Here in Earth City our wonderful management has informed the union that they have decided to change the current accident policy to a no tolerance policy. I am sure the regular policy is the same at most hubs and centers. 3 at fault accidents in a year and you are fired. Now they have decided that if we have one then we are gone. Although they seem to use it on case by case basis. Our local has basically told us to not have any accidents. They decided to make an example out of a 22 year driver, 20 of those being safe driving. He forgot to set his brake and his tractor rolled into another truck. We all know that a roll away is one of the biggest cardinal sins at this company. Well he was fired and somehow they made it stick. He never got his job back. To make a long story short, they have got everyone here so nervous about doing something wrong that they are screwing up. Drivers have said that they will not be coming in this winter when it snows because of what may happen if they have an accident. We had a driver just get his job back after getting fired for hitting another tractor in the yard, and going thorugh a month or so of hearings and other things to get his job back. He started work on day and was ready to take off, when he dropped his pen. He bent over to get it and let his foot off the brake accidently and rolled into the tractor parked in front of him. They fired him and charged him with a roll away even though he was in the tractor. They finally changed their decision and classified it as a runaway. Anytime you have an acident because you are not in control of your vehicle you will be charged with a runaway. We asked if that means when it snows this winter and someone loses control on slick roads if they will be charged with a runaway and lose their job. They said yes. Transportation manager called up an extended center driver because he has hit 3 dear in the last year or so. He is basically blaming him for it. He travels a dark US highway everynight. He has told him to quit using his cruise control because it slows your reaction. This guy should just go back to the air department where he came from.
