    They've cut a ton of routes in our center and combined pickups. I expect to have close to 35 pickup stops and plenty of work.

    Tomorrow and the following Monday are supposed to be really nasty here. They cut both Sundays.

    Yeah, tomorrow's going to suck. Run a few errands in the morning, lunch at Applebee's, maybe a movie in the afternoon. May have to shovel a bit of snow in the evening.

    Oh, you were talking about work? Yeah, tomorrow's going to suck.:wink2:

    Yea, cutting routes everywhere. But, my boss told me thursday he has enough extras he was giving the guys off that bailed him out this peak. And asked if I wanted off? Kind of a no brainer, with all the crazy plans they are doing.

    Day off.

    They are forcing from the bottom up. I think we will have 15 drivers on road.

    I am out of days but will make up some of the hours by working New Year's Eve.

    We have very little volume to deliver, but need to put out a full number of pickup routes. A lot of junior employees have been given a late (noon or 1:00) start time, and have been told that if they want their 8 hrs they will have to work in the hub.

    I believe our building is having 19 drivers working with some drivers coming in the afternoon just to do pickups. I looks like it might be a hour worked day like thurdays was lst week and this week will be.

    I'm going to have to call in the morning to comfirm the start time I know I was on the list to work so I really didn't read it I was assuming it was 8:55 but now I'm thinking it might be 8:15.

    I took the day off. We are only delivering send agains and air plus making pick-ups. Tuesday is the day I am not looking forward to.

    I expect to run a rural route all week, and possibly more if his back doesn't heal, unless a higher seniority driver wants it.

    Monday could be a 250 mile+ day.

    ouch.

    I am sure all the peak spits will be gone but so will the peak seaon temps. Still I expect to start the day on the bench. But I bet enough of the drivers who hold bid routes will want the day off that I will be able to work.

    Still, after 4 days over 12 hours in a row last week it would not be very hard to go home with a layoff day.
