    .

    everybody knows about the 10 %, truck drivers talk, just like you here about Ward, YRC, Vitran and so on.
    Nothing is a secret in this industry !!

    You Dreaming if you think we'll be getting the 10% any time soon.
    I would say maybe by next July if at all.
    lets hope i'm wrong

    While some terminals are busy, others are not. I and others have been working to help 07 deal with the overflow, yet 05 is not quite normal. While LAXNE is back to making money, I'd think there is a hole to fill before the mound begins to build. BUT, I still believe LAXNE is a strong, viable, entity that will keep those of us who are in it for the long run employed for quite some time.

    Equipment is beginning to be repaired, that's a great sign. Plus, if things weren't looking up, they wouldn't be spending the $$$ to put us at 07 to move the freight.

    As for the 10%, you guys didn't listen at the meetings. We were told we'd see 5% when everything was back in the black and stable, we were never told we'd see the 10.

    "Drivers talk"..... and talk..... and talk....... Rule #1 to anyone who has been around a bit.... Never listen to linehaul! :-) Sorry guys, no insult meant, but you can't say it aint so!

    We got SLAMMED last night system wide. Apparently we smashed a volume record.

    From what I am told, everything moved. Guys got out a little late this morning but so far it has been pretty smooth. Nice to see the trucks packed full again.

    with your rates you will never make money-I cant believe you have as many posts as you do as most of your employees cant figure out how to turn a computer on.
    you guys are gone-as soon as the next insurance payment comes due...worried about getting the 5 or 10 perc back-stop wh oring your rates. its hilarious you say they are now fixing your trucks are you fre king kidding me-thats part of trucking keeping the tools viable to conduct the business you are in-you are bottom feeders where other compays rejects go. I know some of them...

    We were told we would see the 10% back when things were good, nothing about 5%. I don't think it will be this year. I think they need to wait and see how the rest of the year plays out and the first two quarters of next year. I think the economy is still to unstable to really know the the next year or two will bring.

    Yes it was, but the end of the month happens 12 times a year every year, and we still broke records.

    If we see anything back we'll be lucky, there was nothing in writing about the pay cut. We never had a meeting about it, just that we were under a 10% reduction in pay. Would be nice to get something back, but do not hold your breath waiting for it. I don't believe we will really get back what we lost.

    You're not asking a driver to be "positive" are you? :-)
