Glad somebody came to their sense’s
Ummm.... Why would the DOT deny a request to use their own rules?
Nobody has to ask the DOT permission to change from 60 to 70.
Yeah they do because it’s based off of working 7 days a week. Not all centers work 7 days a week and we don’t deliver 7 days a week.
I don't believe it goes by center. The company in general has to be operating 7 days a week.
Then why go back and forth depending on time of year and center to center?
If the company could get by with just putting everyone under the 70 hour rule don’t you think they’d do it?
I have no answer for that but I do know some of our feeder guys have been on a 70/8 since Sept. So if they can be on a 70/8 so could I.
There’s obviously some confusion here on how all of this works. Is the confusion at the ups level? Or the state DOT level? I have no idea but we know it’s not applied uniformly across ups.
I mean it’s ups. Could just be a case of making things much harder than they need to be.
What I've read is that operations with saturday ground and or 7 day a week feeder operations get 70 hour weeks. Smaller centers have to request a 70 hour week.
I was out of hours today and went out as a driver helper with a peak driver who had 14 hours available. Worked just shy of 8 but got paid for 8.
I think it's up to corporate if we go 70/8 but people hear we were denied and think it's DOT telling us no.
Though that's just my opinion.
That’s how I’ve always understood it also was it depends on how your center operates.
I just don’t get why they’d make it more confusing than it needs to be. Like you said feeders there have been 70/8 since sept. Why not just say it’s 70/8 year round instead of going back and forth?
But once again this is ups.
ORION shut off on most routes here. HAHA
The rule is not based on locality. If UPS has trucks running 7 days a week, i.e. Feeders, the company can switch whenever they want to.
They wouldn’t let us go over 60. I came in today and delivered 10 stops then had to come back. Apparently work over 60 now is double time in the new master? Should make a good retro check bonus.
Anything over 12 paid in California is double time.
Not with a CBA. There is a exemption.
So it is just a disconnect between the district manager and reality? Will the district manager make more if he keeps it at 60 hours?
Our center management team can't believe how stupid this is.
That sucks for you. No exemption for FedEx.
Actually looking at it I believe there should be. Though I've been drinking.... a lot.
