    78% wanting some kind of bid reform so far. That's quite a big majority.
    Thank you to all who have voted, the poll is still open if you've not had a chance to get in.

    Ok thanks, as far as I know it's still open. I'm just going on the fact that votes still hittin. If you got a way to check it then it might be a good idea.
    Maybe there is a automatic alert that tells all that poll is closed? I don't know how that works.

    Bidding

    I would like to see all bidding being done by total length of service with the company, that way there is no confusion. it would be easy for the company and us

    That'd make entirely too much sense... at least by catagory. I don't think a city guy that was afraid to run the road to earn road rights should be able to take a 600 mile turn from a guy that put in years sleeping in filthy bunk rooms.

    it should be length of service within their classification. On the west side. you can jump from class to class{ (city to LH) or viceversa} but you depend on length of service within that class. We only have LH, EB, and teams-- no separate hub run bids. As a night driver: your choices are dedicated line haul runs, dedicated hub runs, or extra board. You only need to change class to go team or city and thats ONLY if there are openings. New runs are a trickle bid. Give up a run and you go to the bottom of extra board. If your run is canceled, you go to top of extra board. Bidding is once a year unless there are major changes affecting over 50 percent of the board, then bidding is done with the changes

    Does anyone know when we are suppose to receive the "poll sheets" that Junior is getting to the terminals for the Estes East bidding once a year? Haven't heard no more about it.

    Welcome to the boards rockwyld...:wavey: It's good to hear from one of our guys from the west side!

    Thanks for the info on your bidding process out there. As you can tell we are working on reforming the bid system
    in the east right now and the way you described it above IMO would work great for us over here also.
    Thanks for your input bro.....:thumbsup:

    Nothing here at my barn yet Starko. I figure it'll be a few more weeks 'cause in JR's last memo he said they will pass them out "later on in the year".

    :biglaugh: Yea I think that happens at my house sometimes too.
    I ran a 010 bid for years and that used to be were I got most of my info.
    Charlie O was good about posting stuff out there.
    But I gotta admit our TM has gotten alot better in the past couple of years about it.

    If your bid is canceled for the day you go to the top of EB only if you can be back in time to run your bid the next night your bid is due out. If your bid is canceled permanently then you can bump anyone below you off there bid
