    That's what you get for trying to tightrope walk around Big Dave's hat band.

    We are doing volunteers for now. When they don't get enough volunteers for the day they start the rotation.

    The thing I found interesting is the straight truck drivers aren't included in any rotation that may begin.

    We were told those straight drivers would be first off when it got slow

    I would say let's get IBT voted in, but they can't even keep their line drivers working over PT

    It was asked specifically in our IQ meeting and we were told they would not be included.

    I'm not sure about that considering the amount of guys around here who drink the Kool-Aid.

    We are rotating in RAL but it's not moving fast. I rotated about two weeks ago and it doesn't look like I'll rotate for a few more weeks.

    We've got handfuls sent to nearby terminals and on average 3 to 4 a day rotating. Two to three are on call daily. We actually had over 8 on one day this week on rotation.
