Denham Amendment defeated in FAA bill BUT it’s not over- ATA sends petition to FMCSA

After 3 years of numerous failed ATA attempts to override and preempt states labor laws which protect employees from wage abuse, the ATA has taken one more desperate attempt to Petition the FMCSA based on 49 U.S.C. § 31141 -stating that the State of California’s Meal and Rest Break rules are preempted by Federal law ( According to ATA Petition)
ATA seeks FMCSA approval to Preempt state laws which presently protect trucker wages.
Tonight we’ll discuss what’s behind the ATA “Meal & Rest Break” Petition and discuss how it’s all connected to the recently failed attempt to include the Denham Amendment in the FAA bill.
It’s not just about Meal & REST Breaks…. It’s about Preempting Trucker Wages.
