    Since I don’t have access to policies and procedures, I thought it was outside carriers, dock workers, class b drivers, then cdl drivers last?

    Ole man , this was the order of layoff told to you by management? Drivers first for savings?

    Or , was this the order for volunteers accepting a voluntary layoff?

    Same. Dock workers come and go daily. Their is no effort in retaining workers.

    I believe this company is in financial trouble and management is in panic mode grasping for straws.

    Are you an FAC? ( breakbulk - super large )

    To be clear , I've been curious what the undisclosed ( hidden plan ) has been for dockworkers being pushed so hard. To the point of not making sense unless there was an ulterior motive.

    I've also wondered with XPO taking over what place service rank ( seniority ) would have under their ownership. Slowly , these things have been answered , and it's not beneficial to drivers.

    A whole lot of nothing here. Good luck everybody. We are getting close to the ugly part.

    No fac, a dark terminal. I believe there are other motives, as for drivers, we are the illegitimate bastards of the company, just here trying to rip it off at every turn.
