    So, are you still filing them during peak? I've been pretty tolerant when my sup has come to take work off me because he was using an hourly helper with him, but today an on-car (not mine) shuttled some misloads out to me in a uhaul by himself. Probably gonna file.

    Man I'll tell you, normally I'd be the first to file on something like that. Supervisors don't touch packages or do bargaining unit work point blank period, but it's peak, let it go. In the regular season, file it right in front of their face.

    I filed one this week: i observed a PT supe doing bargaining unit work for 30 minutes each day, everyday last week(called him out each time too!) and the look on his face when the steward and I went to get them signed off was bloody PRICELESS. he turned red and spit out:" This is PEAK!!!!" it was funny as could be!

    "This is Peak"
    And, what IS his point?
    He doesn't have to follow rules during peak?

    An on road grabbing misloads or running splits with a preloader who is unqualified once and while because the volume spikes during peak is one thing. Especially the way they've been advancing loads with no advanced noticed. But a pt sup 30 mins a day all week, looks like they could use anoter preloader.

    So you would prefer to come back to the building and pick them up yourself?

    I could have met the driver myself. I was under 9.5 yesterday.

    After all, he is bringing you work. Work=$$$$$. They were probably being pressured to get EVERYTHING out of the building.

    In the hub, I let it slide as long as everyone that wants to work is being allowed to work as many hours as they want. Under the language in the national master, supervisors can work if all other means of acquiring bargaining unit employees have been exhausted.

    I was told we cant file on that unless we notify management that I would like to be put on the clock. We can't just watch then file.

    You are always supposed to talk first and only file later if not resolved.

    It's peak. This is the first time in years I haven't seen sups running full routes.

    I went back to my old hub one day this week 3 times, as I waited for my trailer to pull out, I went to hit the head, and as I did I saw the dispatch loading a 24' rental truck. I greeted him and said "You're loading a truck? Let me know how long you're gonna load this so I know what to write on the grievance.....now, where's my shop steward"

    I went back hours later and he was STILL at it. Told him I was going to file on him for the hours, and he just shook his head and looked down, as if to say ":censored2:" LOL

    If I cared, I'd file. But now that I make the big boy $$, I don't need a few more bucks
