ATA Launches Job Resource for Former Yellow Employees

ATA Launches Job Resource for Former Yellow Employees

In light of the announcement that Yellow Corp. has ceased operations, American Trucking Associations (ATA) launched a new database to help jobseekers find new employment in the trucking industry.

This portal will connect former Yellow employees with prospective employers who are eager to utilize their unique and in-demand skills and experience.  

ATA President and CEO says he wants to ensure former Yellow employees remain part of the industry they have done so much to build and strengthen.  

Providing this personal information is completely voluntary and will not be given to employers outside of ATA membership, nor will it be disclosed to third-party vendors.

“Yellow’s closure is a substantial blow to America’s economy and the company’s 30,000 hardworking employees and their families in all 50 states," Spear said in a statement to PMTA. “The past several days have been especially difficult for drivers, dock workers, mechanics, salespeople, administrative and support personnel, and other employees, many of whom dedicated decades of their careers to the company.  Yellow personnel earned a well-deserved reputation as being professional and solution-oriented, helping countless customers to seamlessly navigate the complexity of logistics to ship their products on time virtually anywhere in the country.  

Spear said ATA hopes this tool will help former Yellow employees find work in the industry. 

“Since its founding nearly a century ago, Yellow has been an integral part of our supply chain.  As the nation’s first less-than-truckload carrier, it was a key part of trucking history as well.  Through the company’s involvement with the American Trucking Associations, Yellow employees promoted the industry and were tremendous advocates for highway safety, leading by example."

PMTA's Northwest Chapter is hosting a job fair in Erie, PA August 19. Employers from across PA will be hiring on the spot for a variety of trucking industry jobs. It is free to attend, though we suggest bringing a resume.
