    Did the Union authorize this? Or would they even have any day?

    Do you mean for Holland? I can vouch for that. Best money Ive made so far but I was *never* home.

    No, I meant ABF. But most LTL companies are becoming the same, anymore. They lure you in with the promise of more home time, and then send you out on a tour of the United States.

    Holland linehaul here in SC is mostly gone all week from what I keep seeing. Some make it home once or twice during the week and off when they roll in Saturday morning before they head right back out Monday. Think they said they get enough time home to complete their 34. But not a whole lot of time past that.

    Back in Montana with Reddaway I ran linehaul for three years. I never layed over for more than two nights a month. Home daily turns for the majority.

    It depends on how the company operates. FedEx and UPS don't send their drivers out all week, but other companies have built their entire network out of having drivers run wild.

    Troy, Ohio: home of Jack Hewitt, one of my childhood heroes (and also one of Tony Stewart's)!

    You are talking about Eldora Speedway, south of Celina. I was there a couple of weeks ago. NASCAR is boring by comparison:

    Union is fighting but company says they are going to do it anyway.

    It's against the contract if abf tells all the drivers to pull the tape off the camera they are going on strike point blank
