For the Union Du community, Taking care of young Union members [View all]

Company gave disciplinary letter to road driver, delay of freight. Young guy is extra board which is no bid, you work 10-14 hours and you go home and sleep at all odd hours and in ten hours they are calling you to come work do it again. This morning young Union guy searched me out Iím pinch hitting as Union steward on this shift, playing yard jockey our one steward is out fmla on this shift.

The guy pulls over and naps over steering wheel, Iíve done it many times we all have. So I told him do not sign letter that they tried to give you at dispatch window, then I took him and showed him how to fill out grievance sheet. And all we wrote on it was federal dot regulation 392.3 which states driver is in control over fatigue or illness. Keep it short and simple on grievance and let the company try and argue with dot rules, management assholes. They preach safety until it effects them , rule is out the gate be safe earn big cash and come home to the family.
