Celadon Trucking CELADON'S HOSTILE CORPORATE TAKE OVER OF MY EMPLOYER Indianapolis, Indiana
*Author of original report: Stranded in Laredo thanks to Celedon
Later, we heard that USA logistics employees were instructed to drop their loads in Indianapolis or Dallas, wherever they happened to be closest.Finally, this Celadon security guard said we could leave the load there and directed us to another yard where we were to drop off the cab, because the dispatch was open and presumably they would have information for us. When we got there, I saw a few other people had their luggage left out in the front and a group of people we sitting at a picnic table. We asked the Celedon securty guard what we were supposed to do and if any plans had been made for us. He didn't know anything, except he said he thought Celadon was offering work to some of the old employees.
Inside the office, a Celadon dispatcher told me no one would have any information until the office opened the next morning at 8:00 am, but that we could spend the night in our cab if we wanted. The APU had not been working and that didn't seem like a viable option to us. So instead, we opted to take a cab, at our expense, to the Greyhound station in downtown Laredo. No one was waiting for us to give us a ride or anything. Nor did anyone at Celadon spring for a motel room. If Celadon really wanted us as new employees, why was no one waiting there at their terminal to take us to a motel room or the Greyhound station?
When I arrived at the Laredo Greyhound, I found out the bus only leaves once a day for McAllen, and it's at 10:00 am, so I had to hang around the Greyhound terminal for around eight hours. There was a motel nearby but it was booked up. When I arrived back in McAllen, a recruiter from Celadon phoned me the following Monday offering me a position and to fly me to Indianapolis for orientation. I put him off for a week and he called a week later, but I did not accept. After reading these reviews, it appears I made the right decision.
Celedon opted not to use the McAllen terminal. The McAllen terminal was USA logistic's main terminal and it was quite large. Not only did Celadon put a large trucking company out of business, alot of driver's lost their jobs.
