Central Region JAC Decisions
Grown men do not tell one another to "shut up" without repercussion.
Look before you leap Mr. Ego.
ohhh we got us a badass over here
Damn straight----I am the baddest man to ever hide behind a (contract) keyboard.
Can you post the where in the contract it states this for Central region please? I’m in the Central too.
Using your other screen name...Tieguy.

I wish the southern supplement had stronger 8 hr request language. Many of our drivers only request them hoping to get the penalty pay when over dispatched. Similar language would probably reduce those requests down to drivers that really just want an 8 hour day. You’d think management would try their best to ALWAYS send help to a driver that’s about to pick get penalty pay but they don’t. They seem to hate drivers bringing unfinished routes back more than paying the penalty.
Evidently it's cheaper to make them file the grievance, wait months for the hearing, deadlock it (with the hope the grievant dies in the meantime) than to put another driver on the road.
They have it down to the nickel but if enough filed it would overload their system. I thought that we were in a union and paid dues so where did all the spineless workers come from?
Spineless BAs or from the cowardice they see in their work groups?
Pretty sad. We could be true blue collar workers if we'd only stand tall.
Read them. They're JAC decisions from the Central Region.
THAT'S where they're posted.
Ask your BA if it's current.
Standing tall nowadays means throwing a hissy fit over having to take a negotiated, and mandatory (in some supplements), lunch break while also maintaining the highest level of apathy during contract negotiations.
If you're a steward, BA, or P.O. the question remains...will you do what you promised when you ran for office? Your job is to face the wind and not back down. Otherwise get out of the way and let someone else do the job for you and the rest of the membership who may be waiting for a true leader to lead.
Not everyone is a leader. Jimmy Hoffa Sr. was a leader. He gave up a normal lifestyle to help millions of workers looking for someone to embody what they knew down deep in their heart needed to be fixed. They bled in the streets to fight corporate greed.
There are Jimmys out there. Now is the time to stand up.
Can you explain what the JAC acronym stands for? I’ve only been a driver for 4 years and just started holding them accountable for the 8 hour requests. Last week I had one approved, and they pulled me aside on that day and try to talk me out of it and said unfortunately there’s nothing they could do. I said that’s fine I’ll take the penalty pay, and they were extremely pissed that I wouldn’t buy their BS excuse and asked me not to file. I laughed.
