    My current 9.5 list status expires this week and i feel confident I'll be back on it by Friday. We have:

    9 on vacation

    2 Terminated this year,positions not filled

    2 retired this year,positions not filled

    3 on Disability

    3 routes more than normal were cut today,and our center manager has told the steward for the next 3 months he will pay grievances rather than honor 8 hour requests ,and gave the impression he'd rather pay for exceeding hours for those on the 9.5 list rather than putting more people on.
    All i heard was CHA CHING!

    Sounds like a tough but profitable summer in store.

    It looks like yet another phenomenon that we now call " the summer peak phenomenon " the most wonderful time of the year.

    It seems to me that if UPS is more than happy to pay the grievences for exceeding hours, then we're not paid enough.

    With the way the market is going, I could use some extra cash to buy at a discount.

    I put about 50% of my investments into cash about 4 weeks ago.
    20% that is still in the market are bear hedge funds.
    My financial adviser agreed to the cash play at least through the end of the summer.
    I still dollar cost average in new investment funds and I plan to dollar cost average my cash starting in September ... we'll see.

    Note: I implemented the above because I am approaching retirement age ... unless you are within 5 years of retirement, I would not recommend this strategy.

    It sounds like I'm glad I am where I am. I want 9.5's and 8 hrs honored, NOT penalty pay.

    I had zero problems going over 9.5 this week,as i expected and I'll fill out the paperwork with the steward tomorrow.It'll make my center manager's day! I'm encouraging some of the younger drivers as well to get on the list,rather than complain every morning and evening when i see them about the hours they are working
