We see more sub-service being used more now than ever, its being used everyday for short hauls. Line haul guys will sit at home or be on the dock while sub-haulers are being used in short lanes. Maybe I misunderstood when I heard they were only being used in overage lanes. How do you line drivers feel because your runs are being sent with sub-haulers so that the company can save a few bucks at your expense? Some of these terminals are beginning to look like truck stops. Why don't you guys start asking the ABF line drivers how many times their line runs are send with sub-haulers? Why not ask the UPS guys as well? Work rules are an important part of a union contract. Start asking and see how bad we are getting screwed!
