    Who else has the Peak Slackers? Those purposely trying to run out of hours.

    We started at 8:00am yesterday, great jump on the day I was done at 1:15pm with only picks ups remaining. In the building at 6:00pm a drivers calls saying I'll over 12. With only 58 stops left and a helper with you? On-road looks at Telematics. Driver did 3 stops in the last hour.

    ARE YOU KIDDING ME?

    Shame on them. Fire them and let someone more deserving of the position have a shot at a glory!

    I usually hate when someone says this but.... who cares!

    We work are butts off all year. Peak comes and we get helpers and management backs off. If people wanna slow down I say let them. He only has a little over a week left to enjoy himself anyways.

    The worst slacker in our hub normally calls off because he thinks he's sick. At least he's now getting paid to stand still at the hub.

    He was probably taking his lunch between the 4th and 6th hour per contract

    I say mind your own business and who cares what any other driver is doing. It's obvious that it is not affecting you if you are back to the building in time for you to be sitting next to on road as he looks at telematics

    What do I care what others do, or don't do? Doesn't affect me at all.

    Do you often find yourself having to help others through out the year?

    We used to have drivers who would look at the OR and see what other drivers did, and make comments about it, or see how many hours So and So got. Personally, I don't think it's anyone's business except the driver in question and management. Sounds like a management wannabe who is trying to impress the suits. butt out.

    Shifting Contents Most Help Needed

    We have a guy in my loop who currently has less combined stops than I have residential stops.

    He is a piece of :censored2: who can't even do his own job.

    You all are right though, it's none of our bussiness.

    During the year managment usually let's him hang until all hours of the night and I go about my day with out giving him a second thought as he refuses offers of help to try to teach managment a lesson.

    This peak though, they put in two seasonal routes that have taken off three quarters of his route.

    Still really it's none of my business even though now those two seasonal routes cannot take work off anybody else in the loop like they have in years past.

    Still really not any of my business I do my route and I go home.

    whenever he gets done early he doesn't call anyone, he doesn't offer help, he just punches out and heads out the door.

    The problem comes in when I am out till 9, 10 o'clock, away from my family and this no good piece of crap is home by 6 PM every night at managements direction.

    See, because they told him when you're done early don't call anyone just go home.

    He bid the route knowing how many stops were on it he deserves to do the work not the rest of us! He is one hell of a model union brother
