I am not surprised that the judge reinstated the suit. now the only question is, who will the teamsters bribe next to get the suit thrown out.

It won't go anywhere. ABF Teamsters had their vote to agree to a wage reduction just as YRC employees did. ABF is upset because their driver's voted it down and YRC's agreed to it. When ABF backed out of their "me too" agreement in 2007 they also agreed to negotiate with their employees on their own. Not as a unit with YRC.
