The owner operator would pay me with comcheks weekly, therefore, making me a self employeed truck driver. The pay covered loads delivered prior to Monday of every week. As time passed, the owner operator started shorting my pay and making promises to catch up the following week. Which in most cases he did just that.
By the middle of March 2007 the owner operator was increasingly getting slower with pay.
In March 2007 I had just delivered a load in Pennsylvania and I sat in Pennsylvania for 2 days. (dispatch fault) I drive down to Jackson, Ohio to load a shipment going to California that had 7 stops in California. I get empty in California.
At this point the owner operator owed me $1200.00. I took a $50.00 draw through dispatch. The owner operator calls me and asks me how much he owes me. I told him $1200.00. He says "okay let me get a comchek code and call you back."
He calls me back and and gives me a cussing for no reason and tells me he is not paying me. All loads were delivered on time with no problems at anytime during transit.
At this point I quickly grab another $150.00 draw, which I had to pull teeth with dispatch to receive. I get a load back to toward home to Ohio and dead head the truck home to Indiana.
I turned the truck in at the CRST yard in Indianapolis, IN (the owner operator leased this truck from CRST) and left the trailer at the owner operators home, since he owned it. CRST dispatch requested the truck be turned in at their yard in Indianapolis.
When all the math was finished this CRST and owner operator owed me over $1.600.00.
I have continuosly contacted management at CRST in Cedar Rapids, IA requesting help to get paid by this owner operator.
CRST has not lifted one finger to try to help me. What a Rip-Off! This incident has caused me much financial distress. My rent went unpaid for over a month, as well as utility bills and other financial obligations.
CRST does not care about drivers. If they did, they would have docked the owner operator pay in order to pay me. Dispatch knew I hauled the loads and they wold not help at the time the non-payment of wages occurred.
My name was on the bill of ladings as the driver of all the shipments and I have copies for my records. Dispatch knew I was out there, and CRST in Cedar Rapids, IA maintained my drivers file.
By the way, the owner operator's name is Timothy Campbell from Ramsey, Indiana. His wife's name is Melissa Campbell, which I now believe that Mr. Cambell's truck paperwork related to CRST is in her name.
Why would a company not see that the driver doing the pulling on any load got paid.
They are the worst company I have ever driven for in 7 years of trucking.
