Apparently the flavor of the month in my district is cutting back overtime. In my 25+ years at FedEx, management has never been successful at doing that. The area in which I live is too transient and there are too many job opportunities. So, the new tactic to cut OT is to mandate that NOONE, under any circumstances, no exceptions, can work more than 11 hours in a day. What the genius managers in my station are doing is, let's say you work 11 hours and 15 minutes, they will move that 15 minutes to your break, thus TAKING 15 minutes of paid time and making it UNPAID. I've had three different people tell me this has happened to them, granted, one okayed it first, figuring he would get the time back on another day by sticking it to them. Another tactic they've tried to use was, they asked an AM courier to pick up some dropboxes for the PM side because they had no one. He informed them he would go over 11. Their response, Put a note on the DB's that they were picked up early and bring the freight back. He refused to do it that way, waited for the ready times and brought back a ton of unprocessed freight. That put him at 11.5 hours. They TRIED to shave his time, but he balked and they backed off. All I can say to all this is, WTF?! I'm hoping I go over 11 hrs one day to start raising hell. So far, my manager is making sure that doesn't happen. Lol. Anyone else having this stupid kind of stuff going on in their station?
