    I see no difference. Equipment is getting older. Top pay unchanged, cost of benifits going up and still bleeding drivers

    Maybe they can give a raise now to compensate the insurance increase.

    I doubt a raise is in the future. Dental ins was dropped at beginning of 2014. Vision never really amounted to much, I've done better with store specials. Cancelling ins for retires over 65, I was thinking that was going to happen anyway, but it also takes away life ins

    I've often wondered why Wilson is slow to expand? When was the past new terminal opened.. Not saying it a bad thing, just wondering...

    Baltimore replaced Newington, they have not reported a profit for several years( ask the employees No raise in 10 yrs) so, if you have no money there is no expanding

    I understand... I was just wondering, that they come so close to the Big Muddy over here and never crossed it yet..

    One of first one's to jump ship?

    Roadway bought New Penn (Arnold Industries) in 2001. The Yellow/Roadway purchase/merger was in 2003. That is when the crap hit the fan."

    Gast replaced O'Kane.

    Gast left in 2014.

    Why would you say that he was one of the first to jump ship?

    Chicago is probably the newest one, that actually expanded coverage area

    They interline with a Chicago trucking company but do not own a terminal of any kind there. They relay loads up from Nash and meet the other company.
