    You are the kind of drivers they are looking for... Not an insult just stating a fact... Conway is making enough to pay a pension and better medical. Don't be deceived...

    You strike me as a man of good character....You say what you mean and mean what you say....Wasn't it Ronald Reagan that said that? You appear to have courage without pugnacity.

    Point taken. i thought that seemed awful low.

    It's amusing, however, that before all you teamsters showed up the big news here was how great OD was and how so many guys were jumping ship to join them.

    You are right! Conway has been lucky to have a work force that stands....er lays down quietly while they continue to "enhance" or find portions of our compensation unsustainable.
    We have been programed in the non-union culture and saturated with fear.
    Conway has been lucky, till now.

    This is the whole reason for the so-called "driver shortage" that we have now.

    There isn't a shortage of drivers at all. There IS however, a shortage of good qualified drivers who are willing to put up with the BS and low pay that these companies dish out.

    Just like everything else in life, you get what you pay for.

    OD treats their drivers great and they have that aspect of the business covered. Now they need to get the pay and insurance package fixed.

    Dr Seuss said it. Same thing.
    But I would bet my big pension he was far from the first.

    Time is money.
    Delay is time.
    YOU give THEM free money if you don't get full hourly rate.

    I'm city so I'm out of my realm even with union rates. But mileage pay and not being paid every minute irks me.
    Ain't too many customers we go to with labor who stays in the building for free. Hourly rate makes more sense and is safer for the public imo.

    Mileage sucks in snow and ice as one example....Sometimes that run can take almost twice as long. I prefer an hourly rate.

    If the corporation were really committed to their core values (SAFETY), L/H would pay by the hour. But to remain consistent with current comp differences, should they have to pay at a higher rate then city.
    Just to throw a number out there, let's say the L/H driver is currently earning 20% more per hour while driving. Paying for pretrips and paper work would probably not make up that 20%.

    I did go back through some of your posts to see if I was dealing with a past member here and elsewhere. Clipart. Anti-union comments. Agitation at Obama and Sharpton and Jackson. Instigation. All.traits of his. I don't think you're him though.
    If you slip up and reveal that you hang out at Connecticut casinos or worked at roadway or that you have an addiction to cheap foreign-made chocolate bars....be fairwarned, you will be instigated by some old acquaintances, civilly of course.

    Very similar to a user named bean and management joe i think...but not him.LOL.

    I'll do my best not to slip up. I'd hate to be "found out". That would devastate me.

    On a side not, does anyone know how to get gravy stains out of a gray shirt? OOPS, perhaps I've said too much...
