Grossly managed

Jason Bergman their Chief Revenue Officer has put every sales organization he has ever been in in trouble You can point to him as one of the managers that keep YRC In trouble. They need a management restricting not a government load

Need more layoffs. Cmon-lets go

The drop in bills as a percentage should correlate directly with the percentage of workers placed on layoff. Yrc freight has not even began to layoff the amount of people needed to match current freight levels. Do it. Do it now!

Not surprised

This was inevitable when they merged roadway and yellow. Roadway was always profitable and now they are going under. They sold all the good equipment and got rid of the better roadway higher ups and kept all of the yellow flunkies

The volume is not there.

Every freight company in America is laying off right now. The volume just is not there. And workers are stressed out about the virus. So there calling in sick or just not showing up for work.

YRC still laying people off..they tend to layoff in small numbers each month to keep the news on the down low. No raises/cost of living in years for people who have stood by the company in good & bad times…sad!

Layoffs at YRC on 10/27/2016

At least 15 were laid off on October 27, 2016 at the Overland Park office. I was grabbed about four hours before the earnings call. They gave a dismal severance package. After the market closed that day, the company held it's 3Q earnings call. Shares... —  read more

destroy the retirements of its employees

This is just one more co trying to destroy the retirements of its employees. This is a domino effect, just wait and see what happens to the erisa laws. Workers today will need to get together to stop this killing of American job benefits.
