....kid has like 4 bangers since January. Can they pull him off the road?
I have seen a driver have 6 in a 9 month period.
Six Tier 3s in 9 months?
My bad. His were not tier 3s.
If the tier 3s did not do a great deal of property damage, I could see someone having many and still not be pulled from driving.
We had one in the district today and the guy got fired.
We had a guy get canned a couple of months back forgetting into two accidents one tier 3 and that another one a week later he didn't report...
If it was not serious ( as defined in the contract), I doubt the termination will stand. Unless he was not a permanent full time seniority driver.
Use to be three accidents in a one year period and you were done.
Not reporting got him fired, no doubt.
Used to cracking a mirror on a limb wasn't an accident also.
9 month period. And 3 small scratches or busted mirrors on tree branches etc. would not get you permanently fired unless your BA is inept, even if they counted them as avoidable accidents. Report all accidents, don't fall victim to the idea of 3 and your out...so I won't report. Non-reporting is the easiest way out the door.
Was it 9 months? You maybe right I thought it was a year.
Fired or taken out of service?
It is standard procedure to take a driver out of service while the company investigates a Tier 3.
To the OP----in my center if you have 3 Tier 3's within a year they create a 22.3 for you.
lately, they have been pulling drivers out of service for all accidents, have seen at least 3 drivers in the last 6 months pulled for tier 1's
Only takes one tier 4.
