401(k) Increase (11/22/17)

401k

Your 401(k) participation through Decker is designed to help you achieve your retirement goals. We’re very pleased to announce that effective 11/20/17, the company has increased the employer match from 20% to 30% (up to a maximum of 8% salary deferral).

For example, an employee who is making $35,000 and deferring 8% of their wage will see a $280 increase in Company match alone over the course of a year.

Current participants will receive the higher employer contribution beginning 11/20/17 – there is no need to do anything to receive this increase, the increased match will be calculated in your December 1 paycheck. However, if you’d like to increase your personal deferral, you can call Wells Fargo at 1-800-728-3123 or loginto your retirement account at www.wellsfargo.com/retirement. If you previously opted out of the 401(k) but would now like to participate, you may call Wells Fargo at the number above to be re-enrolled.


Professional Drivers,

To provide you with better maintained equipment and quicker service we have made a few changes at our Fort Dodge Terminal. We have assigned more mechanics to the inspection lane and ask they perform more thorough inspections.  If they encounter light duty repairs, we are fixing them in the lane, so you won’t have to check in at the tractor or trailer shop.  As a result, you may encounter longer wait times in the inspection lane but overall less time waiting for repairs while you are at the Fort Dodge Terminal.  If long-term repairs or PM’s are required, the respective shop will know immediately after you leave the inspection lane.  You can all be rest assured that when you leave Fort Dodge, our equipment will be safe and well maintained.

Lastly, all second shift mechanics will work out of the inspection lane until 11:30 p.m. as the tractor and trailer shops close at 5:30 p.m. We have the same campus hours and same number of mechanics; they will just be in one building after 5:30 p.m. to become more efficient and for everyone’s safety.

We appreciate all you do and thank you for your patience as we roll out these new processes and procedures.

Eric Peters; Vice President of Fleet Maintenance
