    For stealing time yes. The problem is with this company is they are no allowed to follow you around on you route to see if you are f-ing off

    It's true. Your TM needs a kick in the ass. They were all on the conference call.

    Yeah Flash, not sure if we're drinkin from the same waterin hole, or if it's a matter of upbringing. But I'll say it again and again, "those of us with this mentality are a dying breed", it's a damn shame.

    vacation picks.
    truck choice.
    start time.
    leave time.
    load choice.

    Seniority gives you choices.......and in the trucking industry, that's about all that you can ask for.

    Your point is a good one that nobody ever talks about.

    Everywhere that I've ever worked, when it got slow and the company could afford to get rid of a few bad employees, that's when management got cocky and tried to thin the herd.

    Some states here in the 48, I believe, actually require ot wages. I don't know about after 8 but more than likely after 40. There will always be this struggle and it's a major issue to those of us in red headed stepchild land we call the south. It needs to be addressed and corrected.

    I've seen one person let go for performance and he was AWFUL, had to put up with him for 3 months which imo was really dumb.

    My state requires it, but there is a transportation exemption which I believe is a federal regulation. They don't have to pay us overtime like they do. They are just being generous. I bet they are required to pay overtime to Upnorth.

    They are. Daily. The law says after 9 hours, Conway pays after 8. They also pay us overtime on linehaul too.

    In what situation are you paid overtime during line haul ops? Are you paid hourly/mileage for your shift or hourly-only for a 12 -14 hour shift or is it something like working more than 8 hrs at one location?

    I don't know. But , there are threads about Canada in the archives that might answer your questions OR you can ask the Canadian drivers.

    PS - I bumped up a relevant thread and asked a similar question. Hope this helps.

He is the Worst Tm we have had in our Terminal since I have been their ! I have heard we have had worse though way way back !

    We get paid both mileage and hourly. Dock, border, breakdown etc is hourly. However, federal law says if you work over 60 hours in a week, they must pay us OT for the hours worked above 60. They do their best to limit us to 60, but most of us go over every week.

    I guess back in the day when con-way was all separate companies they all had different pay scales and different way they paid OT if any. I heard of something like 25 different ways. When Con-way became one company they was no effort to make the system the same across the country. I believe they did nothing because why should I pay OT to a guy in NC when he work over 8hrs a day like I do in the NE so they left it alone. Then as tech got cheaper and boards like this came along were driver from across the system could trade info is when they started the change. As of last year's raise, from what was told to me, there were 5 different pay scales but the way the OT is paid is still the same as is was. This is a very big item and problem Mr. Jacob's has to address and the fact of the matter is that this change will be disliked and liked depending on were you are.

    So, I asked a Swift driver at the truck stop. You know what he said ? I'd be scared if I were you. I'm glad I'm not in your shoes.

    Well, shoot me in the head right now. I thought that I had the " GOOD " job and that " HE " was bad off.

    I am surprised the Swift driver spoke english well enough for you to have a conversation with him.
