How are owner operators paid? What about their additional drivers? Owner operaotrs claim that they get one check a month but another driver said that they get weekly checks and that my boss is lying. Is this true? Several drivers are not paid on time according to one owner operator because of McCormick fiscal department. Does each owner operator have a defined contract or is my boss cheaping me out of my wages. I had to go several days without a pay check.

if the DOT would check, about half of mccormics trucks are running over hour of service

1) atlanta MPO to athens ga, to memphis Tn, one driver,one truck turning this trip daily with NO BREAK..4 hours in atlanta

2) atlanta to washington DC--one driver00one truck--turning it up and back 6 days a week

google thew wrecks this company has had.Darian Baird, a seasoned driver of over 20 years, died at the wheel of one of these trucks.Several ran off the road in the past few months going to sleep at the wheel.

Hazel, I have included the dept of labor phone number in a post below..call them and ask them directly.If you are working for an owner operator leased to mccormick, they by law HAVE to pay you postal wages which are currently around $24.00 per hour plus any holidays are paid extra with time adjusted by the amount of time you have put in in the last month.Call the Dept of labor and talk to BILL.He is a very nice guy and will answer any questions you have.He can get you any back pay owed and if they fire you, you can sue them and take their company.

My b/f works for an o/op for this company and gets paid 137.50 a day. He feels as if he is being screwed. I have been googling alot on this subject since this post came up. He has asked for a raise and was told that this was the rate for this run. Should he be getting more? He also doesn't get any type of holiday pay either.

I have worked for Mccormick for over 5 years now. I find it funny that SANE people really believe most of this stuff. I work here by choice. Not because I have too. They have been fair and paid me as they should. No I'm not kin or there (buddy). Most of this crap if not all of it I'd just that. Crap! If a driver is driving or pulling a trailer that's not up to dot standard its the drivers fault! They have never refused to replace tires or have work done on equipment that I have requested. Its the drivers responsiblity to inspect there equipment. As for my pay. I'm making what I should be. The ones on here crying are probably just mad for some reason. Also what truck driver out here really tells the truth. Not many I'd say. So if you believe all this stuff it shows your ignorance.

I am sorry you feel that way but I am only a driver and I'm sure not one of there favorites either. I have simply spoke the truth as I see it. I know they don't make the drivers run 20 hours a day. If there are drives doing that it is on there own will. As I said my pay is good and on time. Maybe you should have talked to Tracie about your problems.

For those of you who wonder why someone in Texas cares it is because I have a brother who drives for these creeps and I don't want to go to his funeral. I am also very curious about the "Fringe" deductions and why they are not broken out as to what they are specifically for. It sounds like McCormick is low balling the bids and then making it up by stealing from the employees. Only you guys can make the complaints and fix this. God Bless!
Feds say mail haulers were employees
By Jill Dunn

Federal officials filed a complaint against a California mail hauler, charging violations that include incorrectly classifying owner-operator employees as independent contractors.

The U.S. Department of Labor announced the filing of an administrative complaint Aug. 21 against Alan Berman Trucking, saying the company wrongly required drivers to use their own trucks and assume all costs.

The department seeks $1.3 million in back wages for 80 current and former employees and seeks debarment of the company and its principals, which would prohibit them from receiving government contracts for three years.

Alan Berman Trucking representatives did not return a phone call seeking comment.

Alan Berman Trucking has $10 million in mail-hauling contracts with the U.S. Postal Service in the Los Angeles and San Francisco regions. Mail-hauling contracts are subject to the federal Service Contract Act, which requires most contractors and subcontractors to pay their service workers no less than the local standard in wages and benefits, as determined by the Department of Labor.

Investigators said they found violations on eight contracts, including that Alan Berman Trucking paid employees by the mile or by the trip, failed to record hours worked and paid no benefits. The company allegedly also made illegal fuel deductions from drivers' pay and failed to reimburse drivers for the cost of maintenance and wear and tear on the driver-owned trucks. As a result, the drivers' wages fell below the prevailing standard wage rate, the Department of Labor charges.

The back-wage compensation would cover work performed between June 2004 and February 2007.

The suit names as defendants the company and two of its officers: President Alan Berman of Woodland Hills, Calif., and Vice President Osvaldo "Ozzie" Tarditti of Northridge, Calif.

mccormick trucking DOES have something to do with what owner operators pay their drivers.THE DEPARTMENT OF LABOR REQUIRES A OWNER OPERATOR TO PAY POSTAL SCALE WAGES of at least $22.34 per hour.If they are not paying this amount or better, all the owner operator employee has to do is call the department of labor in their state and the owner operator will be FORCED to pay the employee back pay and bring their wage up to what the department of labor says they will be paid, including holiday pay,vacation pay and hourly benefits.If you want to haul freight, you DO NOT fall under federal guidelines, hauling mail, you DO FALL UNDER FEDERAL GUIDELINES.. WAKE UP AND GET WHAT YOUR WAGE IS INSTEAD OF $10 an hour

I was ran off the road by a McCormick driver in Nashville Tn 2008. He broke my passengers foot, broke my neck and totalled my brand new red ford mustang. This driver is known by post office workers for bragging about how many pple he crashes, runs off the road & terrorizes. Apparently, he drives a local route and is supposed to make X amount of trips by the end of the day and gets bonuses if he goes above that and he will do it any any cost. McCormick has already go 3 cases pending with the courts here in Nashville. I had witnesses from the post office who were willing to testify to the night he hit and ran me off the road but they all of a sudden did not work for USPS. McCormick wanted to settle for pennies but I refused to settle. The matter is still in court. My lawyer dropped my case coz I wd not take McCormicks offer. I have a trial date coming up soon if anyone can help find a good lawyer please help I deserve justice.

I would not settle this case for pennies.Have the federal D.O.T search this companys records.They have a horrible safety rating.Several drivers have been killed, several going to sleep and running off the road,running 20 hours per day on ONE driver,its on and on, and on.They run these poor guys to death, and if the trucker gets a ticket, its the truckers money, not theirs.One was arrested last week in tennessee for an outstanding warrant in Va and the truck impounded.The information here is correct.Nothing is made up.Verify any and all if you like.
