    Default Act of god called!

    Act of god called here in the northeast.Some of us showed up at our start times and went out on our runs only to be called back in two hours later because the state called for a truck ban on the interstate.Most likely won't reopen untill
    Wensday.It's going to be a cluster for sure!

    Act of God means what? You have to use your sick days personal days or vacation days? I remember a snow storm act of God back a couple decades back..I never got back to the terminal that night and never got paid. God told them not to pay me

    You should have filed a grievance ..We had a guy get stuck on I-84 for over thirty hours and got paid for all time including penalty time for a Saturday.. Said it was the biggest check he got ..And it was before the 15% charity giveback..

    I suspect bean wasn't in favor with the union or shop steward considering he didn't get paid.
    Big union man !

    It wasn't just me, It was declared an act of God..union agreed. We got paid the first 8 hours on the clock at straight time, they wouldn't pay the OT when they learned we were in a diner all night a half mi from the terminal. A jackknifed tractor trailer blocked the road. New Penn execs need to wise up

    Why would you say New Penn execs need to wise up..Maybe you could explain yourself a little better..If it is about the guy I mentioned,he wasn't in a stinken diner with heat he was in a Newpenn tractor that doesn't run more that three or four minutes before shutting down..Oh by the way it was the dispatcher that sent him in to harms way..

    We went in at 8 am punched out at 1130 so the 8 hour guarantee applies.

    I didn't mean to imply the driver shouldn't have been paid. I've been paid for long delays..almost froze to death when the pos tractor froze up. They don't pay on act of God declarations. Was it declared an act of God?

    I don't think it had anything to do with a Act of God because I believe it was a Friday and the storm hit Friday afternoon..The snow came down like a blanket like two to three inches an hour..A few trucks jacked on Stormville mountain and that was the end of it .I-84 was closed for almost 24 hours before they could get the plows in to clear the highway..He didn't get back to the term till around 2 the following afternoon..even made the front page of the Poughkeepsie Journal..
