    Just curious because I am planning to schedule my vacation at my full time job around that time. Not sure if it is different in each area or all the same.

    He didn't say he was a driver or preloader. If he works in a hub he may not have to work. Do you normally work Fridays?

    I usually work monday-friday 4:30-8:45ish (Im aware the start time will be much different that time of year though). I load 90% of the time, occasionally I will unload though. What do you guys mean about OT? Is pay different on that day?

    You're working I'm sure. Depends what local you're in....ask your steward about the pay rate.
