    He must have a slow fedex truck. Well they are all slow but 95% of them seem to be faster than ours.

    Here is a rumor for you. The p&d drivers from Southern Cali. who voted no for Teamster representation are on suicide watch. Evidently the E Street program is shredding their hours. Imagine that. TE out....

    :biglaugh: I think it's more because they are p&d instead of getting hours cut.

    What's the purpose of time cards for linehaul? I heard we are rebidding. Don't know if there is any truth to it though.

    From what I was told the time cards are for safety meetings and for newer guys who have a couple hrs left to work the dock at the end of the day. Not sure if it's accurate but this is the rumor thread.

    I can see getting paid to nod off and ask stupid questions during safety meetings but working for my money has gone too far
