    Ive heard all kinds of rumors from people being laid off to different shifts running at different times including working 4-10's instead of 5 days.
    Supposedly a big management meeting next week sometime with 'news' to follow.

    Anyone have any leaks?

    I'd gladly work 4-10s, beats 5-10s any week, IMO.
    32X 28.89=924.24
    +8x 43.33=346.68

    I think I would forego 9.5's to work 4 10's and have a 3 day weekend.

    On your day off you would have to preload, local sort, and shuttle air......at PT wages.

    I'd hate to burst your bubble driver but usually a 4-10 schedule is 40 hours at straight time - no overtime rate after the 8th hour just 10 hours at straight time - thats how it is in feeders anyway :wink2:

    Thats the way it works for 22.3s as well.

    I don't think a re-neg of the contract would fly too well. Besides the one we have now favors to company more than any I've ever worked under.

    :wink2: I agree. I would love 3 day weekends. Then again, it all depends on which day they want you to take off. 4 10's suck when you get Wed, Sat, Sun off.

    No renegotiation coming.

    During a Q&A session, John McDevitt was asked whether UPS was asking the Teamsters for consessions due to the bad economy.

    He said no, and explained the many reasons why that was not going to happen.
