FMCSA: Long-awaited final HOS revisions announced

and allowing the break to be satisfied by a driver using on-duty, not driving status, rather than off-duty status.

I hope this means sysco will not automatically deduct 30 minutes from our pay every day if we decide not to go off duty for a DOT break (Which we never will have to again)

HOS final rule?

If the 30 minute break can be satisfied by on-duty, that means Sysco will expect us to keep delivering and not take one. Also I guess that means we'll have a reset 8-hr clock at every stop.

I guess there's the same situation with the short-haul exception changing from 12/14. The only place that would matter is if we still had a 16 hour exemption and tried to use it.

How's Everyone Doing? How is Freight? Not Many Posts Lately

Good luck with that! You couldn't pay me enough to attempt that for a couple of days. I really admire the delivery drivers.

Boy I'm going to be so sore when I go back to Sysco

Still furloughed. Haven't been given a call although last Friday it seemed like a lot of people had been probably only for that day.

How did it go with applying for your unemployment? Has it started yet?

double-quotes-end.png

double-quotes-end.png

I've gotten 1340$ a week for the past 6 weeks every week.

double-quotes-end.png

Dang!! Is any of that union money or just state and federal unemployment? Did you have any problems applying?

It's from state and federal; I didn't have any problems applying like other states might have. The only issue is the tax situation because it's only witholding 10% federal and 5% state from the state's unemployment and 0% from the extra 600. This is about 8.2% total.

I know that before I would have to gross approxamately 3400$ in two weeks to take home $2400. Right now, it's gross 2600$ take home 2400$ approxamately. That's 400$ a week missing in taxes. I BELIEVE that social security and medicare aren't required for unemployment, and the total gross is a lot lower too, so I don't know what I'm underpaying. But if I assume I need 25% taken out, then that's $224 a week I'm not supposed to have. confused.gif

Basically what I'm saying is anyone else getting this don't spend it all at once cause we're gonna be owing at the end of the year. I'm just going to change my witholding to 0 exemptions when I go back to work.

Moving to another state but need a job first.

Just curious if anyone has moved to another state and how they went about securing a new trucking job before moving to new state

Drove over in my car, walked in and asked for the job, got it, then rented nearby.

I Had this story pop up when I opened my phone this morning. The Washington Post reports Grocery employees are dying! No way! You mean to tell me Walmart, a company that employs over 2 million people, should be exempt from their employees getting sick?? In the article it also says

double-quotes-start.png

“One of the biggest mistakes supermarkets made early on was not allowing employees to wear masks and gloves the way they wanted to,” he said. “They’re starting to become proactive now, but it’s still going to be much tougher to hire hundreds of thousands of new workers. We’re going to start seeing people say, ‘I’ll just stay unemployed instead of risking my life for a temporary job.’ "

double-quotes-end.png

no. You're having trouble finding people because somebody will make MORE money by sitting at home than working a near minimum wage job. The additional $600 a week that people are receiving for unemployment is the equivalent of $15 an hr for a 40 hour week. If you factor in what your base unemployment check will be it's no wonder they can't find people to work. As part time or temporary workers I highly doubt anybody is hiring them at more than $15 an hr. If people will make the same amount of money whether they go to work or not why would they? Being part time or temporary they're most likely not getting any benefits. I know several people who are bragging that they're making more money to sit on their butt at home than they did while working.

I'm getting paid the same ahahah

As I understand it, specialty day-cab carriers such as Sysco are tailored more towards end-user retail and restaurant chains which, as JuiceBox points out, are taking a huge hit right now.

OTR carriers including myself at WM are largely serving the grocery chains and DCs, which are killing it atm due to panic buying.

Make sure to file unemployment. You'll get your state unemployment and an additional $600 a week from the feds through your state for four months.

Oh I already recieved my first $740 on Friday. (Minus 15% witholding). I don't know when an extra 600 would start

Sometimes I've had people pass me up a long time ago and then I end up catching them at the light on the next exit like 10 minutes later somehow.
