*General Comment: Ugly story after ugly story.
*UPDATE EX-employee responds: explaining the down time idling to class action
*Consumer Suggestion: Class Action
the final straw was when they put out a memo telling drivers to cut down their idle time.i made a real effort to comply.we sat in truck stops(waiting for loads,as usual),out west with temperatures over 100 degrees with the engine off and windows down until we could not stand it anymore.we almost lost our dog from heat exhaustion.
so on several occasions we paid for idle-aire and motel rooms out of our own pocket.after three more months of suffering through this,but still making the loads,i did get,on time,i was called back into the home terminal (ocala florida).
upon arrival,i was called into my driver manager's office.he pulled out a clipboard and told me that iwas on the list of drivers that had idle time of over 40% and that i was terminated.i argued and told him how i went out of my way to comply but was fired anyhow.i cleaned out my truck and left.
upon returning home i put in 34 applications and was turned down on every one of them.before this i was never fired once.i even have awards for driving and safety.i was obviously blackballed.i am still unemployed and would like revenge on these idiots because they ruined our whole life.
