    Chatter going around about a huge push for preload being down in 3.5 hours. Another thing that was heard was a hard push is coming to get rid of the 3.5 guarantee that pters have. Anyone hear anything?

    Too early to hear anything constructive.

    Not going to happen

    Weekly guarantee or daily? Saturday staffing has caused us to be overstaffed Tue-Thur.
    I know my management would like to have PT'ers that worked only 3 day weeks.

    Does anyone use the 3.5 guarantee? You wanna stay and scrub the toilets?

    My local requires part timers to average 70 hours a month/every 3 months to receive your health care.
    Which means you can't have more than 5 dead days in a 3 month span.

    Our BA puts the onus on the worker to make sure he stays for his 3.5 hour guarantee.

    That would suck.
    Does he put the same burden on full timers?

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

    They better be adding some unload doors if they plan on getting done quicker.

    why not? at 3 hours the cost of fuel alone would knock out %10 of my daily pay

    Also I would just spend the last 30 minutes resorting package cars if given the opportunity.

    will considering my sort dont come down until 830 or 9 and most of the time air is late, we shall see

    Full Timers have to average 160 hrs a month/every 3 months.
    It equals to the same burden of not taking more than 5 dead days every 3 months.
    Our BA wanted 2 things to happen when he started this on July 1st.
    - wanted the drivers to stop taking days off and force them to be worked.
    - our old rule I think was 128 hours, so he was sick of the union not getting enough healthcare money from these drivers to pay their benefits.

    Many years down the road you will be glad you did.
    In order to qualify for a year's pension credit as a PT'er you need to have worked a certain number of hours each year.

    If you are PT just for the benefits and beer money then forget what I said.

    750 hours for a good year. But when you consider you are paid 4 hours for 8 Holidays and 2 option days for 40 hours and at least 20 hours for 1 week of vacation and 25 hours for 1 option week of vacation you only need to work 13 hours a week.

    it’s just the flavor of Q1, to reduce inside OT

    they rolled out a bunch of ideas straight from the IE handbook, which aren’t bad, but they’re combining them with a bunch of stupid marketing and HR ideas that don’t all work in tandem

    We seem to be trying to lower OT and increase scanning compliance at the same time. Second goal is not only worthless for finding misloads on a tight schedule but also impacts the first goal.

    They throw out rumors like this around contract times to try to scare the members. Vote NO on whatever contract UPS proposes. We can get anything we want from them this time around.

    I'm not sure management needs to push to eliminate the daily guarantee. In my experience, we could always find someone who was just there for the benefits willing to go home
