I'm not on here to bash the company at all. We just want to point out truth and facts.
CGT was told right before there election that the the drivers no longer had to call dispatch when they went to the rail to go on delay because they could be tied up there for hours. That was one of the gripes the drivers had. So the company told them to fill out a Kronos paper and they would not have to give up there 30 minute free time there lunch and th...ey would be paid from the time they got there to the time they leave no more calling dispatch. Mike Ducker told them that there would be changes with that after the election and they were looking at changing there CMH run.
So Dave Conway and Bob Atherton went around to the no's and fence sitters and also texted guys that they were going to move it to another location after the vote and it was going to add miles and they were going to be very happy.
Tuesday Dave Conway and some other drivers were called into management's office to be told that they have to go back to calling dispatch for there delay when they are there and the CMH could not be moved because it is 2 miles more and 4 miles round trip therefore with the amount of drivers going there it will cost the company way to much to move. Hey dave and Bob how's the change in CLT working for you now.
Folks I am posting this to show you the false promises being made across the country. We posted yesterday about the drop/hooks and roadside inspection pay. We were all told back in March about the changes coming and we were all to get an increase in June and only 56 places got it. This type of false promises have gone on in all the places that filed a petition so far but 4 places didn't buy into it.
The writing is on the wall it's right in your face what are you not seeing. This is not going to get better and the only ones that can change this is YOU. Take off the blinders and start stepping up to the plate. Stop waiting for the union or waiting for this center or that and worry about your own and start making the change.
