    Clock Sucker I handle a lot of packages

    I'm too low in seniority so I was told last night I would be working today :( I really hope it isn't like last year where they under staffed really bad! I would like to be off before 13:00 so I can enjoy whats left of my weekend

    HAHAHA Yeah! But I wasn't crying about it. I even mentioned how that was the first time I've ever been laid off that much.... Our center manager also mentioned this week at a PCM that fedex was just approved to put in a 5 million dollar hub in our city. He said last time that happened in the state, 3 routes got cut and a lot of drivers got laid off :crying:

    No Saturdays for me. Plus, I'm on the 9.5 list so it would be rather silly fur me to volunteer for Saturdays.
     
  10. Not a team player?

    Well, let's just say I don't want to be on the team that whines about to much OT and over 9.5s and files but then signs up for more.......and on a Saturday. LOL.

    Didn't know low seniority can be forced to work on a Saturday if you are on the Monday thru Friday shift?

    I presume a bid list was posted for extra work on Saturday, and not enough higher seniority employees signed up, so you are forced to work as a lower seniority employee?

    We have a bid list for preload, reload, and Saturday Air. Most of the signatures are people on the 9.5 list and people that are constantly requesting 8 hr days. WTF?

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    I don't know Saturday's are freaking gravy.

    I'm all about the 9.5 list but i wouldn't mind a Saturday here or there.

    You have a seperate list for each one I assume?

    Gravy is correct but it doesn't make sense to me to work a Saturday while on the list when I could easily get those hours during the week without giving up half the weekend.
    Yep. Each one.
