I've noticed in other threads that some areas guarantee all drivers 8 hrs, while others only bid drivers are guaranteed 8. I am assuming that those that do guarantee the 8, that they use PT cover drivers heavily. How many FT non bid drivers do you guys have? My center does not guarantee anything to FT non bid drivers, but most all work everyday. Only slow time for layoff would be in the Jan/Feb months, and this year with the weather most all worked then as well. We do not have any PT cover drivers. We have about 15+ FT non bid drivers in each of the 2 centers in my building. I would think that the way my center does it would make more FT driving opportunities and higher pay sooner than the guaranteed way. What do you guys think?
