    $21 an hour? P&D top scale is $27.30 OT after 40. Linehaul is .674 cpm. Our annual cost of living raise is next month.

    That’s what I thought. Thanks. There should be a sticky at the top of each thread with updated pay scale. So you guys should get $1+

    I'll make a prediction based on zero inside information: $28.10 and 69.4 cpm.

    Last year both increased by over 4%, but it won't be as much this time. My guess is based on roughly 3%.

    A few city guys at my barn have been bragging lately about hitting 40 hours on Thursday. On Friday they'll work as long as it takes to get it all done. Later in the summer those same guys will be complaining about how many hours they have to work. It happens every year.

    Terminal managers obviously try to limit OT by maintaining decent staffing levels, but they don't want so many drivers that everybody suffers during the winter. Dayton doesn't seem to believe in seasonal layoffs, so during slow periods they put out a signup sheet for days off awarded by seniority (CC days). There always seem to be enough takers that everyone else gets plenty of hours. We've generally been busy enough during the slow season that I occasionally hear drivers complain about a lack of CC days or that they never fall to where those drivers are on the seniority board.

    The bottom line is that you might not get a ton of OT in the winter, but you'll definitely get plenty in the summertime.

    My "secretary" (the computer lady's voice on the Qualcomm) greets me upon arrival and tells me what door to put my trailer in, or to put it in the yard. At some smaller terminals they'll give me my door and also my hook, so I can drop, hook then run in to get my manifest on the way out. It's pretty slick.
