Are the $40 Trip Rate and $50 Short Trip Rate Retroactive?

Are the $40 Trip Rate and $50 Short Trip Rate Retroactive?

OBCCTC May 26, 2016 Repealed $40 Trip Rate Bulletin:

The Container Trucking Regulation (BC Reg 248/2014) which came into force on December 22, 2014 established certain rates of remuneration for truckers performing container trucking services for licensees. These rates included the following minimum rates:

  • no less than $40 per trip for directly employed operators (section 10); and
  • no less than $50 per trip for short trips performed by independent operators (section 12(2)).

These particular rates were only in effect from December 22, 2014 to May 13, 2015, when they were repealed by BC Reg 72/2015 (amendments to the original Container Trucking Regulation). These rates did not have retroactive application prior to December 22nd, 2014. In this bulletin I will refer to these rates together as the “Trip Rates”.
