    Are you sure this isn't the UPS term 'lay off' for the purposes of you are not working today?

    If your 50 jobs were eliminated, the union would have to be notified.

    Sire this is very serious. Its clear ups is trying to throw the air drivers out on the streets and starve them at christmas. we thank you for having the courage to expose this evil plot.

    have you met integrity? ( the guy in the yellow pajama's)

    Integrity this is your chance to fight this evil. A few posts promising to fight hard on behalf of these air drivers and you too will finally have something to call a victory when they return to work next week.

    They can't just layoff 50 Air Driver they have to lay off by senority meaning the lowest guys on the FT senority list go first. They can do a one day layoff without following senority. If they lay off all the Air Driver those who have senority over FT driver should be able to bump meaning that the last 50 or so driver on the senority list in your building would be laid off first not.

    no reason to use air drivers on xmas even when 99% of businesses are closed. Just sayin...

    I bet you will have your air routes back when people are shipping air again.

    You called yourself to tell yourself you were laid off? That's going off the deep end a bit..

    I am an air driver and worked happily December 24th. Infact, had a bunch of overtime and barely did any work.

    This plan was in the works for a while. Atlanta set up a pilot program in another center. Earlier in the year someone mention that grd,1st 2nd,day were all loaded in one truck. That center made it work, got rid of the next day air drivers. Now one guy in one area does all service levels. At the begining of the new year there will be more postings at other centers mentioning the exact same thing. Now would be perfect time for Atanta to release the plan. Volume is down and will down for a while. Atlanta wants the drivers to get acclimated to this new enviorment. When volume does pick up again in the spring, what's left of the drivers are going to get killed on there routes. The drivers I talk to tell me last year I used to touch 300 packages a day now I'm touching 500+ packages a day.

    I find it alarming that people are calling sired for information--truly a case of the blind leading the blind.
