Really, which conference were you in?
As much as it pains me to agree with you , on this issue I do.
See, that wasn't so bad now was it?
I did post links, so there can be no confussion...
You posted definitions first. Definitions that, in your words, indicated "splitting hairs", on my part. Like there is no difference between proficient and adequate.
Thanks go out to Mirriam-Webster, for clarifying, correcting, and proving.
I have no problem with PPE. Just don't force me to wear some dirty safety vest and hard hat ten thousand other drivers have worn. Do the right thing and outfit your drivers with the proper equipment. Problem solved.
How do you feel about your drivers privacy? Should they surrender their operators license to every customers security force to gain access?
We have the option. If your run doesn't make you can bump a junior off his (never happens) or take one of the unassigned runs.
As far as following the drivers, we will follow all of them spreading good cheer wherever we go. It's the company not bargaining in good faith, not the drivers. ;)
Operating Engineers local 18 pension fund, I will have to check for sure before I completely commit to that but that is how I understood it.
Confusion only has one "s" and this is the correct spelling of Merriam.....not mirriam.
Maybe you can look at the spelling next time your using an online dictionary.
Being the self-proclaimed king of splitting hairs. I've got to agree there is a difference between being proficient at something and being adequate. Everybody who is proficient is also adequate. Everybody who is adequate is not necessarily proficient.
Ideally, every driver could run every other drivers' route without too much drop off in efficiency. However, if I can bring a guy in who has never run that route before, even with 20 years P&D LTL experience, and he can do that route as well as the guy on it everyday. The guy on it everyday needs reassignment.
Never claimed to be the spelling guy. I'm better at dephinishuns... ;)and more importantly, comprehension. Still, I do struggle to do the best I can...:(
I agree that the company should supply all necessary tools and equipment to do the job. NO minimum wage security guard is getting my dl or any other id with my personal information on it, if a company issued id is not good enough, bring it back.
How does that work for you at DoD contractors or Military Bases during higher stages of alert?
Ya know, that thing looks pretty well funded to me. http://wctpension.org/forms-documents-webcasts/plan-documents/funding-status
The early retirement option... We have no such thing:
The early retirement option...
222lifer seems to have a pretty good plan... Need to look closer at it, but it's not nearing failure, by any stretch.
I don't make the rules, I just follow (most) of them.
Works real well those Military Police have the authority to ask for your DL.
The rent a center lady at the Chevron whse may have a badge but cracker jacks badges don't have any authority.
My TWIC card gets me just about anywhere I want to go.
I was addressing the "if my company issued ID isn't good enough, I'm bringing it back" bravado.
Got no problem bringing it back if the witch at Chevron won,t take my company issued id. Which I did on many occasions ....... Thank you
