Awards consist of certificates, patches and gifts selected for each specific year of service. Drivers must attend a minimum of two safety meetings per calendar year. We have meetings approximately every three months. Awards also contingent on a "satisfactory" MVR..

The drivers receive gifts from time to time to show our appreciation for loyalty to the company. We also have a company family picnic in the summer and a driver appreciation week.

Tri-Union Express offers discounted insurance packages, including non-trucking, physical damage, workman's compensation, health/medical plans, disability insurance and occupational-accident insurance.

Most importantly, we believe in an open door policy where drivers can stop in or call if they have complaints or if they want to make suggestions. We are "hands on" management and try to treat all drivers with respect. Our belief is that without the drivers there is no company.
