Truckers To Strike In April
Business Insider reports that truckers will strike nationwide for one day on April 12, 2019.
The strike has been brought on by an unpopular law, a lack of parking, too much waiting at warehouses, and a litany of other frustrations.
Truckers aren't happy with the electronic-logging device (ELD) mandate.
The new US rule effectively makes it impossible for drivers to work more hours than the legally mandated limit.
Supporters of the law say the ELD mandate is crucial for enforcing labor laws and preventing accidents on the road.
Thousands of truckers are planning to protest the state of trucking on April 12, 2019, with "a nationwide shutdown."
They are organizing the strike in a Facebook group called "Black Smoke Matters."
