At our center we have been directed to never take credit for driver sort and load time. When preload is not finished on time or we have late air, and the drivers finish this sort and load work - we are required to record this time as AM time. In other words, drivers get no credit for our planned day when we do this work. The preload supervisor gets the benefit of all the "free" labor from the drivers to artificially inflate the effectiveness of the preload. The effectiveness of the preload is now dependent on the the days volume and not how well the preload is working if drivers do this work. The heavier the better for them, as drivers doing more sort and load now makes the preload look good. To me this wrong. The drivers get screwed and the preload may look good when they may be underperforming. What is wrong with recording what we actually do during the day rather than lying about what we are doing during the day? I have attached the document they gave us telling to not record sort and load time.
