According to their new policy, even mentioning that you own firearms to anyone is considered an implicit threat and you can get fired for it?

Gotta love this country,


What will get you fired next?

I consider it more of a threat when they break our expensive inventory in their trucks.

Link, please?

My grandfather, a dyed-in-the-wool teamster (and first-class gun nut), drove for Roadway for 30 years. This'll make his blood boil.

In reviewing our the Meridian IQ policies, we realized that we didn't have a policy that focused on this important issue. This policy is adapted from Yellow-Roadway Corporation. Please contact Human Resources with any questions.

I'd love to get a copy of that email attachment, with the policy spelled out.

If it's true, they just lost another customer (one who also doesn't like the fact that they damage my freight frequently).

I deal with Yellow almost daily i cant wait until their driver "whom i know well " comes bask, he is a full fledged TN country boy, first thing a i'm going to say is" YOU OWN ANY GUNS"[ lol]

HR policies are just there to give them a paper trail to fall back on if they need to fire someone. There's a big difference between saying "hey, I bought a new AR this weekend" and "You know I have a lot of guns at home, right, fucker?"
