    Fortunately it wasn't critical, just wanted to get started on vaca without the blow out dispatch holding me back. Still my 8 hr request turned into a 9.5.
    Surprise surprise.
    Just curious, how does penalty pay for that work and is it worth the trouble?

    Sounds like a double grievance possibility then. File for the 8 and if you have 2+ other 9.5 days, then file on that too. Easy money.

    Oh, and penalty pay on an 8 hour grievance is 2 hours pay. So $66.

    Penalty pay in my supplement says they have to pay you an additional 2 hours of pay. Of course you have to grieve it. If you don't grieve it then I'm sure all future 8 hr request will be treated the same as this one.

    I didnt see any penelty pay for 8hr request in central supplement. After getting hosed over on 8hr request 2 times in past just found it easier to call in sick for future ones when I used to drive got enough o.t to make up lost pay anyway

    file on it, and you will get 2 hours of penalty pay. There are several drivers in my buidling (mysel fincluded) who put them in on Mondays or Wednesdays knowing there isnt a snowballs chanc e in Hades of it being honored with the sole vision of being able to file and collect. And since the day wasn't honoured it dosent count towards the Two a Month we are entitled to so we follow suit the next week .
    Between 8 hour Penalty grievances,Supervisor Working Grievances and Excessive Overtime Grievances I have made an extra $8,000 this year so far.

    That's what they want you to do or offer the day off !!
    They don't have to screw around with the loop dispatch if your 8 hour day request is void.

    Someone previous said that in the central, that you can bring it back undelivered, if they give you too much work. Didn't see that in supplement, so it must have been a grievance decision.

    You need to file for the penalty pay if they did not honor your 8hr request. Easiest money you can make out here. Don't let it slip through the cracks.

    I wish people would only ask for 8 hours when they actually need it instead of either just to make extra money or/and just to make life a little more difficult for the dispatchers and supervisors. Why? Because I'm one of the guys that frequently gets burned by them. That is.....when they actually decided to honor them.

    If enough guys opt in,take their 8 hour days.
    They might actually have to put a route or three in!

    Just saying.

    No offense but I take mine even if I don't need them. It's my right per the contract. Management and dispatch know exactly what is needed to give me an 8 hour day. They also have a weeks notice and sometimes 3 weeks notice because I like to plan ahead. There is no excuse for them not to honor my 8 hour requests.
