Pay Increase For C.R. England Drivers
SALT LAKE CITY, UT (TruckingNewsNow.com) (Source: CR England) — The pay increase will benefit solos, teams, and trainers in C.R. England’s National, Regional, and Training Divisions and takes effect January 31, 2019.
“Including today’s pay increase, C.R. England has invested an annualized amount of over 30 million dollars in driver pay increases in the last eight months,” said Chief Executive Officer Chad England. “This increase comes just eight months after Over the Road (OTR) drivers received the largest driver compensation increase in the 99-year history of the company. Raising pay is an indicator C.R. England is committed to providing our employees with a long-term career path they can count on financially.”
With today’s announcement, every line-haul National and Regional driver received a pay increase. This includes solos, teams, and trainers. Trainers will continue to be the highest paid group of drivers at C.R. England. In addition to these increases, the company continues to evaluate and adjust pay for its already highly paid drivers in the Dedicated and Intermodal Divisions.
C.R. England is an industry leader in length of haul and offers benefits such as detention pay, referral bonuses, and competitive health insurance plans. C.R. England also offers significant long-term career opportunities in all its divisions. About 95 percent of drivers who complete Phase 2 are trainers or in a Dedicated, Intermodal, Regional, or OTR set run. In 2018, the company added 755 new Dedicated driving jobs. Almost 2,000 C.R. England drivers get home daily or almost every day.
Through the company-sponsored One Initiative, C.R. England drivers are also able to give back to the community. With each load delivered, a meal is donated to one of 22 food banks to provide a meal to a hungry child. Over 1.6 million meals were donated in 2018.
