(WASHINGTON) – The latest addition to the YRC Freight, Holland and New Penn National Master Freight Agreement has been ratified by the relevant membership, meaning that the new national collective agreement and all endorsements are now fully ratified and will enter into force immediately. The national parts of the agreement`s control and all other supplements were previously approved by accession on 3 May. The five-year collective agreement between the Teamsters union and three lower-heavy freight carrier units YRC Worldwide, Inc. (NASDAQ:YRCW) came into effect after workers in western Pennsylvania ratified the latest local additions and drivers, as the company and the union announced today.

The five-year contract, which runs retroactively to April 1, 2019, involves approximately 24,000 employees of the YRC Freight long-distance unit and its Regional Holland and New Penn units. The contract provides for an overall wage increase of 18 per cent from 1 April until the end of 2023, a re-establishment of one-week paid leave and an increase in health and social security contributions.
For the first time, Holland will be able to acquire transport services outside the pool, but only up to the equivalent of 8 percent of miles travelled per year.
