    I asked my boss if we would get paid and he said that ups is closed today...

    should we be getting paid for this or not? Is this something i should call the union to clarify?

    Also if you don't report to work and clock in. I guess we can use an Option Day for this. My Center apparently just took the phone off the hook and none of my supervisors will answer their cell phones. We have great communications in my Center.

    you sure they made it to work? Generally what happens is you have one guy that makes it to work to answer three phones that are ringing at the same time.

    If they call you before your shift starts you will not get paid unless you use an optional.

    I understand that, the Center's phone number has been busy all day. I called six different supervisors and two managers today and not a single one of them answered their cell phones. I drive 27 miles to work, and a lot of them have to drive further at an earlier time, its just as dangerous for them too. My On Car Sup has about 20 drivers under him, I think that he could of at least took a phone call from me. I could only leave a message on his voice mail. Its difficult to call in when they won't answer the phone.

    The Blizzard of 78, I guess, was a pretty vivid dream.
