Road and truck safety is compromised. Contractors are not being held liable for their illegal actions. Contractors are knowingly forcing dump truck operators to skip ministry scales.Road infrastructure is being compromised costing the public . Operators are being held responsible for the weight even though they have no bearing on how much a contractor puts in his box. These illegal actions are being done on private, commercial, residential and government infrastructure jobs.Ministry of Transportation bureaucrats have been made aware of the problem officially since March of 2014 but no actions have been taken We have set a deadline for the government to take action before Feb 15 2015 or we will take our case to the general public.
The ministry has decided to include vehicles or vehicle combinations trasporting excavated materials in the current enforcement deferral in place for the aggregate industry. Click Here for more details
ODTA Members are urged to go back to work starting Sunday June 1st 2014 after 12:30 P.M. as we have a majority of contractors agreeing with our contract. We are compiling a list of approved contractors shortly please review the approved contractors tab for more information.
