    I don't know all the ends and outs but I will say many of the in between stops were eliminated Tucumcari, NM was completely eliminated, all drivers laid off, Green river Utah which was the in between Albuquerque and SLC eliminated, Kingman, AZ eliminated and drivers now drive from Albuquerque all the way to Needles, CA now. And extra board drivers are now sent out all over the west and out 3-4 days at a time. Husband said he has not seen many outside company trucks. It looks like there is just no work.

    We have sign in and out sheets at 042 Carlisle Pa. that the dispatchers make the scumbags sign in and out on. Also we receive monthly purchase transportation reports from the BA to post so the road drivers can check for run arounds. The company has been burned on multiple occasions for dispatching purchase trans. when we have drivers available. Tell the stewards and your BA to get in the companies ass to start keeping closer watch on things.

    Things seem to be finally picking up and we hope it stays that way for a while. Sure isn't the same company it used to be.

    The purchase transportation reports are sent to the locals from the IBT. The locals should be posting the PT reports. We (042 Carlisle Pa.) have drivers that file just about every month on a run around and get paid for it. Ask your business agents where the reports are and why they are not being posted.
