I.E. has been mandating an ever increasing stops per car number in our center. The only way to meet it is to bust out routes and load down the drivers on road. Every driver in our center routinely goes out with stop counts that are peak season levels. Close to half the drivers have filed to be on the opt. out 9.5 list. Once filed the sup's start 3 day rides. Morale is terrible and getting worse. Mgt. says their hands are tied as they have to meet these numbers or lose their jobs. It sucks going to work every day knowing you'll likely not get home before 8:30pm. Is this going on elsewhere or are we just a targeted center?
