    Well as we all know silly season is here and from what I gathered today's building is now going to following the 70hr/8day rule. Questions.... I feel I am knowledgable with hours of service but never dealt with this.

    Is this company wide or just my building?

    Is this legal to decide to change the hour rule format of which you follow?

    I was told "There is excemtion for retail package delivery under 100 air miles" first statement to that is we aren't retail.

    I'm just trying to get some insight on all this seems fishy we seem to do whatever the hell we want. Any insight is greatly appreciated thanks in advance!

    I just heard this from my unloader tonight when I parked my package car. And being that you and I are based in the same HUB, I wonder if it's just some sort of rumor someone is spreading.

    Well we all know how rumors are but apparently a feeder driver on the on call board heard it from one of the feeder managers. Again this came from someone else as I was not at the building at the time but we will see I guess.

    It's country wide. However they cannot force you to work over 60/5 which is in the contract.
    Also if you work 70/8 you'll end up on a rolling clock of DOT hours you'll have to manage.

    Last week they changed our break period from on duty not driving to off duty. They are doing whatever they can to give us more hours

    Ours have always been off duty.

    Agreed, ours have always been off duty that's why when you calculate your hours you have to figure for the ten minutes being .17 hundredths a day. Add that to your clock throughout the week so you don't go over your 60

    UPS will do what they want. I urge everyone to continue to vote for Hoffa/hall or anyone like them.

    Various buildings ,if not all,are going to the 70/8 HOS. They can not require you to work more than your 60/5. They have been opening it up to try and get drivers to work it. We went to it the week after thanksgiving.

    I wouldn't worry about until you have a pcm or training in the DIAD about changes to HoS. About a month ago we had training on this and it's still 60hrs, minus lunch that's not paid, in a week. I know some locals get paid breaks which would confuse things but everything in the southern supplement concerning driving is unpaid so that time doesn't count towards your 60.

    Be careful with that, the IVIS records it as off duty but the company's logs that they have to show DOT records it as on duty not driving (because it's paid). We just had a guy violate his 60 because he was relying on the IVIS.
