“We used to get killed with excessive overtime. Now for the first time we have a plan and we’re enforcing the language. We have 19 drivers on the list in my center. We’ve gotten the loads adjusted for the most part and where there’s still an issue we’re filing grievances and fighting for triple time pay. It’s all about bringing quality of life back to the package car driver.”
