I am getting sick of places not having a bathroom for truck drivers. They forever use the excuse of COVID but that is simply not true. This time we have Black and Decker in Jackson, TN.
Drivers are expected to relieve themselves outdoors, in PUBLIC, at below freezing temperatures. THIS IS NOT ACCEPTABLE. It also violates the 5th Amendment to the National Truck Driver BILL OF RIGHTS. It is time for this mistreatment of truck drivers to end. I wrote to Black and Decker but have received no response so we need to take action. At the bottom of this will be contacts for you to make with your Google Voice number or emails. I also want drivers to tell their companies that this is not acceptable. We will be silent NO MORE. First, education. Now, ACTION.
Please, as always be polite but be firm. Let them know that it is not acceptable to have to PEE ON THEIR BUILDING IN PUBLIC and that they are in violation of the National Truck Driver Bill of Rights for not providing a bathroom. Tell them they are being reported to the authorities and if they have further questions send them to UFCD.ORG. You could also give them my email Mark@TruckingAnswersNation.Com if you want. There are also press contacts here, let them know what is going on. Ready? Let's do it!

Let Madison County Health Department know you have to pee (or whatever) in public on a building. On THIS form you can check health department.
If you do Twitter you can retweet my message or cut and paste this one. Just takes a second.
B+D In Jackson TN forces truck drivers to pee in public outside. NO bathrooms. Reprehensible.
Be sure to include all of those @ because that is who needs to know about it.
What does your company say if you tell them you can't access a bathroom somewhere? Curious.
Now, let's get to work!
Hi! Welcome. I'm Mark and I've been a professional truck driver for over 33 years, the last 19 years at the same company. It is time that drivers got paid for every minute that we work and we are treated like the licensed professionals we are.
