Anti Trucker bill provision requires truckers to work without pay

Anti Trucker bill provision requires truckers to work without pay
Say NO to Section 134, HR-5394

  If the ATA gets their way, this anti trucker law will be passed  which will affect drivers the same way as the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) has affected them. This would be ONE MORE EXEMPTION against drivers’ wages!   InfoGraphic-STOP New Legislation-Truck Driver Wages at Risk

 

Anti Trucker bill

CALL NOW and OFTEN  US Capitol Switchboard  202-224-3121

More and More Truckers are speaking out about The Anti Trucker Wage bill to be voted on in the House which was lobbied by the ATA. The language being attempted to be included in the THUD bill is a distortion of the FAAAA of 1994 intended meaning. The true meaning was to ensure the deregulation of freight rates. It was not intended to regulate #truckers wages. Federal Courts agreed with truckers. State Supreme Courts agreed with truckers. The U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear ATA appeal So now they are “asking” Congress to CHANGE the LAW— Exempting drivers from being paid for ALL TIME.

“Denham Language,” now referred to as “Federal Authority” language or FAAAA(F4A) Preemption language will be included in the THUD bill coming up for vote as early as April..
The section of the THUD bill with the “poison language” will preside in FEDERAL Authority SEC 134 of the bill.

Trucking industry lobbyists (including ATA) have stated that they are determined to get the  bill provision passed by targeting Republican Congress to pass this legislation, The anti trucker bill provision included in the bill  would negatively affect driver wages by preempting State Labor laws. This new legislation ( Such as Denham Amendment of 2015 which failed) would create law that would prevent drivers from ever being paid for all working time. (Detention, waiting, paperwork, etc…)
Say NO to Additional Federal Law to Preempt State Labor Laws. LISTEN TO REPLAY Understand  This dangerous Legislation
Call the Government Switchboard 202-224-3121

The ATA has openly stated that it is their PRIORITY to Preempt state labor laws, preventing  states from including truckers in their labor laws, exempting truckers from being paid for all time.

It is Imperative once again that we ALL call our Representatives and tell them not to pass the anti trucker bill language in any bill, such as the THUD bill,  which will Preempt STATES RIGHTS to pay truckers for their working time.
Drivers deserve to be paid a FAIR WAGE. They are making same wages as the 1980’s.
Vote NO on the SECTION of the THUD bill which prevents this from happening. ( It was in Sec 134 under Federal Authority)   Tell Them to REMOVE the Section in the bill which force them to continue working 30-40 hours extra per week without being compensated.  If the section of this bill is allowed to pass, Carriers will never be obligated to pay ANYTHING more than piece work wages…. NO MATTER HOW MANY HOURS drivers WORK.
