    I’m a 20 year upser. Been a pkg driver for 16 years. Started doing back up feeder. Did a night run and after my 10 hour reset I told mgt I want my 8 hr guarantee. Obviously could not do my route so I said give me whatever work you got I’ll sweep the parking lot I don’t care. Got denied. Called the president of my local and he flip flopped. Are we not guaranteed 8 hr a day Monday through Friday. Work day work week language. I’m just blown away right now.

    Maybe you need to work else where. I heard Walmart is hiring greeters.

    I'm quite sure they can't do that grieve it and see what happens.When I bounced back from feeders to p/c I took a lot of days off especially the first's days back to p/c.

    I have plenty of faith in you buddy. Hump out the rest of those stops and get right.
     
  13. No stops this week.

    Really? Then there is absolutely no excuse for no alcohol consumption at this point.
     
  15. I went over my limit yesterday. Lol

    You have a limit? Tell your wife to give me a call and I'll see that we raise that limit.

    Not necessarily, since the national level IBT leaders have signaled all locals to drop their pants and let the Company have its way with them. Starting with the 2018 Contract.
