    There are no pickups on Christmas Eve hence no need for a twilight sort.

    1 day layoff, you should be back to work Wed. They do this with feeders, most jobs are cancelled that start after about noon or 1pm.

    What do you mean?? They know its the only day they can do it for the year. So it makes them feel a little better.

    No picks Monday no need for anyone to do anything at night.

    If your seasonal you'll also be getting a another layoff notice next week. That one will be permanent...

    There's a skeleton shift over here on our twilight. It's mainly for car shifting and off loading send again's. We don't have a big enough building to have everything inside so we use lots of MDU's/PDC's. And since there's only 4 qualified shifter's I get to work...it's not like I couldn't use the money...

    My hub never runs a full sort on Christmas eve, skeleton operation where they grab some volunteers from Twilight and Midnight. Depending on the day it falls on they don't even bother with that. This year though, 7 pm start, shuffling around maybe 15k in volume. They expect everything to be done by 10 pm. If you don't do anything with family on Christmas eve it's not a bad thing since we don't get paid for that day as a holiday anyways.

    Most of us know that is just incidental. Fact is, no pickups so there isnt anything to sort. Sign up sheet for working punch to punch on Christmas Eve and the day after are so the company can save money not so we have more time with our family.

    Our night and twi shifts are cancelled as well, instead the preload on wednesday morning will take care of all of the send agains and the closed trailers. It's a skeleton crew with top 66 working and the rest are laid off.

    Re: hub layoff? dafuq?

    Preload is working tonight. I'm set to start at 1:30am. The buisness volume should be pretty low. The resi's should be pretty slammed. But I've learned a long time ago to never expect it to be heavy or light.

    Off on Tuesday, of course. Wensday is supposed to be real light, for obvious reasons, so they gave us the option to have it off or not. I took it off of course.
