    Default Drive Cameras

    Thank you so much YRC for spending millions on the drive cams. Meanwhile, the workman's comp claims rise as your aging workforce destroys their bodies on the junk equipment we are forced to work with. Good call from the powers that be. Our concessions at work.

    Yep. Another brainy waste of huge money. More excuses to discipline guys. Annoying as all Hell. Takes alot of patience not to smash the POS.2 guys here are up on 5-day suspensions for blocking the lens with cardboard and pro-stickers. Our loser leadership showed complete and utter laziness by meeting with YRC and giving them the OK to use them. Mr Johnson showed that he shouldn't be leading the union. His name was on the memo. Yes, it's their trucks. But this is OUR TRADE. We do not need to be told how to drive the trucks. Goddmaned thing beeped all day today. Like a fire alarm with a dead battery. You are not gonna stay a mile behind somebody in the city.
    I cannot believe leaders of a union would sit with a company and say its alright to put that thing in our trucks. Maybe we should all leave messages on the leaderships answering machine with constant beeping from the POS mobile eye. And they'll come up with some lame BS EXCUSE OF WHY WE SHOULD HAVE TO SIT THETE. AND LISTEN TO THAT ****. THEY SHOULD BE FIRED.WEAK AS WEAK CAN BE. WEAK LAZY USELESS SOB'S.Will they ever get out of "lazy" mode? They should be in the company face bitching like hell that we took all these concessions for them to waste GD money on junk that tries to tell us how to drive.
    Worthless bums have been representing us.Spoiled rotten worthless POS BUMS!
    AND TGE SAME TYPES RUN THIS COMPANY.

    All of this is to reduce their liability in a collision....Or so they claim. While we had our briefing on the drive cams we were told about all the workmans comp claims. Drive cams have little to do with that. The trailer doors are in such disrepair I would assume that the majority of the claims are back, neck, and shoulder, related from lifting the broken doors..

    They wanna sit there and have safety meetings every other day and distractions cause accidents. I have never had such a distraction as this POS mobile eye. They talk out of both sides of their mouth on a constant basis.

    And we have all these things they want everybody signing off on with these safety meetings....and there's been a major increase in safety warning and discipline letters. I suspect its a plan to get out of paying comp.

    If you have an incident, they want us to have a meeting with a "driver trainer" to discuss what happened. They also want you to enable the record feature from inside the cabin if there is a situation that the camera doesn't automatically record. That's right! Take your eyes off the road to enable that thing to record!

    They have become very slick in how they present this crap. An attendance sheet is there for you to print your name.

    A real union leader would have a meeting for us with them saying that we will now have forms initialed and signed by management every time there is a verbal exchange on anything. We must have signed records for every interaction.......but they'll just say our guys must sign everything. No court should ever accept the nutcase idea that all 500 points of every safety sheet initialed by drivers every other day means that we're gonna remember and follow every one of the trillion given in a month.
    Every part of this country has gone certifiably insane.

    Not mentioning any names but we did get a "heads up" that pressure is coming from above to issue warning letters for any infraction. January and February gifts that we have all grown to love and appreciate over the years. We were able to flush the "turds" at our barn and now have some managers that are actually "human." They have turned the morale around at our barn to a point I never thought possible. Now we go back to discipline for dipping a toe off the cross walk? More wasted time and money just so upper management has proof they are doing something. Doesn't matter how stupid the idea is, it justifies their position and worth to the company.

    2 major issues that should be addressed but they opt for a drive cam? Injuries and damage claims. Repair the worn out equipment instead of the bubble gum and baling wire approach they employ now. Get us the tools to do our job! Good dunnage, shrink wrap, tape. It took me 10 minutes to find a roll of tape the other day and the only place I have ever found a roll of shrink wrap was in the OS&D bay. Our dock hands have to search high and low for materials to recoup freight? That explains why it isn't getting done.

    Speaking of crap equipment, our newest junk tractors at 896 are 2008 Volvo's, all have a clean air system and all have close to 1,000,000,000 miles. Instead of supplying these tractors years ago when we actually needed them (we don't really they are road tractors with 14L Cummings? and way to much HP, 375), someone got the brilliant idea to give them to us after they had already been left for dead.
    These piles of garbage sat in our yard until the last minute before the deadline for having clean-air tractors was up, then everyone had to scrabble to pick one. Fortunately mine was out at a vendor being fixed (2008 International clean-air already) so when another guy jumped into one of them fancy new (he thought) Volvo's I jumped into his International which was newer then mine, I made out to say the least.
    Now you are probably saying to yourself "an International over a Volvo, I'd pick the Volvo" well the problem with those tractors of which I have had experience is that when they regen they spill a ton of fumes into the cab, noxious, nasty, chocking fumes for you to breath-in 2/3 times a day as you sit in traffic something these piles of sh!t weren't designed to do. Everybody was suddenly scrabbling to find the least offensive smelling tractor but there was none to be had, LOL!!! Apparently the clean-air systems on this junk is worn-out, most can't even regen fully and go critical after a couple of days. Basically they are not installing cameras for our safety but to make sure they're not liable when their junk causes an accident or when it does they can quickly blame the driver for not following their safety guidelines and training, they'll have proof now!
