    CWF would never take the NMFA again. It would be the best thing for the drivers but won't happen. Although it was great when I was under it, I'm glad I'm not in their pension fund as its basically shot

    Are you YRC?
    If so is YRC now handling your pension?
    Last word I had YRC wasn't paying in all they were due.
    I don't understand your glee to be OUT.
    Have several friends drawing checks,as I hope to someday.And as far as I know they haven't missed a month.

    I was YRC. I'm no longer there, just forgot how to change my avatar. The years you have vested before YRC stopped paying into the pension fund the guys still have. So if you had 25 years in before you still get that 25 yeArs.

    A couple other barns have enough support that it will come to a vote. ULX which is downtown Los Angeles, Miami, Manchester, NH, LHG which is somewhere in Texas, and Irvine, California. There were some other southern California terminals that didn't have enough support which kinda surprised me. I heard Newark, NJ did too but haven't confirmed that. The company has been open about who's filed and they haven't mentioned Newark.

    Word is the Teamsters are gong the same route as they did @ Fedex Freight - EXCLUDE THE DOCK WORKERS FROM THE VOTING GOING FORWARD! It's something that has to be filed with the NLRB but it worked for FXF. The dock workers as easily influenced not to mention intimidated so I think that the voting will be a lot different if this happens.

    Yes that pension fund still has money in it. A friend of mine was under NMFA for a while then got a car hauling job and that's his pension plan now. he says it still has money in it
