    I proud to announce through your exceptional hard work this year,the following merit based pay rate increases.

    P&D hourly rate will increase $1.65 per hour as of jan.10,2015
    P&D overtime pay will now start at 45 hours a week

    Combo hourly rater will increase $1.65 per hour
    Combo overtime 45 PW
    Combo Mileage pay will now be payed a linehaul rate
    Combo dock pay will now be payed normal dock wage at home terminal

    Linehaul mileage rate will increase 0.035 CPM
    Linehaul will now be compensated for all time on duty not driving
    Example being pre postrip,fueling,weighing trailers,placarding,breakdowns,
    delays by dispatch,dot inspections,scale house time,&after 12 hours on break
    at non domiciled terminal you will be on the clock until dispatched.
    Basically anytime you are required to be on duty but not driving.
    with this change there will be no more breaking and hook pay for
    sets as this hourly pay will take care of that time.

    Teams mileage pay rate will CPM split @ 0.0375
    Teams Hourly rate will be split at same rate as above.

    Hourly Rate for Teams, Linehaul, Combo drivers On duty not driving time
    will payed at 80% of home terminal P&D hourly Rate.


    Remember this not an official release just for informational purposes

    thanks ,A B

    Hahaha is this a complete lie? The 1.65 raise seemed outlandish.

    Well, I could see them lowering the overtime to 45 hours a week, since most EOL terminal managers are only working the drivers 4 days a week.. That one was a no-brainer... But the rest, is guano...

    The guys at my terminal are convinced that in 2015 the FMCSA overtime exemption is being lifted and all trucking and rail must pay OT after 40. I've heard no such thing. Have you?

    Yeah it's a ridiculous rumor they're spreading. I think one guy must have started it.

    It's amazing how people choose to believe something if it sounds good enough. All I know is I googled and googled and could find nothing. That's enough to let me know it's absolutely not true.

    I was beginning to think I was out of the loop!

    You are outta the loop,if you're looking for the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow... The freight business offers no rainbow or gold, so forget it.... Rob will make one of his Top 10 Video's and then you'll know.. Until then, do your job and hug your kids, that's the only rainbow and pot of gold you have to this point...

    Thanks uncle Rob. Any word on when the dispatchers are supposed to start hooking our pups and when the secretaries start fueling our trucks?

    We got a 2 cpm raise in April of 2000, since then, nothing even remotely close.. You'll never see .035, even in a 3 Billion dollar a year.... I got 4 cpm that April, because we opened in January of that year...... 6 month raise time...

    Some folks are saying they are making a switch if it's not a good one. I've heard them say it before though.

    City always makes out big. Uncle Rob needs to give us line haul guys a chance to catch up.

    Old D is looking good especially the way I got talked to today by a line haul manager. He (line haul manager) really made himself look like an ass.

    They said the same thing about the raise back in January.. "You guys are really gonna like what you hear".. I come out of the TM's office scratching my ass asking "Is there anymore left on that DVD,because we sure didn't hear anything that "we're gonna like"... I thought maybe he paused the DVD or maybe cut it short...

    Mathematical question here to Uncle Rob.... You just spent all this money correcting the screw up you made by not buying new trucks for 3 years(some say it was around 8 million), rising fuel and maintenance costs, purchasing new pups and 53's like they are going out of style,lawsuits up your ass so thick you can't **** without Milk of Magnesia and you're gonna try to blow smoke up my ass, and tell these folks their getting a 3 cpm raise.. The money just don't match up, mathematically... You are either snortin' all time or most of the time... Get dat **** outta here....

    First they need to take care of the 5 different categories of driver thing and make a ROAD AND CITY BOARD, so guys like me that spent almost 13 years there and could run Linehaul, work a Dock, hUB DRIVER, CITY WOULD NOT LEAVE, because Time at a company should matter, Estes sucks for that.
