USA Truck announced a pay raise for its regional Class A drivers that ups base pay and expands the long-term pay scale.
In addition to increases for current pay, the company has also added weekly productivity pay. James Reed, USA Truck president and CEO said that this reflects the company belief that employee compensation should be tired to results and not just experience alone.
“The pay increase includes updated and higher regional base pay, an expanded 20-year pay scale, and weekly productivity pay,” said Reed. “This is truly unique because, at USA Truck, productivity pay is now earned weekly as part of a driver’s base pay – not monthly or quarterly. We want to instill the pay philosophy of Drive More, Earn More for our drivers.”
USA Truck is also focusing on safety and has tied productivity pay to the safe operation of equipment. Each week, drivers who operate safely will be able to add up to 6 cents per mile to weekly pay.
“Depending on your location, you can earn up to 52.5 cents per mile,” said Werner Hugo, senior vice president of Trucking. “At USA Truck, there are only two jobs: Drivers and Driver Support. Our new pay program is just one example of what is new and different about USA Truck for drivers.”
