Posted On: Apr 19, 2012

 
Mar. 22, 2012 | The International Brotherhood of Teamsters approved YRC Worldwide Inc.'s plan to move its national transportation arm out of the next-day delivery business. A spokeswoman for YRC confirmed that the changes will be implemented on April 8. YRC Fright, the Overland Park-based company's national arm, wants to focus on long-range hauling as it sealed to regain market share lost in recent years as the parent company struggles with its finances. "The change of operations was approved, and it should help YRC tremendously," said Gordon Sweeton, assistant of the Teamsters National Freight Division. "It should help the company grow and lead to more jobs, which will be good for our members." Full story at here.
