    Congrats and good for you. You know of all the trucking companies out there, there is only ONE that I am aware of who does the right thing and pays overtime after the 60 hours as Federally mandated. The rest are a bunch of thieves - even the almighty Bison transport is just as crooked and CHEAP as the rest. Not one company I have worked for has ever (save for the one I just noted, but not worked for) even bothered to tell it's employees they are entitled to the O/T.

    I only have to wonder now just how many drivers will act on this information now. Sadly I suspect the answer to be near ZERO.

    Insist on overtime for the few hours you go over 60 and get your miles cut so you don't break 60hrs..... Yup I can see everyone doing this.

    For the few hours??? who do you work for? I have yet to see any driver put in less than 70 on paper per week and in reality, well... that's another story. Minimum 10 hours per week, 52 weeks per year, yep, I guess your maths is right, only a few hours there.

    I work for a BC/Alberta overnight ltl company. I'm home every weekend. Your right I come close to max hours regularly and so do many others. But if you tried to claim the overtime you can be sure a company would just cut back the miles till you stayed under 60hrs

    I might gain 100-150 week if they don't cut the miles. But if they cut the miles I'll lose 200-300 week

    So.. did you go through the labour board or was there a lawsuit? I went after a previous employer for some unpaid over time and after the federal labour board sent them a letter I got paid. No lawsuit required.
