    I'm a driver but they want to learn me a new route so they made me a driver helper today for 4hrs. Do i get driver pay and guaranteed 8hrs? I already clocked in on diad 9am start time as a driver not helper.

    Or call Mom. I'm sure she can unload with both barrels on the center manager.

    Don't know if your union is different from the 1 im in but if your f.t. then you get paid the same rate regardless what your doing. In my situation im T.C.D. and they paid me 10 a hr and 1 check paid me 8.50 a hr when I was a helper I asked steward and filed a grievence they gave me a pay adjustment by next payday just look at your check, and go from there in my area they still have to pay me T.C.D. driver pay...Now just waiting on my penalty pay lol.

    Yep. Driver pay for being a helper ,if you are a driver. I love it when this happens. I've done it a handful of times over the years.

    I thought if you were forced to be a helper then you were paid as a driver. But if you volunteer to be a helper then you only get helper pay.

    I could be wrong though.

    Shift Inhibit He who laughs last didn't get it.

    did you put pay code as 05 or 06? if 05 you got paid for actual work hours (4hrs) . if 06 , you got paid 8hrs for working 4

    If we are used as a helper because we are extra, are we still entitled to our 8 hours though?. Technically, I suppose that's considered a layoff.
