    I think dockworkers and linehaul drivers should get jump-suits like you see some of the mechanics wear. I don't mean to just exclude city guys but I mean for them to only be worn on the dock.

    That is how most corporations roll. Save money buying the Dickies brand, and lose money while the employees are huddled up around their engine fan trying to warm up.
    :duh:

    I get your point, but I was actually referring to the forklift operators wearing the cheaper clothing, and hovering around the forklift engine heat.

    At our barn, some guys were passed over if their anniversary was too close to when the first batch of uniforms were passed out. Now, Second anniversary, guys are getting uniform orders left and right, jackets too. We just have to submit the order form. Push your personnel guy about it. I don’t see why they wouldn’t let you order more if needed.

    Some of those uniforms must be getting pretty raggedy after 2 years!

    You can override the freightliners, if you're not aware, though it take a some time. Let it idle in neutral until the engine light flashes (the warning for a shut down). Then rev your engine. The engine will idle then without a shut down. I do it all the time for lunch in hot/cold weather and to warm/cool the truck in the morning.

    Can do it at stops as well but you have to wait until you get the warning light which can be annoying.

    Highway units work the same. Doesn’t help when it’s -30 and your trying to keep warm.

    We were told recently at my barn “no new uniforms” unless they are torn badly. One guy busted the zipper in his coat, no new coat. He’s wearing his old Con-way coat!

    Some of the colder climates have trucks that idle indefinitely if it's under 32 F. But as you say, it's not much to be happy about.
