ALEXANDRIA, Va. (April 24, 2018) -- The Truck Renting and Leasing Association (TRALA) condemns the senseless act of violence that claimed innocent lives and left many injured in Toronto yesterday. As the voice of the truck renting and leasing industry, TRALA is particularly concerned when one of its members' vehicles is used in a violent event such as what happened yesterday.
TRALA received word from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) today confirming that short-term rental agreements signed on or before April 19 would be allowed to use paper logs rather than electronic logging devices (ELDs) until the end of the rental term.
TRALA IN THE NEWS - On April 16, 2018 the Truck Renting and Leasing Association (TRALA) submitted an amicus brief to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) in the case of Velox Express v. Jeannie Edge. This case involves the misclassification of drivers/couriers as independent contractors and not as employees which was found to be a violation of the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) by an Administrative Law Judge during the Obama Administration.
