Well, I would imagine truck drivers might not like the idea of putting out of a job.
Driverless tech wouldn't necessarily put them out of a job. Someone still has to help unload the trucks and I'd imagine they would still monitor the road.
I imagine it will be a long while before driverless actually means driverless, i.e. no one occupying the vehicle at all. I don't think drivers help unload, though. There are people at the endpoint who do that.
Perhaps in some cases yes, in the majority I'm going to say not. For example at shops/supermarkets in some cases those shop workers aren't allowed to touch the cage until it's come of the tailgate.
