    So,
    Where does it say that we have to work that Friday?

    Is it in the Contract?

    Was it a Company or Union Decision?

    in our building, nothing will probably change as they will ask for Volunteers, but if they do not get enough people to volunteer, can they force you to work????

    It's a regular working day, at least according to UPS.

    From what I have been told we will get our 8 hours for the holiday and will be paid straight time for the first 8 and time and a half thereafter for hours worked. The pay rate may vary based on where you work.

    Those of you who think it will be a light day are in for a rude awakening.

    No one can force you to work. Just use the day off to look for another job.

    It is a normal workday. Do not pass go. Do not collect $100.

    I find this info a little cloudy and I will explain. In the past if you worked the day after thanksgiving you received 8 hours for the holiday plus time and one half for all hours worked. How could they pay you less than current holiday pay language?

    We have always been paid for the holiday and straight time if we worked.

    Did not know that. Seems like you're the only one saying that. Is that what it says in your supplement about a 6th punch etc. I'm just trying to see of somehow you're not being paid correctly.

    Check your supplement. In the Central, if delivering air on a holiday, it's straight time, but ground deliveries move the rate to doubletime.

    How would the Friday after Thanksgiving be considered a sixth punch?

    I disagree, back when they offered that day at straight time(or 1.5 time, can't remember which) for air only, they had to force people to work, but a few contracts ago when it went to double time, they didn't have to force anyone to deliver anymore.

    Rainman Its all good.

    Where I am it's holiday pay, plus time +1/2 if you're drafted to work, straight time if you volunteer.


    Kmart sux. So does Walmart. And Orion.
     
  18. Time and a half here!
    You can do time worked or request 8.

    If you are drafted,you can demand 8 hours!,that usually shortens the list a little bit!

    Your right! I was just trying to understand how if Friday is a paid holiday in upstate's case, that would already be 5 days paid and you are working on hours over forty before you punch in on Friday.
