Is the ATA the voice for the Professional driver? 2-25-16 6PM ET 347-826-9170

We will be playing  a recent radio interview of the Chairman of the ATA, Pat Thomas, who made the statement that the ATA is not only the voice of the trucking industry, but more importantly the voice to Congress and Lawmakers, as well as those in charge for regulations!!
Yes, regulations! You know the ones, Speed Limiters, ElD’s, heavier trucks....

 A provision ( introduced in part by the ATA) is presently waiting to be approved in the FAA Reauthorization bill,.  Slipped into the FAA bill is a provision hidden deep within affecting the U.S. trucking industry, specifically the way wages are paid to CDL drivers. Among those who have placed pressure on the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure to include this wage damaging provision are:

American Trucking Associations, the 50 ATA-affiliated state trucking associations, the National Private Truck Council, the Truckload Carriers Association and the Truck Renting and Leasing Association.

 The ATA is desperately trying to get the truck driver wage provision in the FAA reauthorization bill!

Tonight we will discuss the deceiving tactics that are being used by the ATA to get professional drivers to agree with them,having Section 611 approved in the FAA bill. Read more

If you do not believe the ATA is your voice, then call your representative and tell them no to Section 611 in the FAA bill.

Call in tonight and let us know who you believe the voice of the Professional Driver is!
