    They screw up with the vague language. And it's not just with the 9.5 debacle.

    Nope, it's getting ready to start soon....as soon as the Company gets their 25% of 22.4 "hybrid drivers" qualified.

    They will be used with staggered start times to eliminated every hour of OT for top scale "RPCD's" possible, at a better than 50% hourly rate discount.

    Seriously, why wouldn't they???

    Same reason why they keep early progression drivers on layoff while having top rate drivers racking up the OT.

    Not here.
    We have plenty of top senior drivers willing to take off as many days as the Company will give them....

    ....and the Company will be giving them out wholesale, while 25% of the drivers on road Tues-Fri are paid half of what RPCD's would.

    What else made this latest contract attractive for UPS?

    Just like part timers, and as they turn over, they make $20.50/hr with no vacation for a year.

    Maybe the Company likes it that way?
  11. The union likes it that way
