    If our pay and benefits were anywhere near industry standard he could be replaced easily with an experienced linehaul driver. However, Vitran knows if they fire him they can only hire another driverof the same quality or less plus the trouble of training.

    The reason OD or FEx or Holland etc will not tolerate this performance is because they plan on making money by being a top notch company not a discount service provider.

    Read vitran's actions not their talk. Action is where the answers are.

    safety ranks first when you talk to the insurance company, investors, and employees........... then when the door opens it is all about butt kissing and productivity.

    Sad but true at this point in time.....But I don't think it will always be that way. Need a few more years to change.

    His name is Kelly...Thats all you get.....And all the senior drivers know who I am......All you gotta do is ask. I won't post anything on here I won't say to their face....Whats the worse thing they can do.....Fire me? Don't do me any favors.....And they don't need to worry that I may sue. The difference between me and many on here is that I have a good set of balls.

    OK. The funniest thing about being down in Dallas for a week is most of the drivers didn't know who I was, they just assumed I was from corp.

    I have question. Why was the trailer even loaded and he given paperwork. Yes he is still an idiot but others seem to be too. Dallas seems to have head up the kazoo disease

    Well the terminal is just like the rest poorly lite. I really dont think any hostler driver at any terminal does a pretrip inspection before putting the trailer to the door. The missing duels were on the right side so he wouldn't have caught it while putting the clalk block down. If there was a red tag on the trailer and it blew off, rotted off or came apart due to weather where does the blame lie? If you really knew the driver that pulled the trailer than you wouldn't be pointing the finger at the terminal.

    Thats what I have been trying to tell everyone....That trailer should have never been loaded....We have new red tags that are tough and have the wire that holds them on. It came in that Friday night and stayed on the yard until Monday when it left. There is no way that trailer was red tagged...That does not excuse the no pre-trip.....Everyone is passing the buck here....The hostler and supervisor dropped the ball...They want to put all the blame on the driver.....He was not the only one that was wrong.....Geezzzzzzz!!!!!! Another prime example of no accountability....It sickens me that several people here get a free pass.....They are not telling the truth about that trailer being red tagged.

    a few years back a tm we had took the red tags off tractor's due to not enough tractors for one week everyday i broke down virs were not in tractor either it was internail motor problem with one lasted about 4 hrs broke down next electrical problem broke down in 2 hrs next day water pump broke down after about 7 hrs then tried to ask me what kind of pre trip i did before i left in the morning next day asked me to get something out of his office and right in plane view were the red tags grabbed them and gave them to him and asked what he was trying to pull he told me i was lucky he was in good mood or was going to write me up for going into office without permission changed his tone when is said lucky for you i made copy's of the red tags that were already in his hand. and said i'll either call or send them to pitt ,never heard a word about it after that. oh yeah brought a roll of tape out side when a headlight was hanging by pice of fiberglass and refused to take tractor he taped the thing and said now it's fixed drive it or go home asked him to sign my vir ripped it up and threw it on the ground and stormed into offfice i took the tractor and the pices of vir with me and that damn light never came loose all day long even when the rain came later that day.wish i knew what kind of tape it was or what brand.truck that day was missing bumper half of it other side was bent in a direction that can't be explained wind shield cracked one wiper that would only go half way and the formentioned taped light the truck looked like it lost a fight with a transformer what a ride that was. one coustomer said he would not even allow me to back into the dock.

    Sadly managers have a different set of rules....They get away with sending that trailer out with no consequences...While the driver is made the total scapegoat.

    It was not me. Another "Professional" Vitran associate. Yes, he did continue to drive his tractor with a flat in excess of 1 and 1/2 weeks. I do not know Greg.
