    You're wrong on this one Overnite. I would never leave a yard without doing a complete pre-trip. Regardless of who hooked my set.:1036316054:

    I was talking to a UPS driver and he told me that diad is your best friend. Learn how to use it to your benefit. I'm a line driver so I don't deal with them. But he told me there are codes to put in for everything. If you don't do it for every delay they will come to you for stealing company time. So if you are stuck in the yard for any reason there is a code to put yourself under. Of course you probably already know this but some might not.:1036316054:

    It's really to bad we are taking this forum and turning it into a CB Rambo board. We are losing all our creditability if we don't stop and start talking about real company issues. I think this is what Jeff's vision of the truckingboards is. A place where company driver of various companies can come together and learn about each other and what is going on in our world. It's OK to have fun. But don't we all get enough tearing down at work. Let's let this be a place where we can come for help and advise.
    Not a CB Rambo place that drivers will turn off like they do their radios.:1036316054:

    AP, Correct me if I'm wrong but I heard that a shop steward has to fight for your job just as hard even if you are in the wrong. Is that true. If so I don't want that job. Al through if that was the case I just I would try???

    Everything I have read or been told is the union has nothing to do with rules.

    The company can come up with whatever rules it wants as long as it doesn't violate the contract.

    Skeeter, are you trying to get your post count up?

    all you are doing is validating my opinion that we need a union contract to deal with this new regime. Period! And that is all I have to say about that! Elvis out....
