Just curious as a cover driver in a bonus center do I get a bonus? 10 hr day coming in at 8hr?
Our CD don't.
And your center is a bonus? Any idea if all centers follow this same protocol?
I'm in 710 and yes cover drivers do IF you have made seniority. If you are a temp or casual as they are called you do not.

Yes we are bonus. I think the term "Cover Driver" has different meanings here on this board. We have Cover Drivers=PT and Swing Drivers=FT. Swing Drivers get bonus Cover Drivers do not.
I'm going to say I will not get a bonus. I am a loader and air driver as well. But this is my first time on road as a cover so I do not have señority
Bonus is over rated.
you're screwed now
that 10 hr day is now YOUR 8 hr day... pssst, take a lunch
If you can get a self granted 8 hour day, why not?
I'll skip my lunch to spend dinner home with the family
I guess I'm a swinger then, a singer with a big bonus.
Yeah, what he said. It's the same way in my center.
Only if you don't make it.
Bonus is a hard thing to get anymore. As they continue to tighten allowances just running scratch is tough enough. Our center use to have quite a few bonus drivers now it seems everyone is always over allowed.
If you say so.
You're fairly new if I remember correctly. You'll learn. Hopefully...
In our center, PT cover drivers, regardless of seniority, do not get bonus compensation, much like Johnny's center.
Are you a qualified senority driver or a seasonal/single day vacation coverage driver. This matters.
To many contracts for anyone to answer unless they are in the same local.
Spending 5minutes at work engaging a few drivers and your steward should get you the answer you are looking for.
Here full-time bid drivers and unassigned drivers can make bonus. Temporary part-time cover drivers (TCDs) can't. That's why I tell all of ours to stop running all day and skipping their lunches. Especially considering the fact that on most routes its difficult for full-timers to make bonus any more. Courtesy of said behavior of bonus babies in the past. And these are the same people that whine about the company "stealing our time from us."
So this kid runs a route for the first time ever and comes in 2 hours under? I would sure hate to be the one after him who has to clean up that mess.
