    How many customers did our great leaders lose this week?

    I heard we're auctioning of our services on the 3PL auction block.
    Whoever pays the customer the most money to haul their freight gets to haul it.....we'll be getting alot of freight I bet.

    Seems all they care about is the "Bill count" they don't understand 50 low paying bills stuffed into a trailer causing freight claims is a loss. Can anyone tell us what you get if you have 20 good paying bills loaded properly into a trailer and delivered claim free ?

    PROFIT !!!

    Slave I agree that peddle runs shouldn't be on 53' trailers with freight decked. There are some areas where that may be ok. But what is the solution at this point? If we could hire more drivers it would lighten the load on everyone.You just go out and do what you can, if a driver has a stop that they feel it is unsafe to deliver on a larger trailer, call dispatch and let them know. And move on to the next stop. It's not a job worth worrying yourself to death over.

    Serving wealthy investors and banks isn't a job worth worrying to death over either.
    Like those who's dumb idea it was to use these things in the northeast since they became used more since thhe 80's.
    Somebody's worried about it else they wouldn't be here.

    And somebody worries about serving them in 2007 or so when they destroyed the payrate in the industry so we couldn't find anybody willing to do the job anymore. Right at a time when all drivers were gonna be worth something due to economy and shortage of drivers...the banks moved in and controlled the whole industry through YRC.
    And if we voted no and shut them down....they'd have forced it on the nonunion drivers anyways.

    Right now it seems they don't really want to keep the drivers they have. As we rebid for this new plan. They have now decided that they would like to cut bids in the city which drivers chose to bid on and force them onto road bids which were not filled......not to please drivers but to please themselves by substituting nonCDL guys for them drivers bids which involve alot of dockwork. Those forced guys will most likely sit home nights that the nonCDL guys work through their city bid hours. Sitting home may cause them to quit. They don't care about drivers Driver shortage or not....they want 53's......and that is the main problem imo. And do the customers who want them even pay? Or do we pay those customers to haul their freight?

    Reading is not a happy place. 3 supervisors and 3 office workers canned this week.
    They didn't need that many supervisors here when we had all the freight. 8 and skate for most. Not much more. All CDL drivers have bids. Or fill road slots. The only xtra board is NONCDL and they aren't working every day.

    When a company pretty much takes $200-$400 away from most drivers in the place, does it sound like they're trying to keep drivers?
    I don't wanna here the driver shortage excuse anymore. It's looking like a lie to me.

    2 outbound supervisors and one which was outbound and ended in dispatch. They were all the newest except the new TM is newer. He's still here. I think one was a tape measure job to make stuff fit. That job never should've existed imo. Precise measurements to stuff a trailer and load bars and 53's are the opposite of what seemed to make NP good imo. Made everything take to long and damages increase. Time seemed important.....

    Let's see....Reading.

    About a year ago, in July and August...things got real busy. It's always busy here till last week.
    Anyways last year they tried to bring cartage here. They did for a few weeks.
    They overused casuals as usual.
    Dock guys with no CDL and no intention of getting one.
    We had no nonCDL FT guys here then.
    All the same payrate. All the same qualifications.
    Every year or so we have to check to see their days and if they are close to preferred status to make sure they aren't contractually overused. The company nor union wanted FT guys who were not CDL. The company had more flexibility and we were all equal.
    The casuals always got really close, a few of them
    Well we were busy and Boston had a huge backup. And our top casuals were called in to bail them out. They went up there a couple weeks and upon checking their days....that is the week 3 of them hit preferred status.
    They became FT. With no CDL.
    The MOU seems to have made it more appealing to the company. Formerly, NONCDL guys were paid rates similar to drivers.
    The MOU changed that. Soon they put about 10 on without even counting there days.

    Now with the new COO bids they don't even have a city extra board. All drivers hold city bids or road slots. The only on-call guys in the city are NONCDL or guys unable to drive due to medical CDL issues.
    We do not allow the NONCDL guys to be called in before CDL guys here. They have their own board and aren't called before CDL guys.
    Now NPME wants to force our bottom 5 city bid guys onto the road. Our road board is an extra board. Meaning they may sit home on nights that NONCDL guys under them work.
    Rumor has it that 10 road guys sat home last night....yet all NONCDL guys worked...probably OT too.
    We did have a day with over 900 bills this week. That's like normal too us.
