A California trucking company is closing down effective April 30th according to a WARN Act notification filed with the state. Rogers Trucking filed the notice January 30th, 2019 although it is now coming to light.
Rogers Trucking has 131 power units and 132 drivers according to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration and has been in business for over forty years serving most of California. The Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act documentation shows the company lists 135 employees to be permanently let go effective April 30th, 2020.
Rogers Trucking has been a fixture in most of California for the past 40 years, “has successfully survived deregulation because we are soundly managed and our employees are acutely aware that good courteous service, based on teamwork and competitive rates, will keep us strong on the California marketplace” according to their website.
Rogers Trucking’s drivers were members of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters Local 70.
