Western Express year contract

Hello, Like every one else I made the mistake as to work for western Express. I worked for them for 3 months before I reported to my dispatcher that they violated the contract for not paying me. After a month and a half of only getting 200 per week, I quit. After 3 months on the road I was only home one time for 24 hours. I was driving from repair shops to a terminal then to deliver a load for the company and they where not paying me for it. In addition, my truck broke down almost every other week and I wasn't getting the breakdown pay as it states in the contract. After I quit they mailed me a letter saying I was fired.

Now after 6 months later, they are coming after me wanting to work or pay up. I keep asking when they are going to pay me first.

Anyone got any ideas on how to deal with western express?
