Jack Cooper and PMT sold?

pmtA post on autohauler shopper forums says that JHT holdings bought 60% of them. I guess they have recovered well from bankruptcy? For those of you who are unfamiliar with JHT they are Unimark and Active Truck Transport. I did a post about the closing/bankruptcy of Unimark and I think it is the second most commented on post on this blog.

Rob Says:

This was an aquisition by the previous CEO who is no longer associated with JHTH. He is the owner of ActiveCarhaul which was broken off from the JHTH company years ago.

bohica Says:

This JCT/PMT is like a soap opera. Greg May has kept his cards close to his chest, The rumors have been rampant and this has worked very well. JCT recently released a bulletin advising only Cooper and not a word about PMT. Although PMT has been reduced to a mere shadow of itself. Right now PMT is on “life support” and I think the gipper was spotted trying to kick the power cord off. The bulletin states that Cooper is joining forces with T Michael Riggs and ActiveCarhaul. This is where it gets weird, If you investigate further, Riggs is President or CEO of JHT holdings, and ActiveCarhaul is part of JHT holdings. TheCarhauler.com has a pretty good expose’ on all this convoluted mess in union carhaul section. PMT not too long ago had 190 drivers and about 35 owner operators and last friday maybe 15 drivers working on the few Honda’s out of San Bernardino and National City,

Looks like we have a new Investigative reporter on staff here.

    My husban works for JC in Arlington, Texas and no one is tell no one anything, Hs starts a layoff tomarrow. I found out by looking after one web site after another. He is a welder, and they are mecheiest union. we have not herd anything about them. Randie Loman

    My husband worked for JC/PMT out of Milpitas. No one there told us anything either; he was laid off too. We don’t even know what it means, in terms of his employment, that JHT bought 60% of PMT. It is my understanding that Active Truck Transport employees are members of local 315, which means they are part of the Teamsters Union. Still, the bloggers imply that Active Auto Transport has no seniority list for drivers or load assignments. In addition, no one from JHT has contacted us and their web site says they are currently not hiring drivers. Does anyone have even a dot of information? If enough people throw out even a dot of info, perhaps we can start connecting them and get some sort of picture.

  6. Randie Loman says:

    I am wanting to find out about their shop employees?
    Welders! are they Temsters and my husban is still on layoff and we have not herd anything from anyone.
    Not even the guys that are still working.

  7. CHEATED BY JACK COOPER says:

    Jack Cooper Transport personnel cheated me out of money for the service listed below in August of 2009. They said that they would pay by comcheck for repairs on their vehicle. No one will return calls, they all hide behind voice mails like chicken sh-ts. NO RESPONSIBILITY left in this “Organization” at all.

    SERVICE CALL TO WEBER CHEVROLET IN
    COLUMBIA ILLINOIS. DRIVER REPORTS THAT
    ONE OF THE RAMPS IS STUCK. CALLED IN BY
    LOUIE, PAYING BY COMCHECK UPON
    COMPLETION.
    WORK WITH RAMP TO GET FREED UP. RETURN
    TO SHOP.

    Thank you all at Jack Cooper, I hope you get yours in a big way.

    I use to work for cooper out of fairfax. I can tell you first hand that GREG MAY and JEFF CLEVELAND are both very shady people. They both are very dishonest and will tell you only what benifits them no matter what or whom they step on. Beware if you are thinking about working for this company. Good luck but the first ting that needs to happen is GREG and JEFF need to be terminated because basically they both are thiefs. Trust me I know them both well.

  9. Georgia says:

    I know Greg May and Jeff Cleveland very well. They are actually part of the few remaining individuals with integrity and character in the industry. I fear you have been fed some poor information because their actions speak for this.

    I was terminated from this company April 23, 1992 for “poor work performance” after 13 years of dedicated service. I received good reviews on my yearly evaluations. Go figure. This is a “good ‘ol boy” company that likes to hire friends and family members and place them in positions that they DON’T qualify for. I got the last laugh. After this company tried to deny me my unemployment benefits (that I had contributed towards for 13 years) I appealed and WON! I went on to draw my benefits for TWO YEARS while working part time as an assistant at my children’s school.
