    Got a feeling many of us will be. Thoughts? At least it's doubletime w 8hr guarantee in this area. It's sad that it's even being considered, but cant say I'm surprised.

    We have a sign up sheet in my center. The pay rate will either be double time and a half or triple time.

    $100/hr to work on a Sunday? Yes please.

    center manager mentioned it at Thursday's PCM. He said that he told his bosses he did not think we needed to do it. That said, I think he tossed it out there so that we are not surprised when it is announced next week.

    "Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord your God. In it you shall do no work: you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates. For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it" (Exodus:20:8-11). I won't be in...

    7 punches are doubletime, you'll also need to work Saturday to get it. The problem is if you do, you can't reset.

    No way in hell I am doing it for less than double time.

    Keep in mind that Christmas is that Thursday so the 60/70 won't be an issue.

    Told us this am that they were taking volunteers for next Sunday and it would be paid straight time since it's the first day of week. If you work the following Friday it would be paid time and a half.

    The 60 starting on Sunday would be correct but the previous weeks time would need a rest, working that Saturday, then Sunday wouldn't allow for said reset. Working Sunday through Christmas week is fine however considering Christmas day would be your reset.
     
  9. Im not working Sunday...Period! force me im calling off. Thats my impasse.

    2 stops an hour , lets be realistic 4 u. I think UPS wants a little publicity so it looks like we care about getting it done.
