    regarding the tentative agreement between YRCW & the union, is there any language in the proposed contract re cameras in the cab. as we see ABF will be outfitting their trucks with cameras in the cab. the workers voted for this lunacy in their last contract. not sure what they we're thinking when they agreed to this but whatever, i want to know if YRCW has asked for this. if so they'll definitely get a NO vote from me. you have $ to spend on electronic tracking but not on adequate equipment, salaries to attract both drivers & supervision, etc, etc.....someone with info please. thanks

    No inward facing cameras in any vehicle.

    . Use of Video Cameras for Discipline and Discharge
    The Employer may not use video cameras to discipline or discharge an employee for reasons other than theft of property, violence, or dishonesty or falsification of documents. If the information on the video tape is to be used to discipline or discharge an employee, the Employer must provide the Local Union, prior to the hearing, an opportunity to review the video tape used by the Employer to support the discipline or discharge. Where a Supplement imposes more restrictive conditions upon use of video cameras for discipline or discharge, such restrictions shall prevail.
    The Employer shall not install or use video cameras in areas of the Employer’s premises that violate the employee’s right to privacy such as in bathrooms or places where employees change clothing or provide drug or alcohol testing specimens.

    The Employer shall not install any inward facing video cameras/recorders in any vehicles. “Onboard” cameras may not be used for disciplinary purposes under any circumstances.

    Thanks for the info on this. Any guy who votes for a camera in their truck, regardless of how many pennies the company throws at him to get their way, should be drug tested ASAP
