3-day rides ramping up in our division

    Our Division Manger is apparently doing 3-day rides at our center. This is a dead horse that's about to be beat yet again, but... in your opinion, is a 3-day ride considered over-supervision? Is any ride more than your yearly OJS ride considered over-supervision?

    Discuss.

    eats packages Why won't the door close?

    First day is yearly, no reason needed.
    Second day: noted purpose.
    Third day and beyond: Take it to local panel to dispute the purpose and it will likely stop on day 4.
    It is a local agreement as old as dirt.

    So let's say a driver gets a yearly ride in February and has had two production/methods rides in March and is going to get the fourth ride tomorrow. Should that driver file a grievance tomorrow morning?

    Absolutely file! Also note anytime the supervisor riding with you did anything to assist or make your day easier than it normally would be.

    Turn into your first business stop each day on an angle with a bit of speed. All the packages will fall off the shelves making your ride along pretty useless.

    Taking a sharp right turn and hitting a curb will have the same result.

    I had my second S&V ride this year today. My last supervisor did one last month but forgot to turn the paperwork in. He got transferred so I had to do another one since my time was up. No big deal. I have never had a three-day ride in my 34 years.

    If the employee feels he is being harassed he should file a grievance, regardless of how many ride alongs he's had. If at any time a supervisor says you aren't going fast enough, or aren't meeting production, remind them of article 37. If they continue to bring up production, and especially if they threaten discipline, file a grievance.

    Did the rules change? We had 3 day rides every year. It was no big deal. If you done it right the results of your ride was thrown out because you looked too bad on paper. :-)

    The way I read the contract, one day rides are all that is allowed. Article 37, section 2.

    Anybody else read it that way?
