Some workers for a local trucking company, got their dispatch from the Michigan Trucking Terminal as they normally do, but it was different Friday. They were told to meet at the Maysville, KY. Terminal Monday 07ቢ/2009 at 1:00 p.m. for a meeting.
The companies regional terminal manager was there to deliver some bad news. The drivers were told that they were laid off from work indefinitely, also the mechanic and the Maysville, KY. terminal manager were also given layoffs as well.
Sources say the company has been in financial trouble for some time. One driver said, “they had not had any work in KY for a year or better. They had been leaving on Sunday, and driving (Deadheading) the trucks to Detroit, MI. to start their week off, and then delivering their last load to Shippingport, PA. and driving (Deadheading) back home with little pay for the time driving.”
