    Lotsa luck getting the motel bill paid for AND in finding another job. You MIGHT even wind up paying your own bus fare back to you home domicile !!!! Company wins again !! Ain't fair, is it ??

    That's kind of jump from not driving safe equipment to not paying for a motel or losing my job. Never had a problem with them not paying my motel bill.

    I think I would rather hit 1 pin and keep the same tractor, I don't want one that some guy smoked 3 packs of ciggs in on the way to the meet. What about needing to keep twin screws where they need them?

    the twins we have been getting assinged in GVL lately are not worth keeping if we needed them. I'd rather spend the 10 minutes in the Georgia scales than to swap tractors.

    Like everyone else, I would hate to lose the meet money. I would not be suprised if the company did it because Saia is looking to cut costs and that would seem to be an easy picking for them. I agree with tired and hungry. I would rather keep the tractor that I know rather than my meet man's tractor and I'm sure he feels the same way. Having said that, I gave up my Sirius radio months ago and listen to CD's that I make at home. I carry a small bag, a lunch kit, and can collect and ready for transfer everything before my meet man can wake up and leave his truck. I find that traveling light makes a lot of worrying go away.

    on the west coast we dont get paid at meets till after 45 min,thats one of the reasons this class action suit is going on...and it probable will end up in court,give up first 15,take lunch,and if your meet shows up at the 45 min mark-still not being paid because your swapping out ,per line haul....bull s*$%

    you get paid a drop and hook at your meet and then hourly 30 minutes after your cut , if applicable, i would rather have a good meet man and drop, hook and go! believe me, i have 2 meets a day!
