At this barn it's always been seniority gets the first pick and the power to bump, there's never been "bid tractors" ever. I could be wrong but the masterbate agreement says co. can give out equipment to whomever they so chose??? That being said the interim tm is leaving it up to us while they sit back and watch us fight over dilapidated junk that couldn't pass a chp inspection even if you bribed them with hookers and a twelve pack.
    That is a goal of management. To watch children fight and divide ......

    If your equipment can not pass a DOT inspection , why do you take it out the gate ?
    Its your ass that has their name on the ticket. Your ass's CSA points.
    Should this ship sink and you got a bunch of CSA point's you will have a ruff time getting hired elsewhere .
    I have been seeing people with 50 pts sent packing out in the real world ( NON- UNION)
    A friend recently got 38 points in one inspection...
    Got to be thinking forward a bit more these day's

    The southern states have all the good equipment. The junk equipment is the called the "Yankee Hook-up" famous term used by Nashville and the dumb-@$$es in Cincinnati. Of course, Cincinnati is in a Yankee state, but don't remind them of that, because they get all upset over it. Yes, that is how dumb they really are out there. The management thinks their Moses on top of the mountain getting the message from God, similar to how their terminal sits on top of a hill getting their message from company HQ. They are a complete joke.

    Now, in order to get the good equipment, just put a bunch of beef-jerkys in your mouth and start talking, you will sound just like them, and most of the time you will get the good equipment. A little trick I learned over the years, and it works to perfection for linehaul, anyway.

    Hell they can't even rebrand the YRC name on the equipment here.

    We only have one assigned truck in 621. It's given to the non union driver out of Atlanta. It's the biggest POS the yard can find for him
