Sorry to hear about your brother. I am sure your in great pain but you can't point the finger as your brother may not have told Swift that his doctor didn't want him to drive or that he was having health problems. You would be shocked at the things driver's keep from their mangers as they can't afford to be put off the truck whil so they don't tell them. As far as keeping him on the road, drivers set their hometime with Swift themselves. They can put in a request to be home. They must stay out 6 days to earn one day of hometime. Many drivers choose not to put in a home time request and stay on the road to make more money. Swift doesn't force drivers not to go home. Every company has it's share of bad managers as well as bad drivers but just remember your brother may not have told you the full story. Swift sends it's drivers to have physicals by a real doctor every two years as required by law. The majority of driver's health problems are due to poor eating habits and lack of physical exertion and smoking as well. I am very sorry for your loss.

HEY MANAGEMENT!!! It does not take an English Major to understand the two people in these posts.
You apparently have little management/leadership experience to instill safety, teamwork, or training. Your just collecting a paycheck and "Following Company Policy"; a " Yes Man". Truck Drivers are not totally without fault with the threat of losing their jobs to a computer QualCom message.
Get your act together and quit complaint to the press about not being able to keep drivers.
Ask yourself; why do you think Uniions are going after your company? If you can not figure it out then get a refund on your MBA .
