This is the real salary of truckers! 27 $ -30 $ per hour plus overtime after eight hours of work! Any other type of salary is discriminatory, allowing companies not to pay for the many types of work that a trucker does, and also provokes violations of traffic rules, forcing the driver to experience constant stress. Salary miles does not guarantee income to the truck driver, even if the driver is in the workplace, and is responsible for cargo and equipment around the clock. Compensation for work must include all the time that the trucker is in the workplace and is responsible.
Once again, the Teamsters have shown leadership benefitting men and women workers in the transportation industry. The Union has successfully concluded bargaining for an enhanced collective agreement that is already considered a model in Quebec’s trucking industry.
