Yellow Corp., a truckload carrier, may face a potential strike by its Teamsters workforce as the company has deferred its required contributions for June and July, to preserve liquidity while seeking additional financing. The deferrals, worth approximately $50 million, impact pension and healthcare payments for workers covered by Central States Funds. Despite possessing over $100 million in cash, Yellow’s attempt to defer payments is causing unrest among its workers and may lead to a strike if payments aren't made promptly.
