    I've heard that drivers that are being laid off during the freight slow season can inquire about working for package during peak.

    We got a message from package Friday asking for help during the Holiday season. .Atlanta has a sign up sheet. .I ran only 500 miles last week and about 2000 in the last 3 weeks but they want cut the run so I can bump back in the city

    I'm a city driver and just got a layoff letter yesterday in the mail. To my understanding it means I'm laid off from driving, but can still work the dock. Regardless, I got cleared to run for small pack as soon as next week which I don't mind because I worked there for 7 years p/t and will be nice seeing some familiar faces at my old building rather just here and there sometimes at customers.
