Drivers are at the heart of our operations, and we are dedicated to treating them as such. TTSI is proud to have a strong working relationship with the Teamster Union and is 100% compliant with all California labor laws.
Over the past few years, California courts brought significant changes to the transportation industry by defining commercial drivers as employees and created compensation guidelines. Previously companies contracted independent owner-operators.
TTSI implemented company policy in 2015 to ensure drivers are employees, ahead of legislation. Our robust driver employee program offers great pay, benefits and vacation, plus a paid driver training program that empowers the workforce-at-large to trade the office desk for the driver's seat.
Drivers are compensated for all hours while on duty. The State of California established guidelines that if drivers are paid piecemeal (by the mile or by the load), they must also receive hourly compensation while doing all other duties. Examples include: wait times, pre-trip and post-trip inspections, and breaks. Previously, industry norm was to pay piecemeal only.
Electronic Logging Devices (ELD's) track driver hours. Electronic Logging Devices (ELDs) track these hours. They ensure labor guidelines are followed by electronically limiting the number of continuous hours an individual driver may work in a single shift.
TTSI streamlined its driver logs from paper and pen to On-board Electronic Logs (ELDs) so they could more efficiently log trips and hours. We understand that any new technology in the workplace introduces a significant learning curve. TTSI made sure to implement ELD's well ahead of legislation to ensure our drivers were trained and comfortable with the new technology.
