    jevic is closing monday

    sponsored links
    Ist let me say that this may be the end of Jevic, but its not the end of the world. You guys will land on your feet. I went through 2 closings & looking back on what seemed like disasters were really only bumps in the road.
    The Jevic drivers that I know are all really good guys & I am sure that they won't have any problems finding work.....Keep the faith.

    Just for your information. When USF shut down Red Star a few drivers went in for a couple of days & helped out by delivering some of the freight left in the system........While some other drivers hired a lawyer & filed a Class Action WARN Act lawsuit......When the suit was settled the money earned by the drivers that worked after the shutdown was deducted from the amount of their settlement checks. They worked for free.

    Drivers, get out of there before the last shoe drops. I went through this nightmare at Burlington Motor Carriers...a terminal was closed here, a drop-yard sold there..."oh all is well, we're just realigning some operations" is what we heard from the suits. Sure enough, roll into the main barn one day and it's locked up tighter than a drum. No paychecks, no severance, no nothing...turns out they were just stringing us along while they ran up expense accounts and bilked and looted what remained of the company. Left a whole bunch of hard-working folks holding the bag. Even stiffed Freightliner for over $500k.

    lyion here again
    ' id hire another lawyer and sue the pants off that company ,once again that;s typical of a big company ,screw the drivers and keep there money that's the way they think and with that said its time for the government to step in and screw the company s big time .seize the back accounts and give it all to the drivers for putting up with all the bull s... we all haft to put up with these con art is company's always trying and doing a screwed up job ,take money from the drivers they all do it .i I've been in the trucking business since 1983 never seen a single company give all the money that the drivers supposeable made they will take a little here a little there so you don't no it . you ask them how much the load pays and they will say one thing then when you get your pay check its a different amount .Ive worked hard in the trucking industry as a driver with a lot of company's some don't mess with your money all the time but they will and do some time that's they way it is in the real world. the time to watch your money I've noticed is when they are heaving problems buying new equipment are have a law suit against them
    and now that the price of fuel has gone threw the roof there be doing more fishing for every dollar they can from the drivers .so watch your money really careful cause there be nibbling at your pay check for sure .like I've said even the company's i worked for that i liked do it some time its the way trucking company do business .there's only way Ive fount to completely get all your money coming to you is to tell them that you have a fax machine you carry with you on the road and what you wont to say to them if your a least on owner op is that when they get a load for you, have them fax the amount the load pays to the truck, not to the company where the loads going to how many miles its subpose to be,and for time of delivery .and have this all on paper and at the top have the company's letter head this insures this is coming from them and is not made up .with this you will have solid proof of what you are to make for those who are least on to them .when there is a problem and they say oh no it paid some thing different you flash the faxed load sheet at them and they cant dispute it they were the ones who told you what the load pays in writing .i was given this information from a lawyer i had to use when i was leased on to a company that screwed me in my settlement check .i wont work for a company that wont agree with this its a means of keeping track of your loads and money that oded to you when you are under contract with them it just good business sense to to do it and its a tool in business .if they wont pay take them to court and show this to the judge and he will see on paper that the company told you this was to be the amount you were to be payed for each and every trip load .walk away if any company wont agree to this .and in the contract have it so they no in advance you will wait to get this info before you ever move the truck don't move till you receive it . there try to tell you they will send it to you later because there to busy that wont do at all had settlement checks come to me saying i had negative pay check because the fuel i had to get was higher than the load payed because they wouldn't give me a pro number ands so i had to use the last trips pro numer for fuel this is a way the company screwed me being young and my first time as a owner in the business .don't let it happen to you .
    sorry this was long but good intentions for all drivers.lyion

    I have a feeling that the owners of Jevic have something up their sleeves to get around the WARN Act. I guess that we will find out tomorrow. Good luck to all the hardworking employees at Jevic, "keep the faith"
