    Well, you'll probably have to get hired by Vitran to get them. The buyout usually means, you'll retain your current wages and benefits for quite some time. Vitran isn't going to go broke giving everyone raises right off the bat. Heck, having already worked for Vitran myself, you guys might make more than Vitran drivers!!! The pay sucked when I was there. Well, for that matter so did the equipment, the management, the morale and the operation (especially linehaul op's!) I had to leave after only 9 months, it was depressing and the worst job I ever had. And there are 3 other former Vitran drivers at my Con-Way terminal too.
    But hey, good luck...
