DOL/DOT Trucking Initiative – Posted March 29, 2022

The Biden-Harris Administration has announced a new initiative in which the Department of Labor and the Department of Transportation are working together to address workforce challenges in the trucking industry, including high turnover rates, long hours away from home, time spent waiting–often unpaid–to load and unload at congested ports, warehouses, and distribution centers, and predatory truck leasing arrangements. Getman, Sweeney & Dunn, PLLC supports the administration’s efforts to ensure that truck driving jobs are good, safe, and stable.
