    Default ABF pay

    I Worked 3 years for ABF in the past. I got my CDL from ABF but i was on layoff for so long i had to move to a new state where my family was because i couldn't afford to live where i was any more. my last day of work was in june of 2010. I have just had my interview today for the Terminal here in Ark. What i want to know is what the casual rate is and what % of scale will i be at when/if i get hired full time. I am going for the same position i was before. Dock worker/city driver. Thanks in advance for reply's

    CDL-qualified employees hired into driving positions who are not currently on the seniority list at an NMFA carrier and who for two (2) or more years regularly performed CDL-required driving work for a commonly-owned NMFA carrier shall be compensated at 90% of the full contract rate of pay for a period of one (1) year and go to the full contractual rate thereafter, provided they have not had a break in service in excess of three (3) years.
    There is more language concerning this in the NMFA other that what I quoted above.

    I would start looking on page 4 at

    No, i only talked to the OM for 1 min. he had a meeting to go to and then i filled out a forum and answered a few questions with a women. the whole interview was only a few mins. They said they were having trouble with finding people to Hire. the OM seemed happy he didnt have to train me, he said "so i can just give you a PDA and let you go right"? and i smiled and said yes.
    I worked at SLC 149 now tryn to get on at 004. i worked at roadway before but gotta say i really liked ABF. im just gonna have to drive 70 miles each way. Not gonna be fun for the first few years when im a 10 with a long drive. but i needed to do this for my family. Times are tough for small businesses and mine is one that is having a hard time.

    Thanks Jimmy for the reply.

    They will IMO start you out as a new hire which the rate is going to be I believe 75%. Now I see where Jimmy has posted something here about for past NMFA employee the starting rate will be 90%. If it was me I would check into all of this with the union BA for your region and then I would go to work for the company and take the pay that they pay you until you get on the senority board and the if you in facxt should be getting the 90% file for the diference in pay that you are getting. If you start out and the pay is different then what the union advised you on ask the terminal manager if your pay scale is right and get his answer as this is something you want to document for later filing if needed. But get on the senority list first that way you have them in your hand instead of them not working you again for questioning the pay and filing right aways. Good Luck and welcome to the TOL site.
