March 13, 2019 – Dear Brothers and Sisters, As I’m sure most of you are aware, the Work/Rest rules are currently under review. We believe the membership should have input on the TCRC’s position regarding hours of service, hence we have created a short survey designed to convey your opinions to the National office.
be aware that the development of the Work/Rest rules are a
regulatory process, not a negotiation and that the opinions provided
by the TCRC are not demands. The Ministerial order mandates that the
Work/Rest rule update will be based on modern fatigue science and
Transport Canada will ultimately decide what the final rule will be.
The TCRC will formulate our submission on input from the membership,
TCRC officers and our fatigue specialist. We will be distributing
the link to the survey by email and with a link on our National
website. The survey begins with the user providing their name and
contact information. This will be used to verify the input is being
provided by a TCRC member and to update our membership contact
I urge each of you to fill out the survey and let your opinion be heard. The survey will end on March 31st , 2019. Here is the link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/B9P73PQ
