    Default Getting Paid What I am Worth-Finally

    I recently filed for run around pay on 214 miles. Got paid $233 and some change for it. Not too bad I think, plus I didn't have to do the work.

    OHFL. Still stepping over Twenty dollar bills to pick up Dimes.

    Well at least you filed for it. I'm amazed how some people just say oh well. I don't care if it's only a nickel, if I have it coming don't try to beat me out of it. And I don't want anything I don't have coming.

    Only if you have a good steward that uses the position for the members and not his personal gain.
    The last issue I had before retirement was ignored. I filled out my own grievance form and submitted it myself since I was told my seniority didn't apply to a run dispatched at the same time, to a casual, but not offered to me.
    Without the backing of the steward it fell on deaf ears. My complaint to the B.A. didn't help either.
    I was told they can add runs at the last minute and fill them as needed.
    I know better. Seniority rules for all work dispatched at the same time.
    One of the many reasons I retired.

    Sounds more like someone didn't want to rock the boat since you were retiring anyway..

    He did not know I was retiring.
    He didn't want to rock the boat of high mileage, illegal runs he and his cohorts were getting.
    Like the Boston flip, a 606 mile round trip that only on the very best of days could be done.
    Anyone that runs the NJ turnpike, across the GWB and Cross Bronx up though Connecticut knows ...
    To sum it up, that is a 55MPH average over the allowed 11 hours.
    With 62MPH trucks, on and off ramps, traffic lights out of and into the respective terminals, etc ... it is an outright impossibility.
    I left on medical first ... then put my papers in after a few months when the doctors told me my knee was as good as it will get.

    I wasn't the only one he didn't do anything for. Many people filed their own grievance forms. He only filed if he was going to get paid on an item.

    Absolutely right fxstc07,I have friends at both New Penn and Yrc who put their papers in because they couldn't take the BS anymore.Shouting matches with the SS and BA about how they were letting the company get away with EVERYTHING.''''They can do that,it's in the new contract'' BS-WHO THE HELL ARE YOU REPRESENTING-US or the COMPANY.Meanwhile,Crap Equipment,No Manpower,Harassment,Spotters everywhere and MORALE at a All-Time low.Not Good.

    Just the other night the exact same scenario played out. One of the bid drivers had the second leg of his run cut. They sent him out without offering him a run that was 40 some miles longer but due to the terrain takes less time to run then what he was dispatched on. He called and was squawking and flapping his wings complaining that he wasn't given a choice. He was told to file on it. His response? "I don't want to upset the apple cart." This is one of the scabs that was hired when we were on strike, but has since joined the Union but still has no balls.

    On the other hand, the same night, driver wasn't offered a run that was 40 miles longer that what he took. Got back in the morning and walked into the TM's office and said pay me. The Great Buddha look at him and said "you are going to file for 40 miles?" "Yep." "Don't care if is a buck it is still mine."

    P**** is all I can say about that guy who refused to file. He should return to the land of the round mouths.
