    Settlements are expensive. And the driver can afford to wait it out for what to him is a significant amount of money. And then after he gets paid is off driving for someone else. All the sudden, the doctors released him back to work.

    Yes, but way to much for management to understand. That is why they run the place. Trucking supervisors are a lot like a weatherman that goes to college for 4 years to get a degree in weather forecasting. He only has to be right 50% of the time to retain his job.

    I think you may be misunderstanding "management's needs/wants."

    You use a simple anecdote to make 'management' (what does that mean? FOS? FOM? SCM?) seem like they cannot understand a simple problem. Why are trucking supervisors shittier than other supervisors? Maybe you might be the problem? But of course not, in your opinion trucking supervisors only have to be right 50% of the time. Pay no mind how wrong you are whatever the % of the time is (which im sure is 0% of the time.)

    I think your right. You could give drivers a 2 buck and hour raise and they would still bitch about something

    Ok we will start bidding routes. Now all city driver that have a bided route must show up at 8am and are not allowed to punch in till there load is closed. If it's anything like last week linehaul was still coming in at 1030 in the morning. Lets see how long that would last when the ones that bid a route sit in the breakroom for 2 to 3 hrs off the clock
    What you don't get is we do not have cut times you leave when you get all your freight.

    Why would you sit in the drivers room off the clock?

    Don't need him to break he bid a route not a start time so he stays off the clock till his run is done.
    I guess you didn't see the sarcasm in my post. This is what they will do if we bid routes. I said it before we do not have cut time for city routes you leave when you have all your freight.

    If you bid a start time with a route, you come in break trailers til your trailer is full. 2nd man comes in at later time and breaks til his trailer if full going into same area.

    I don't understand why they would do it that way. One or the other- either bid on start times or routes, but not both.

    And what happens if LH is late, and you've got too many people on forklifts because they're all waiting on one or two bills that will close their route? Meanwhile, you've got closed routes sitting and waiting on a start time. That's a really inefficient way to run an LTL outfit- do you always have a bunch of freight sitting on the yard waiting to break because you couldn't get to it the day before?

    That's nonsense,can you name one company that does that to city drivers? There is not any. Who would stay at a place like that? Those are scare tactics used to control free thinkers. There are always volumes or pick ups somewhere to be done.

    I guess you didn't get the sarcasm in this. I said that because that what the company would do what to pick and choose what stop you will do. You are a driver and will take whatever load we give you.

    Maybe we should have cut times. Maybe I shouldn't get to the FAC and check the scanner for my freight and find there are still trailers being loaded for outbound and not even rolling yet.
