TULSA, OK -- Employees are dealing with a Christmas crisis at one Tulsa business.

Employees at Arrow Trucking tell The News On 6 they are now out of a job because the company has run out of money and is suspending operations.

Employees say the announcement came Tuesday morning, but they've seen the signs for a while now. 

Several employees told The News On 6 they haven't been paid in months and others say there's been problems with buying fuel for the truckers.

"Unfortunately my son, my first child, will be born in about four days and its three days before Christmas. I have no insurance now and I haven't been paid for over a month. Mortgage is due, bills are due," said J.P. Price, Arrow Trucking employee.

The News On 6 first heard about the possible suspending of operations late Monday night. The News On 6 contacted the company, but managers have refused to comment so far.

The News On 6 has received calls from truck drivers who say they are stranded and can't get home. Some say they're locked up at one of the company's terminals, but that Arrow Trucking won't let them leave in a company truck.

Other drivers say they're stranded along their routes after the company shut off their fuel cards.

But according to the company's voicemail, Arrow Trucking is providing bus tickets for them to go home.

A truck driver in Texas called The News On 6 and said his family bought him a plane ticket so that he can get home to Pennsylvania.

Arrow Trucking is headquartered in Tulsa, but has hundreds of employees around the country.

We're told there are about 300 people who work in the office and about 1,000 truckers.

Employees at Arrow Trucking can call the State Labor Commissioner to file a claim about getting their paychecks, 1-888-269-5353.
