    Thanks for the info Frog, I was not aware that one of the highly educated "idiots" had come up with this, I might add that in some cases it appeers to be working.:hysterical: Personaly to me it sounds like nonsense, but sometimes I can be pretty dense:shades:

    whatever

    whatever, whenever, however the company wants it. we gave many flexibilities in our local already, company abandoned most because they could not recognize seniority, could not operate a call list, and paid accordingly.
    what they really want is to cease recognition of seniority (aka, recognize seniority within operational needs.)this would enable them to theoretically put the best person to the task at hand( the biggest brown-noser in most cases.)
    also, they would like to subcontract, get rid of dockmen and replace them with part-timers like ups. they want to layoff and work everyone left overtime, etc, etc.

    All the customer sees is a Roadway trailer with his freight in it. Beyond that the customer has no ideal at all who hauled their freight. Could of been Roadway,Yellow,USF or whoever.
