Default New employer

The company I work for resently changed hands. At the time, the new owners said that everything would be business as usual, no changes in the works.

First they change the pay schedule from weekly to bi-weekly.

They make plans to install GPS tracking in the trucks.

Now, they say we aren't productive enough with just 2 trailers behind us.

I'm wondering how hard it'* going to be to back this sucker up.

In Australia they have bigger ones than that.

New owners are from Australia.

That makes it legal, right?

hmm where i work our LTL loads cant weigh more then 44,000 lbs. to be street legal, then add in the trailer weight plus the tractor and its around 90,000 lbs. in all which i think is max limit, so im sure those 4 trailers weigh more then that lol

In BC? there is no way there is going to be 3 here without some major road upgrades.
The Fraser Canyon is too narrow for whats out there now.

Of course it is.

No way anyone could handle that rig on the roads we have around here. Hard enough with 2 trailers a lot of the time.

A couple of the guys and myself are puting together an album for the ex owners and we thought this picture would look good in there too.
