So it’s been meantioned after May 15th Schneider will go to hourly pay. I can see on their website a mention of 25 an hour. The next question is what will count towards that and how will overtime work. Will OTR drivers who drive their 70 hours really get 30 hours of overtime pay? If so At 25 an hour with Overtime pay and 70 hours that’s looking like a 2k week paycheck for what otherwise might of been 1200-1500 if paid cpm. Anyone over there can confirm the details of this change that’s supposed to shake up the industry?

OTR:

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.

CPM:

Cents Per Mile

Drivers are often paid by the mile and it's given in cents per mile, or cpm.

For OVR as an example, I’ll still get my regular cpm. The hourly component is going to be for anything logged on-duty not driving. So we are going to get an hourly wage now for fueling, spending time at customers etc.

It’s not replacing the current pay structure, just an addition.

The folks I talked with at the Schneider OC in Gary IN thought it was for local hourly-paid drivers only. $25 per hours starting.

Developing story...

Now that I'm an employee again I can see some truth to the hourly pay. I am working a dedicated account and I would be grateful to receive pay while spending so much time waiting to be docked and unloaded. I may only drive 6 hours a day ut spend hours on the docks.

How about detention pay? Are you on top of that?

I haven't heard yet. More information is to be sent out to the fleet at any time. But I'll be on it when it comes out.

Each division/account is different but I believe that is one accessorial we lost for VTL. It’s the one negative I’ve found for me personally so far. Detention didn’t start until after the two hour mark but you got it even when being logged off duty. Now if you want to get paid while delayed for loading/unloading you have to stay on duty for the hourly pay which obviously eats up more of your 70.

Overall happy with the changes but the loss of detention time kinda sucks.
