i'd like to get the input of some drivers from other areas regarding being on-call. at my hub, i've been on the qualified list for nearly 10 yrs. there were a couple of times that i was able to pick up vacated bids for a month or two, but mostly just week-to-week coverage of vacations and drivers off on disability or comp and a lot of weeks on-call. when on-call, we are required to answer WHENEVER they call, or return the call within 15 minutes or face disciplinary action (warning letters>suspensions) and be bumped to the bottom of the qualified list for that day. there are times that they will call 5 hrs into your 10 hrs off, and there are times that they will call 23 hrs after you've been available. when you answer, you must take a job. they are supposed to offer all of the work known to them at that time, but rarely do. most often it's "get here as soon as you can". i'm told that other hubs offer their on-call drivers the opportunity to "pass" a limited number of times and get called back later. also was told some other hubs do not even have feeder drivers on-call, they are assigned a start time for the week, and jockey in the yard until something on-road becomes available. just curious to get the opinions of members here on how this is handled in their hubs. thanks!
