    you can't run a crew any cheaper than RL is doing right now. No overtime, no 401k match, no sick/personal personal days. Really, there is no other option under these circumstances other than to make money. If they are not, then shame on them for not removing the dumb a$$ that is in charge of all this nonsense. Quit taking from the people who are actually making the company money. Pretty soon they will leave for your competitors. Let's see the office and management run a 11 to 14 hr day with no breaks deliver 15 to 20 stops a day and see how far that goes. Right.

    Not to mention the "new" Internationals we have sporting stylish Dayton wheels. I wonder if they put any thought in at least trying to keep similar makes and models at one terminal.

    New trucks? Why, when you can get a new engine in a two million mile truck. Heck its good for another ten years. Just imagine the chaos if they did buy new trucks. How would they assign them? Whoever brings the best cookies or buys lunch for the TM everyday. It could get pretty ugly!

    I have been a city driver in the NE for 6+ years and i have been treated well, i have worked at worse places . Speaking from experience, "the grass is not always greener on the other side ".

    Some employee's by dumb luck didn't use any of their days, because they were saving them to use them around the holidays, and they received no compensation whatsoever. This was just plain wrong.

    What R&L should do, is to cut a check to these employee's who didn't use their days. This would be te right thing to do, and would show some good will on R&L's part.

    As many of you in Wilmington may know, you have a lot of pissed off employee's because the way we have been treated over the last couple of years. Take-Take-Take-Do the right thing, and pay these men and women for the days you took from them.

    The increased productivity you see will be amazing.

    The way drivers are treated on a local level is not the point of the discussion.The point is the company is using the economy as an excuse to withhold cost of living increases for the last 2 years as well as taking away your personal days and your 401k match and all while making a profit through the entire economic downturn.Also just because its a rosy picture where you are doesn't mean that it isn't hard for others out there.I know a lot of people on the boards have complained about having to do trailer swaps for a flat linehaul rate after they have done their P&D work for the day even though those swaps are city work.Im glad that your experiance has been good and for the most part so has mine but its also clear you haven't ended up on the bad side of sponge bob yet either.

    Richard Herbert This isn't my forum and I don't know why I even care but I have to call you out. With the threads you started it almost seems like your intentions are to start rumors and hurt R+L.
    'UPS Freight buying R&L Carriers.'
    and
    'Its slowing down...Gonna get bad.........'

    Here you said,
    "Al R&L is to me now is a paycheck, and I am just staying long enough to get a job elsewhere."
    BUT, on the thread 'New equipment orders' you said,
    "I was actually considering going to work at R&L until I found out that the former president of Holland, B Zimmerman is running R&L..I would never work for this "IDIOT" ever again.Glad I found this out before taking the job. This guy is truly a piece of crap. No wonder everyone there hates there job."
    So which is it Richard, do you actually work for R+L or do you just pretend to as you start hateful rumors? This is exactly the reason I left this forum last year. Just pathetic.
