    New class of drivers.They get 40 by combo of driving and PT inside work.Employees would be paid the lower 22.3 rate.DT will fill us in I am sure,With a big vote yes smile

    My concern is this,as drivers retire,quit etc,will they be replaced by the lower classification?

    Who is going to do 30 under present, and even more difficult future conditions?

    The company wants to work seven days a week. Most drivers that have been here a while, don’t want to work weekends. I don’t have an answer, but of course it’s a possibility. At least 22.3 pays into the pension. But it is kind of two tiered. Not by a ton, but lower none the less. How would you suggest staffing fornweekend work?

    Some get injured. Some just want the eight hour day that comes with it.

    Would anyone here, who has been in the trenches, recommend this job to friends or family?

    F* that. If in coming to work, pay me. And if you are a gut with little seniority , you ainta making Jack crap in a 22.3 job.

    Is that a 22.3 job or a 22.2?

    22.2's are the ones that pay driver's rate. Not many of those left.
