    Speaking for myself the only pay raise I got as a senior driver was the one that took me to the same level as a legacy vitran driver that works side by side with me and has over a year less seniority than me but yet was making 1.50 more an hour, then he started to complain left and right about its not fair that he didn't get a raise to when I asked him is it fair that I have over a year more seniority on you, haul the same freight, work from the same barn and have the same start time but make 1.50 less an hour he had no answer.

    You were caught in that pay freeze at the worst possible time like many others....We have a very high percentage of drivers stuck at that 18hr range...Thats why this company is appealing to investors....in the LTL business thats dirt cheap brothers

    As long as Vitran Logistics keeps posting a profit to keep us afloat, we will be just fine
