Currently all crude oil loads in nd are docked $50 per load due to alleged overbilling in the recent past to freepoint commodities who buys the oil.
There is speculation that qc has already paid the overbilling fee and attempting to recoup this cost by charging its current drivers. I know for a fact that no deductions in nd are legal unless the employee agrees in writing?
Furthermore qc has stated on 3 different dates that winter rates will go into effect increasing barrell rates by 20%. No increase has gone into effect as od 12/5/13? The latest specularion is that the increase will only be. .20 Cent per barrell.
Lastly, qc signed a contract with freepoint commodities capping wait time (the time a driver waits to unload) at 2 hours. All loads go to a rail facility that accounts for 20% of all oil in nd where average wait times are 4 hours.
Bad company-bad contract.
Qc paid $68 million plus stock options to the previous owner in order to get into the crude oil hauling business in nd
