Why this petition matters

Started by Riza Arziman

Ontario's independent dump truck drivers are worried about their livelihoods and putting food on the table for their families!

Regulations have been in full effect starting January 1st, 2020 which requires dump trucks manufactured prior to 2011 to undergo expensive retrofits; costing up to $40,000.00. This means they are to operate under significantly reduced capacities or to be taken off the road after 15 years of operation.

This makes no sense as the average lifespan of a dump truck is 20 - 25 years. Manufacturers began to use new types of truck components starting in 2011. All trucks manufactured previously should have been grandfathered by the government for the full life span of the truck. While exemptions were made for other trucks to allow them to operate for their full life span, this same accomodation was not made for dump trucks. To read more about this matter, please refer to the link below.

As dump truck drivers and working class citizens, we deserve to be heard and recognized. Don't let the government dump on us. Dump trucks move the economy! Please sign this petition for change. WE WANT EQUALITY!

COVID is hurting our industry too. We ARE the working people.
