    Get em. I'm beat and my first vacation isn't til Sept. Being at the bottom of seniority list sucks. I'm to the point I'll take a day off here and there.

    We have to call in in the morning. They gave three guys off for option days and then are going to offer the more senior drivers off first. I know a couple guys who's routes are going to be cut tomorrow who are below me in seniority. If they end up not working and I do, there might quite possible be some grievances filed.

    If they weren't cutting more routes than they have full time drivers for they wouldn't have this issue.

    Why not have everybody work 8 and out instead of screwing everybody?

    Yea, I got carried away thinking logically. I have to remember our management team was trained UPS style.

    How about everyone shows up,(they're on the start schedule) don't call in, and see if everyone gets 8 and they run more routes.

    The last time we were told to call it was to tell people to come in and just do their pus. I'm either coming in at start time or not coming at all. Put a big in the center manager ear this morning "hey all my businesses are going to be closed tomorrow. If you don't need me I'm ok with staying home."

    You know what, I'm almost tempted to tell them I want to work as well, how many routes can you put on one truck..... Curious minds want to know!!!!!

    Depends on local of course but heard these words many many times. "Seniority gives you the right to work not the right not to work."

    ARTICLE 64 – TIME OFF UNPAID
    When time off is available it shall be offered in seniority order by
    classification as long as it does not result in economic cost to the
    Employer.

    Fell free to recite this tomorrow morning for those blessed enough to be in the south.

    Yep no such language in the central.


    Although they could easily use the economic cost line.

    They try every now and then, reminding them all routes are dispatched according to routes, not drivers abilities puts an end to that.
