CA Drivers allowed state assured rest breaks.
I'm consistently amazed that company's,supervisors,dispatchers think we shouldn't be allowed,paid for lunches,breaks like everyone one else. Penske comparing us to Airline Pilots?,really if that's what you believe how about compensating us accordingly?,with the increasing shortage of qualified drivers we will be pushed harder,farther and run our clocks out consistently,there will be an uptick in accidents and more devastating ones like we've seen lately.
Drivers allowed state-assured rest breaks in California, court says | Overdrive - Owner Operators Trucking Magazine
Three drivers for Penske Logistics brought the class-action suit against the carrier in 2008, and the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals’ decision this week could be the final stop, barring a U.S. Supreme Court decision to hear the case.
California law requires employers to give employees a paid 30-minute meal break for every five hours on the clock and paid 10 minute breaks for every four hours on the clock.
Penske had argued given the structure of driving jobs, it was exempt under the Federal Aviation Administration Authorization Act of 1994, which it said preempts state law.
