My husband works for IBC in Tulsa and has been with the company for approx 16yrs. We are trying to hold out long enough to get his pension from the Union. Their contract was signed in Aug or Sept and by Oct the company wanted to break that contract and has the route salesmen take even more cuts. As far as mgmt is concerned, they shuffled people around to make it look like they took paycuts. Hopefully, the company doesn't try to make the drivers buy their routes. I have talked to quite a few drivers for Bimbo and Flowers, those I have talked to are not to thrilled with that option. Many of those drivers have actually been selling their routes, so that they can actually have a life since you are on call 24/7 when a store needs something.

What are the differences between Company drivers and drivers who bought their route. I know that the one who bought the route has to pay for truck expenses and all the other cost associated in running a business. Does the one who bought their route get paid more for their services. And to want degree.
