interstate last week in our blizzard of '09" for 13 hours. He started at 2:45am on Thursday morning(Christmas Eve) and got back to the hub at 4:15am Friday morning(Christmas morning). Interstate was closed and management couldn't get out there to get him. He didn't have a cellphone charger and his phone went dead Thursday evening......Talking to him it was the most memorable and miserable day of his 30 year career......Worked a total of 26 hrs and 15 minutes. My question is how will he be paid for the time worked with the current DOT regulations and so forth? 8 hrs staight time and 16 OT??????? Just curious.
