ALL CASSENS’ DRIVERS ON THE AURORA SENIORITY BOARD
In spite of Cassen’s request for a pay reduction for all loads from the Elwood Rail Facility of 4.9%, we retained the business.
The Hyundai/Kia traffic was up for bid and Cassen’s was successful in winning over our non-union competition without the 4.9% give back.
Failure to keep this traffic would have resulted in about a 40 driver layoff.
CONGRATULATIONS AURORA DRIVERS!
