    Default New Penn Change Of Operations

    There will be a proposal for a change of ops.
    My Local will be affected. Matter of fact my Local is the only Local of the 4 involved which will be losing any work.
    My question to the other Locals and our IBT reps would be this. Would you want your work moved to another Local with a stroke of the pen and redrawing of the service areas?
    Would you like your guys having to drive farther to work every day to follow their work.....their work ...THEIR WORK.?

    If your terminal had more work than it could handle (which I've been told some of the road drivers sit and wait at your terminals as is) would you OK that work to be given to 3 terminals and your guys move or drive to follow it?
    If it's Readings work, and others have guys sitting at home, or not enough work.
    ...would it not be right to lay those terminals off and offer those terminals the option to come to where the work is rather than make the guys move who have the work?
    If we can't get drivers in Reading and other terminals have 12 extras...why not send the 12 xtras to where the work is?

    Yeah...I'm not happy that our works being taken....but some of that work...alot of it has been maintained and built by guys putting years in to keep it....years of 9hour bids by alot of them.
    I don't know the details of this formal COO stuff...but it seems the company is asking for our approval and cooperation ....not telling us yet.

    When I mentioned 9hr bids....they "invested in them". It's a $50/week legal contractual racket fee for a morning bid imo. It seems they'd like to help us by taking a bunch of that territory.

    Spent plenty of time running though Reading for a load. However, my terminal was busy too, and I always saw plenty of other drivers circling though our doors for good loads while I got to pick a Camp Hill turn, or some other crap load, as the foreign driver got a premium run.
    While I don't know, and won't say why I think they do this, it's probably more about driver utilization and keeping the drivers within areas to circle them back home after a day or two.
    Remember, not all wanted to bed, not all want to turn, and some terminals couldn't even go on beds.
    However, if they need drivers at your terminals, I do agree they should allow them to transfer into your barn.
    Then comes the complex seniority issue and who gets the work.

    Good luck with whatever happens.

    We'll be alright here. I think we can pick up more work. It's just lame. Lame for our guys who worry about losing their jobs. And lame for any of us who get knocked back into some dumbasses schedule. Andlike I said to finally get a day job here you must take.one of our 22 GD 9hr bids unless you're one of 4-5 guts who've been here 100 years...just saw a guy retire on one.....life on a 9hr shakedown ripoff racket bid...Pay $50/week for your day job.
    And if ya complain you're a labor problem... they NEED that $50. So they teach a lesson and take the 9hr bid areas.
    The Lancaster guys are their scapegoat whipping boys. Closed Lebanon they went to Lancaster. Closed Lancaster some came to Reading. Take their runs in Reading.....maybe they go to Camp Hill...they're not gonna change. Lancaster's their area and they run it best. It should be there's. They live there. Close Camp Hill next? Good.
    I've heard a million times that they closed Lancaster due to labor problems. Seeing what I've seen....the labor problems seem to be in Lebanon ...and there's no terminal there no more.

    Certain management must want bonuses. They know where money freight is. They've been with New Penn quite awhile. They saw opportunity in Readings area and new management ...shoved off new management on us so they could cherry pick and steal our freight for themselves. I hope we gain freight and they lose their asses sending guys inti new areas farther away....and may they be blessed with the happiness of 9hr bids up the arsenic and the happy guys stuck on them for life...I see labor problems in Camp Hills near future...Long term problems.

    What they want to do is take work for about 15 guys for both Camp Hill and Cinnaminson each. Trenton is getting Western Jersey up 31and over into Long Valley. But that's not much work so there's no man count for them. We have about 100 or so guys and they're taking about 30 guys work total. But they're taking really big areas from our area. Trimming us really good.

    And expanding the other areas really good.


    Bright quick bonus ideas kill many a company.

    Camp Hill may be able to get in and out of our area but I don't know what they're thinking with Cinnaminson. I can't see how they just get across the whole city of Philadelphia and up as far into our area as they plan...and get the work done. Maybe Philly will just stay home certain times of day to let New Penn through?

    Obviously I'm not management and don't see the big picture...but I do see some things. I saw a company who was a really good money maker who had a fairly simple system of using mostly the same type of trailer loaded with speed with skids from the floor to the floor with little stacking and no load bars and no 53'ers. The big change made big complications. ........now I see guys finally move up, probably gonna get. Knocked back or out. YRC wrecked the contract. Attitudes soured ...and now they'll sour more. Now as if the 53' trailer deal wasn't enough to wreck us...they want to change whole delivery areas.......maybe the plan is really to sink us.
    I thought " if it works, don't fix it."...... too much fixing stuff which don't need fixing...totally destroys stuff.

    It seems to me they should've sent the excess drivers to the excess work instead of sending the whole new areas to the drivers and our drivers to other terminals to work. There's no time for nonsense....and there's gonna be time spent on this nonsense which there is no time for imo.

    Changes since MOU passed

    February 2014. Our TM who came from Camp Hill went back to Camp Hill to become bridging manager. Second or third paragraph in the first post shows that. A Camp Hill manager also recently became our new Regional manager also.

    They're gonna do what they want because they can. Not much we can do. Attitudes will only get worse.
    Seemed to me like there was requesting and asking for approval.
    Means nothing.
    So they say the contract says they can do it.
    Keep moving guys around and catering to bottom drivers....Doesn't seem like a plan with any respect. Seems like a union busting plan and money losing plan. I've heard guys already wait 2 hours in Camp Hill...This will surely speed everything up.

    I have no idea why a Rep paid by our union would ever approve this BS. I don't know exactlly how all this works ...the technicalities of the Panel, the request and who it's made to, and what rights our guys have...........but no paid union Rep is really representing our guys if they don't stop this in any way they can. The justification is most probably not provable at all ....therefore it should be thrown out.
    Troublemakers have written this.
