I have triggered events on my truck, never heard anything about them so far as they are all reviewed.

We also have a policy where if you are terminated you have 30 days to protest in writing. If you do you are given a chance to state your case on a conference call and they then decide based on that if the termination is upheld or if you are reinstated. Does Schinder have something similar?

I don’t know I will have to pursue it.

I don’t know if The events were individually reviewed, and I don’t know what Schneider’s criteria is for evaluating those events, but crucially, never once has the truck’s stability been compromised since I’ve been driving. Which is really all that matters and what makes no sense about this. There are no actual real stability issues that I’ve encountered, yet I have all these events and my teammate has experienced similar. If Schneider was looking at them, they would know or either they do not care. I take safety seriously, We all do, I would hope. But when you are turning left from a stop at a light and register a critical event, or are driving on a straightaway and register a critical event, as a driver you cannot take that seriously and there is nothing you can reasonably do. And this fell on deaf ears apparently. I mean, when you are creeping towards a fire hydrant and your truck registers a forward collision event and hard breaks your truck to a full stop, which has also happened to me, what am I supposed to make of that?

Yes they do.

I left the kingpin lock on the truck with my teammate, who is a close acquaintance.

Was your teammate also terminated? Based on the above, seems like he is still on the truck.

Yes. Teammate has not been terminated. Teammate is not on good terms with company at this point however.

I do as well, signs, construction barrels a passing gnat what ever it thinks is a hazard.

Most companies review the recording to see if it is a legitimate triggering or not.

This is why i think the hype for self driving vehicles is a joke, if this system does this now how can it be relied on to operate with no human?

I'm leaning towards believing you bro. Reason being, my truck registers a sudden Accel or decel sometimes just putting it into gear at a stop. Difference is, my company knows about this and I still made sure to mention it to the safety manager.

That being said, I agree with everything else that says you probably didn't handle the situation proactively. You should learn a lesson from this. Charge it to the game bro and file a grievance. It's over now. No going back.

Christian...why were you terminated and not your teammate? He had 9 of the 17 total recorded events. More than you. Odd...

G town, Christain had 17 total on his own in 2 months. His teammate had 9 on his own. 26 between them. Im sorry, there is a problem with the systems on that truck. Im giving this guy the benefit of the doubt on this one. There has been a major miscommunication on both sides of this mess.
