    Anyone heard that if corporate request your cell phone records and you decline that it's an automatic 3 day suspension? I'm assuming that this is in the case of an accident..... now I know how to get time off :)

    News to me, but Law Enforcement can do that without my consent in case of accident.

    They'll never get a hold of mine. I knew there was a way to get freebie days off. If law enforcement asks for it they can see it, only if they obtain a warrant first. Averitt doesn't have that power.

    I brought it up a month or so ago about the cameras, didn't truckload get a message this week announcing that they had already been installed in select trucks? This is the heads up that they are coming, just like with the e-log, select trucks then the fleet

    Rumor has it with the shuttle system going to paperless logs- all routes/runs will be planned on a 10 hour clock. That could be approximately a 300 mile per week cut or more to some. You figure a run that pays 660 a night may have to get cut back to 550 depending on swap points. That's not cool to cut the pay when they could have turned the trucks up. They turned up OTL trucks.....

    We were told only runs over 10.5 hours are being restructured.

    I will let you guys know, I have the only 10.5 schedule in Knx. I'm also hearing several rumors of pay raise, vacation and personal days spoken of in a recent meeting with drivers, plus a massive across the board increase in work force. Sounds like a dream come true, we shall see.

    We have not had a shuttle meeting in years at nor, so they have told us nothing. I would think nor and ful runs would be less than 10.5 because of the gridlock of rush hour traffic in the Atl.

    Looking for a new job what would a driver make the first year? How long you stay out? And where would the bottom guy run at?

    I hope that the things CM mention are on the horizon. My two cents is that the company should turn up SHUTTLE trucks and most of the switching of hours and runs wouldn't be necessary. They should ask the other carriers why they turn their trucks up. The fuel cost i bet would be lower than what the pay and benefits for extra employees

    I enjoy having a truck that will run the Texas Speed limit...in some places 85 mph. I don't miss AE at all.
    Keep Calm and truck on....in the slow lane.

    I'm happy for the 20 year guys who get the extra vac time but come on big red, that leaves a lot of frustration in your 19 year and younger associates. Nothing this year for the rest of us
