    "We went home"------I would try to contact the others who are included in "we" and if they have "termination" on their record, I suggest that y'all seek legal advice in this matter. If the others do not have it on their record, then I would talk to a lawyer and see what legal action that I could take.

    Exclamation

    If you get layed off the company should have given you a pink slip;that you take to the unemployment dept(if you chose to).It's been my experience,ESPECIALY in this bussiness.LEARN THE LAW/YOUR RITS.Because people in general/companies will lie to protect themselves from paying $ to anyone,especialy the so called dumb/ignorant drivers
    (you do for them,an they give back only what they have to by law.

    I`m sure they was just trying to avoid paying unemployment. Plus i think it looks better on them when they say they fire someone instead of putting on their records they have to lay people off...

    JHT Holdings > Truck Movers > Iron Tiger Logistics

    Active Transportation, Unimark and Auto Truck Transport USA are also sub units of JHT Holdings.

    “Their technology is a major differentiator. We didn’t find anyone else even close to being able to manage our trucks the way TruckMovers does.”

    Dennis Huffmon - Vice President
    International Truck & Engine
    Looks like IT is having a heck of a time keeping enough qualified warm bodies around to get the Navistar trucks moved as every lot seems to be overflowing with undelivered trucks. More interesting are many of the 'contractors' IT is using in an attempt to get the trucks moved - the stories are already legendary.

    JHT Holdings has shot itself in the foot (both feet actually!) by playing the myriad games involved in attempting to remove union representation from the industry. Thinking JHT's 'business' with 'employee relations contractors' greatly contributed to their bankruptcy a few years back and they can't blame 'competition' as JHT owns the entire segment lock, stock and barrel.

    My 'payroll problems' have multiplied since the first of the year; thinking its' because of my strong support for the IBT. Boysen Anderson of the IAM is working in collusion with JHT Holdings to undermine the pay, benefits and working conditions that the unionized driveaway industry fought long and hard for.

    There is a Unimark thread within this same category. Unimark drivers can come on our property but must pay the $52 per month union fee even though they don't get the benefits.

    Expenses regarding Unimark/ Truck Movers: first tank of fuel is provided and you are on your own afterwards for EVERYTHING. The one possible exception is return transportation from Canada. Some drivers I've spoken with were provided with or reimbursed transportation expenses while others weren't.

    The vast majority last for about 3 trips max. before they quit, stating they actually lost money on the trips. The pay is typically about 50 cents per mile (mover's guide) for a single truck and up to $1.50 for a 4 truck decked set.

    Iron Tiger Logistics is a gutted version of Auto Truck Transport, which is a gutted version of Active Transportation. One group owns and runs the entire truck haul industry: JHT Holdings headed by casino owner Dennis Troha.

    Unimark = Truck Movers = Carolina Cargo

    Carolina Cargo of Rock Hill, SC isn't connected to JHT Holdings as far as I know but attracts the same type of people as Unimark/ Truck Movers.
