    I don't know Billy Never met the man. But, based on that picture, I think it has nothing to do with labor relations. I think it is all about a new experemental program called 'exercise'. Could be wrong, but the picture fits for a new weight watchers commercial. von.

And with an image like that, he also needs to take a dock big to supplement his mowing. Give him 5 years of weight watchers, & mowing, & he will be ready for those floor loads. von.

    Do anybody no if OD lays p&d drivers off when it gets slow in the winter time or do they try to spread work around to keep everybody busy. Im at big E now and OD would much closer for my drive and also it seems like OD is the place to be if you like ltl work. Only been at E for almost two years so I wouldn't be losing that much.

    In our area, there's never been a layoff due to weather. Fact is the wild board is busy, covering the bid drivers when we have to layover due to weather. Also they run bag runs east during the winter. We can't pull triples so if there's freight, the wild board is running.

    Yes. It's long day's or nights, but the money is better. You start off on the extra board, depending where you're at you might be out for a few day's. Our terminal you cover runs and extra work. Nice tractors. Good people

    OD pays the best out of any trucking company out here. Everyone wants to work here. Why do foodservice when you can do the equivalent of sitting on the couch watching tv (linehaul) for 110k a year?

    Not so, about every one wants to work here.
    Wong nor BRG would ever give up their seat on the Hotel, even with the chore of cutting HATS grass 15% of the time.

    No thanks. You have to drive worst than a fxg driver to be a carhauler. They sure aren't pros like back in the days when the union carriers ruled that industry. Smh at all carhaulers. Worst drivers on the planet.
