An insult is the best description I heard today when this was conversed with a few other teamsters. Over a decade is how long I have been with the company and as far as I recall back then the preload start times where either the same everyday, or 1 day was different by 10 minutes. For atleast a few years the start times where set to be as little as 5 minutes apart. So one day it might be 4:30 and the next day it would be 4:35. Upon seeing 4:42 on the schedule every teamster I talked to couldnt believe it and thought it had to be a typo. As far as I have heard it isnt a typo, so next week the preload will start at 4:42 Tues-Fri. In case you can't figure it out, the point here is not that the start time is too late or too early, its that now they are using single minute adjustments for the start times. Stock market at an all time high, UPS stock reached an all time high about a week ago, which is higher then the peak in 2004, and yet christmas turkeys gone, water bottles and t-shirts gone, any sort of food or cook-out is basically extinct, and now management has been reduced to single minute adjustments for the start times. I'm not surprised they are stooping this low, but its comforting to know that others feel that this is an absurd insult, instead of giving a smirk and saying "well what are ya gonna do" Are other part timers seeing this behavior from management? Our preloaders start anywhere from 5-10 minutes after the unload starts, so some of us would be starting at 4:57, are you kidding me? and if they punched in at 5:00 of course management would claim they are late.
