    wouldn't be surprised the way things are going. Thanksgiving is gone. I'm already working 56 hours a week and they wont be happy till its 62.5 .

    I hope you people know whats coming. 365 24/7 and seniority wont mean anything when they are short handed.

    going out next year anyways so you boys and girls have FUN!

    Just got home from the Labor Day parade. Mostly IBEW and Steel Workers and AFSMEE marching. One ABF tractor trailer rig that really needed to be washed. No Teamster representatives again this year.

    We will be forced to work Christmas Day in the next decade or even sooner...before we ever have to worry about working on Labor Day.

    There is not even a remote chance I'll ever work Christmas. I do Christmas eve under protest. They can't have Christmas.
