Star Fleet contractors speak to Indiana General Assembly for SB 130
In 2018 work began on Senate Bill 130. The bill would officially establish “drive-away” drivers as independent contractors and not as employees of recreational vehicle transport companies. Sen. Blake Doriot of Syracuse authored the bill and with help from members of the transport industry including Star Fleet Trucking President, Joel Pladson; Director of Finance, John Stooksbury; and Safety Director Trish Nowak. Also, a big thank you to Independent contractors William & Johnny-Sue Rowe and Tracy & Marcee Teeters who spent many hours in Indianapolis with Star Fleet Staff in front of the Senate sub-committee and House Sub-committee giving testimonies on the subject. This bill ensures the Independent contractor the independence to take trips of their choosing, no forced dispatch and many other advantages that go along with being an Independent contractor.
