    I tried to take a option day but can not because ups is saying we are still in peak and we are working all drivers yet contract show peak is only until Dec 25th. Were is work coming from all my pickups are closed or close early. Any one know?

    This new contract allows UPS to keep all the peak help until 2 weeks into the next year .
    So on 12-26 it is still business as usual .
     
  3. They will cut a ton of routes,that day. Especially,if you do not have alot of pickup volume. Alot of my customers are taking a 5 day weekend. Plus we don't pickup on Xmas eve.

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    We are only running 22 areas. The only "work" will be air, send agains and pickups. I have put in for and should get that day off.

    bleedinbrown58 ahhh....the mouth breathers

    Yup...they're forcing us in for a BS 4 or 5 hour day...which I wouldn't mind so much if we could start at 3 or 4am...not midnight.
     
  6. It will be an easy day. Work the easy day,take the hard ones off.

    To the OP: On that day, seniority is your friend.

    I usually get the 26th off because of seniority. We were told at the PCM yesterday...attendance is mandatory...no exceptions.

    I don't know if you've been here 9 months or 9 years.
    It takes ground 5 days to get from East Coast to West Coast
    Just because you have no pickups on Xmas Eve doesn't mean that work still isn't going to reach you from farther points in the country.

    Our schedule came out. 10 of us are off. A few more on call. The OPs manager is clueless.

    Wrong. Nothing moves Christmas Eve therefore no additional volume.

    Ummmmmmm
    We don't pick up additional volume but Feeders is still working during the day while we are delivering Xmas Eve

    Is this something I'm wrong on ?????
    By your assumption, Feeders has 2 days off then ????
