Say “NO” to Denham Amendment and Trucker Wage Theft
Call the US Capitol Switchboard today before it’s too late
Drivers, this Amendment must be stopped!
The Denham Amendment introduced by Representative Jeff Denham from Turlock, California, has introduced legislation which could substantially reduce the amount truckers are or will be compensated in the future, for ALL their work , including waiting, detention time, paper work, etc.. and would also eliminate their right to take breaks under the laws provided by their state.
Trucking companies have been battling in the courts for years in states such as California and losing these issues. The trucking industry is now trying to sneak in a provision eliminating your rights in a larger transportation bill in hopes that the provision will go unnoticed.
The language in this bill would directly hinder the ability of drivers who are paid on a piece rate basis to receive the full wages they deserve for a hard day’s work.
The Denham Amendment is a law which would prevent Drivers from EVER enacting any type of supplementary pay system, such as getting paid for ALL work
In the words of our friend Pat Hockaday of TruckersUnited.org
“Drivers, it appears to me that we are under attack and it is time for US to start working together. “
First thing for YOU to do is to contact your legislatures. You may call the US capitol switchboard to do so, 202-224-3121
DRIVERS: Your urgent action is needed to stop THE DENHAM AMENDMENT from happening! A decision as to whether or not to include the provision eliminating your rights will be made by November 20, 2015.
Act now! Contact your representative and let them know that you DO NOT support the Denham Amendment to the Transportation Bill.
