Our new Drivers are the key to the future strength that insures our Union lives a long, strong and relevant life tomorrow and years to come. It is imperative that we do all we can today to protect their safety and longevity.  A proven fact: Most new Members are terminated within the first ninety (90) days due to accidents, incidents and unusual occurrences in areas/territories unfamiliar to them or the people they depend on for support.

For this reason and future possibilities, the Union embarks on this experiment with the goal of giving our new Drivers/Members a level playing field for a long, successful and safe driving career.

The Membership must report successes and failures to the President and Vice Presidents in real time in order to determine the outcome of the experiment.

Contractual New Pay - Effective October 1, 2015

Phrase three of journey to "sign-on to sign off" is in effect:

  • stops of more than thirty (30) minutes on any scheduled run will be paid at the minimum non-driving rate, with no duplication of pay.  Currently, we are not being paid at all.
  • minimum non-driving rate increases from $7.50 hourly to $9.00 hourly. This increase applies to sign-on and sign-off rates.
  • new pay will largely impact through schedules with long station stops, long meal stops and long rest stops that are scheduled in the run.
  • check schedule times for accuracy of run times and to ensure pay is timely and accurate.
