YRCW Teamster Wins 2019 President’s Award From Company


A 30-year freight member of Local 662 in Wisconsin has received the “President’s Award” from YRCW, recognizing his hard work and safety record.

Brian Mason was honored for his long, successful career with the company. In 2018, he was also honored for over 2 million safe miles travelled.

“I’m proud of Brian’s achievement and I’m pleased that the company recognized his decades of hard work,” said John Kaiser, President of Local 662 in Mosinee, Wisc.

Mason works at YRCW’s Little Chute, Wisc. terminal. His value to the company is on display every day where he generally runs north to the Marinette/Menomonee, Mich. area. Customers such as Tyco-Johnson Controls, Menomonee Industrial and Vu Food Service have relied on the expertise Mason exhibits every day and have increased shipments with YRC mainly because of his caring, professional attitude. Mason has helped the company gain more business that might have otherwise gone to a competitor.

“With the great health insurance my family has thanks to the Teamster-negotiated contracts, I wouldn’t go anywhere else,” Mason said. “I’m absolutely proud to be a Teamster. Everything I have is because of the Teamsters, YRC and my customers.”
