This is a message to anyone and everyone who might or is currently doing business with Conway Truckload formerly CFI Trucking. This company as of today has fired over 200 truck drivers in the last week.
My husband was one. He has been a truck driver for well over 28 years and not new to this industry. This company has treated him the worst he has ever been treated by a company.
He was told one month ago that he needed to come to Joplin Missouri so that the computer on his truck could be downloaded. Well it took them almost one month to get him to Joplin because the freight was more important.
When he arrived in Joplin today, he was terminated and told to get home the best way he could.
You see he was hired and did his orientation in Jacksonville, Florida. So its no easy task to everything that you take with you home again. Most of the time he was out for 4 weeks + so you have a computer, tv, refrigerator, cb, clothing and bedding (even his dog).
He was not given a copy of anything that he signed today. He was not told when he would get his last pay check. He just recently had a friend sign on and he was suppose to get a recruiting bonus, he was not told where that money is.
I am sure there has to be something they have done which is not legal today. I just need to find out what.
They talk a good game getting you to go to work for them. They are a driver oriented company. Well, today showed how driver oriented they are.
I hope that companies that do business with Conway Truckload or CFI will listen to this representation of how they treat their employees, just imagine how they will treat their customers.
I welcome all comments and suggestions. I just can't believe that they have known for almost one month they were going to fire him and never let him know.
The very least they could have done was fire him in Florida where he was hired. Not in Joplin, MO. Just in rental car fees we are at over 400.00. I don't know many households that have an extra 400.00 per month to spare. We certainly did not. But he has to get home.
The internet is a wonderful tool for getting your message out there.
May God Bless
