YRC Worldwide – the parent company of YRC Freight, New Penn and Holland – and the Teamsters union have reached an interim agreement on a new collective agreement. Details of the new employment contract have not been released. David Ross of Stifel Nicolaus viewed YRCW`s statement as a reaction to the sharp decline in YRCW shares, which fell below $1.00. He noted that, although a YRCW press release stated that he had reached a preliminary agreement with the International Brotherhood of Teamsters on the modification of his current employment contract, the details were not reached. “We believe the company has put concessions on the table to be reviewed by the Teamsters, which may include salary cuts, pension allowances and co-remuneration in the health sector. The way in which members vote on changes to the employment contract depends, in our view, on the proposed concessions,” said Ross.
