    We've had a couple of drivers (feeder, NJ district "north") laid off for about a month although there were no layoffs this week. Haven't seen the schedule yet for next week suspect there might be, there were a lot of vacations this week, not a lot in the near future.

    Hey Krash, where ya been? Why's TNet down?

    We had a bunch of Feeders back in Package (about 9), but they all came back in the bid thanks to several bidding out.

    I'm the only person laid off in my area. With the bid I got bump to a different center so hopefully I'll be back working soon. The only thing that going suck is that I use to drive 2 miles to work now it's going to be 50 + each way.

    Most of our lower seniority Feeder drivers have been bumped back down to Package. They were told it will be Summer before any are called back.

    Feel your pain. My commute is 49 miles one-way in Atlanta traffic. I got it all figured out though - go in early and leave late.:knockedout:

    We have had lay offs since last march on and off. And again they started 1/4/10, I find it funny that they where laying people off while still using seasonal helpers/drivers and sups to work. Its all been grieved and every lay off that has been deadlocked has an arbitration date set starting at the end of March. We have around 300 22.3s off right now and about 40 jobs not filled according to the contract and untop of it forcing them to work hard/hard.

    Luckily I did not leave the office until 7:00 pm that day so it did not affect me ... they were still talking about it on the radio though.

    From my experience, Atlanta driving always had that nascar feel. Lane jumping without using directionals is the norm. Adding the circus only enhances the ride.

    Would you prefer they just lay them off completely? If the work isnt there... the work isnt there.
