    This has been an issue before.

    Deliveries are typically very light on Dec 26th, meaning a long break between deliveries and pickups.

    What is the right thing to do: take extra unpaid break beyond the 50 minutes, or get paid for the downtime between the end of break and pickups?

    As far as I'm concerned if we are being told to sit and wait for pickups, we should be gettin paid to sit and wait.

    You get whatever contracted break and lunch you normally get. The rest is on the clock.

    Yeah I'll take my hour break but u bet all the rest will be paid and it'll be at least 8 hours I'm paid for. Hoping for the day off though.

    We cut 34 routes. I'm sure the guys that are working are going to get the sausage.

    The more management screws up with dispatch the more you make, this is just another example.

    I took an extra hour of unpaid break. I got a message that I could drive around and pull stops off a bunch of people and drive back for the pickups. I was warm and comfy, so I drank some more coffee and chillaxed.

    Have them set up a meet point without using your phone, it will take them an hour just to figure that out.

    No need for extra break here. Had missed businesses and worked 11 hours.

    You get allowed time as long as the wheels are turning.

    I know its too late now....Just make sure you message in you have down time, and ask What do you want me to do?
     
  13. I did this today. Last pickup 6pm, no earlier. Finished at 3:25. Messaged that I was finished, waiting for instructions and willing to help. They sent me across town to take 6 stops off someone. Did it, got back to my area around 5:15, messaged again that I was waiting for instructions, I heard nothing. Drank coffee and waited out front of my 6pm pickup... What a great day
