Giant parcel company proves it again

Giant parcel company proves it again

 

DPD at Hinckley super hub lets go of 165 agency drivers without any good explanation just before Christmas, leaving them unemployed.

This proves big companies don't care about drivers and their families.

For the last few months DPD and it’s agencies have been promising very good pay rates and Christmas bonuses just to get as many drivers they could possibly get for busy period.

Many drivers left current employers to join parcel giant and now they have been left with nothing.... In just three days 165 drivers received a massage from their agencies to say DPD don't need them anymore.

We all realise agency work is not guaranteed but they are all humans and everyone needs to be treated fairly.

So many drivers have been left angry and dissapoineed, especially with recent drivers shortages they are still been treated like they are worth nothing.

This is a very good example why young people don't want start their career in this industry when there is no guarantee they will find a job with a decent company.

Drivers are for life, not just for Christmas...

If you speak to the actual transport management they say they now don't have enough drivers due to the culling of agency drivers, the " senior drivers " have to actually go out on the road now.....clearly decision was made by people who don't know the first thing about transport. The company wouldn't know what allocation of runs or planning is if it came up and bit them on their bum.....

Text Quote POLISH Driver!!!:
DPD is the worst company in the uk. banning drivers for nothing, any contractor can accuse you and you will be fired without the right to defense, such a fascist company - always right Gestapo management is just right, he treats people like shit .. how did it happen that such a dirty company is one of the largest in the UK ... he brings shame to this proud great country!!!!



I have never read so much s*** in all my life. Gestapo? Fascist? Listen all I ever see from agency drivers is speeding around hubs, walking/driving with earbuds talking on the phone, no hi Viz being worn. Some shouldnt be riding a bike never mind driving an artic ffs. If you get banned it means you've f***** up! Agency drivers do not even get an assessment but I can guarantee you if they did half of them wouldn't be working in there!

"Everyone need now how shite is this company"

If you were full time you wouldn't be saying that though would ya?
Agency bleating on again about how unfair life is? Go full time then. You cannot have your cake and eat it.

DPD breaks the law all the time and mocks people ... when they do rescue after 20 hours and do not let the driver take a night out, it is already illegal, but VOSA is paid and turned a blind eye to the definitive violation of the law


Behave yourself will ya. I've never known a company so on top of taco and infringements ffs. Paying VOSA? What? Along with Royal Mail then? As with RM you are pulling many thousands of pounds worth of kit hence you cannot have a night out or you have to call when toilet is needed. ITS NOT GENERAL HAULAGE! If you dont like it then move on and stop bleating like a five year old!

And I quote
"The company that keeps drivers 8 hours in the canteen and then sends them on the road is the worst company. sending a driver on a route after so many hours is a disrespect for his life and other road users. such a driver is tired at the start and risks loss of life and health. The entire management should go to jail for such planning"

I was once on the agency RM Xmas contract. They did the same. Told them if I didn't get a job after before 7 hours I'm outta here. Had a run in with a shift manager over it. I walked. Same with you. YOU are in control as you are your own boss. Up to you to manage it simple as. On The flip side if you want the hours then hey ho.. but in the end it's up to you.

When you work for the agency it’s not a permanent job and can be there for a few months and then gone, I work for the agency and when I haven’t got work…….. that’s right I look for another job not cry like a baby and moan about the company, every job has a few members of staff that get joy in other peoples misfortune, my advice is don’t moan or worry about the job just find another plenty of work out there

[quote name="Lee"]It's agency!!. Take it you didn't understand the concept when you signed up what agency work is about? Let me guess, promised the world? As a full time employee DPD is THE BEST company I have ever worked for hands down. You will not find a better company in haulage that looks after its employees and that right there is where all you agency misunderstood the concept of agency. YOU ARE NOT FULL TIME! YOU ARE ON A ZERO HOUR CONTRACT! Some of the other comments are absolutely baffling.
"It's just before Christmas what am I going to tell my kids"..
"I'm Going to kill myself?"
