    Well last week our center virtual time study came out and all routes benefited except 2. I lost a ton of time allowance in one area. It was my favorite route in 23 years! Good thing for me the routes go up for bid in March. I got screwed like this on my route before this route that I was happy with for 11 years! :angry:

    Everyone will lose a little time next month when the pay raise goes into effect. Happens every time.

    Better question would be how much bulk and how far away from delivery point do you have to walk?

    OK ... I thought you were talking about a 4 minute allowance for getting a signature, not for a stop.

    The way it was explained to me it was just for the signature part. :sad-very:

    When our center had our time study not one route gained any time. Kinda strange to me. You would think that at least one route would gain some time.

    Our center had the new "allowances" from our time study go into affect and about half of our routes gained just a little bit of time. The rest lost allot of time. Well, wouldn't you know it??!?!.....Most of the routes that lost time are run by drivers that get between one and two hours of bonus. Well, make that...USED TO MAKE between one and two hours of bonus. LOL! Some people just don't understand that running, skipping lunch, and running up miles, will always catch up with them in the end. Listening to those guys piss and moan about how much time they lost and how UPS was "stealing money" from them was kind of like hearing a couple of spoiled brats whine about their parent's cutting their allowances in half. I'm all for fair allowances but some people seem think that they are entitled to a 10 hour paid day that only takes 8 hours to run simply because they have been cheating the system for so long and were getting away with it. Well, guess what? Its over.

    I've heard that before from bonus drivers who have had their standards whacked. One guy actually wanted to file a grievance to get the time put back on his route and when I tried to explain to him how and why that was a total non starter he went on a rant about how useless the union was. What can ya do?
