A few employees are asking at the ABF round table if management could make a percentage of the fleet non smoking. The moderator said that if they did so, they would instantly have issues with a smoker not being able to dispatch in a smoker approved truck and vice-versa. More guys chimed in to say that they are suffering from being forced to drive smoker vehicles. The mod came back and suggested that ABF could put cameras in the trucks "like our competitors do" and start disciplinary write-ups for offenders. We have smokers that you would never know smoked... they crack their windows, and don't recirculate the cabin air. We have one guy that is the opposite, never cracks a window, smokes like a chimney and always recirculates the air. For the purposes of full disclosure, I smoke two bowls of tobacco in a 12 hour run, try to be respectful of others on ventilation, and most everyone says that the faint pipe smoke actually smells good. Permanently scarred instruments because a guy doesn't like a dash light, leftover food in the truck, a booger pickin driver, and a sick one that insists on working through the cold/flu is worse in my opinion. It would be nice if barn by barn we could work it out amongst ourselves, but I guess that running to corporate for solutions are the way of dealing with this. Heck...cussing out a motorist, stereo too loud, distracted driving (mgmt interprets case by case), talking on any phone, etc... can all be reasons for write ups...yeah, let's rally for on board cameras! (Insert sarcasm).
