    I was terminated without cause and without warning. Our contract stipulates 15 days notice but they ignore this. Apparently Mercer is having financial problems and is cutting loose drivers who live in certain areas because they don’t have a large customer base. This left me scrambling to find another carrier and now I must go through a new orientation process. I have lost a week of revenue. Additionally, they are holding my final settlement until I travel at my own expense to Louisville to turn in decals and permit books. I have decided to hire an attorney instead. As a driver they will always throw you under the bus. Mercer policy is the customer is always right and the driver is always wrong. They will never back you up when their is a conflict. Just save the trouble and find a company that doesn’t treat you like an expendable number.

    This is why you should have your own authority. I have hauled for several times under my own authority and never had an issue.

    Sorry to hear that. Where you company driver or O/O? Also if you are from Texas as your name implies, you might just send them all their belonging thru UPS, or FedEx. That way you save yourself a trip and have a receipt. Remember if they want decals, they must be removed from truck and sent back in pieces, because that's how they will come off. Some companies are satisfied with a picture of truck with decal removed. Don't forget the IFTA decal if they belong to them.

    This was a record year for Mercer revenue wise.

    They treat me right.

    . Whatever. Don’t believe everything Mercer tells you. They are not going to advertise their financial problems are they?

    Had my own authority for 17 years. I was never once terminated. I will reactivate my authority if this new carrier doesn’t work out.

    Why would Mercer "cut you loose" because you live in a certain area? You self dispatch. I've been off for 2 months. Why the comment about customer is always right? What is the true story here?
