company always delivers to them as most of them wont allow the non-union companys in.
