Arrow Trucking news is not good for employees, as the Arrow Trucking Company is closing its doors. The Arrow Trucking Company is rumored to be bankrupt now, but it seems that Arrow Trucking really didn't care about their employees in the end. It is being reported that some Arrow Trucking employees didn't find out they were out of a job until their gas cards were rejected while they were on the job across the country.

But air travelers get a special bill of rights.
Didn’t care about employees? What about shippers?
The employees should sell the freight for gas money home and park the trucks in their front yards with for sale signs on them.
I blame obama
Classy. Wonder what special packages management got n the way out.
obama will save them.
hope and change
No. Didn't you get the memo from the Whitehouse? It is Bush's fault!
Demanding that employees return company owned vehicles at their own expense under threat of criminal theft charges, is EXTORTION. Where is the DA,Attorney General?
But profit is evil, so they got what they deserved.
All companies that earn profits deserve to go bankrupt.
Only non-profit companies deserve to exist.
Like the federal government. It's non-profit.
Seems that the trucks can be taken to dealerships and the dealer will provide a bus ticket home. Unfortunately you have to be near a dealership to do that.
Another problem is drivers with a dog, busses won’t take them. Fortunately it sounds like owner operators are stepping up and offering rides in the right direction.
I’m happy to hear that the owner-operators are stepping up. One irresponsible management, though. They had to have seen this coming and should have unwound the company before in got into this mess. I’m guessing it’s closely held (a family company?) and owners and managers are one and the same and couldn’t face the music.
LOL...I bet the Teamster thought so.
For Sale: Can be seen at Joe’s Truck Stop. Mack truck parts, tires and chains. Whole trailer load of merchandise. Cash and carry only. No offers refused.
At least Arrow could tell the employees that they were going out of business...and could have told the customers as well.
If I were the employees...I would hang on to the company trucks until all employee pay due is paid. Doubt that law enforcement is going to waste their time rounding up all those with company trucks
If so, a new meaning of the American flag: "Screw you."
They are busy as they all have their Lips firmly sealed to Obamas rear end.
‘KLTV out of Texas is reporting that there was a message for Arrow truckers sent out that they have until Thursday morning to return their trucks or they will have theft charges filed against them.”
Good luck with those theft charges.
