    Your UPS management "partners" are getting extremely generous.

    what's that quote...

    small minds discuss other people
    average minds discuss events
    great minds discuss ideas

    I try to apply that to others and the gossip at UPS.

    Coldworld I voted YES for strike authorization vote....

    What would happen if you only worked 3 days in pkg and 2 in feeder.... I assume you can get on the list but they won't have a chance at the additional 2 days to load you up.....

    A major flaw is "excessive" overtime isn't defined. Does that mean 1 hour, 2 hours, 3 hours of OT? 1 minute?

    One minute over 9.5 three times a week. They could easily fix this problem but they refuse to.

    No I understand how getting on the 9.5 list works. I'm talking about if you are on the 9.5 list and they give you three under 9.5 days, can they give you a 10 hour day and a 9.3 day for the next two days and not have it be "assigning excessive overtime in retaliation for begin on the 9.5"? What about 2 ten hour days or a 12 hour day and then a 9.3 hour day? Likely it would depend on other drivers dispatches in relation to yours.

    They have language for piling on at the end of the week.

    It's not an easy game to play

    I would be happy with that dispatch.


    So what about you and all the other drivers next to you that get boned out of having an 8 hr because someone wants to play games and intentionally screw someone over? I totally agree with keeping routes in etc...but the person next to him is getting extra work to keep him at an 8 hr. It's one thing if it's done honest and legit it's something totally different when it's something dishonest and cooked up.

    To say oh I'd pat him on the back if he totally screwed you out of an 8 hr request constantly is total hogwash. There are PLENTY of drivers that are willing to take 8 hr requests to keep said routes in place.

    True. But then they pull out the old, planned day and paid day BS. Had a 45 minute meeting with Stewart and center manager over this very thing one morning.

    Lol. You just have some BullsEye on your back.

    MC4YOU2 Wherever I see Trump, it smells like he's Putin.

    That's just it. Planned day is meaningless. The language is based on hours worked. Period.

    Anything else is just a distraction from the language in the contract. They do this everywhere. Don't be bamboozled by their bs.

    I'm not bamboozled in any way. I'm just saying that's what they try and pull.

    Yes they do. Over and over, every time we bring a 9.5 forth. They teach all Labor Managers to obfuscate and lie. Over and over...

    Isn't it the same thing if they work you over 9.5 Monday and Tuesday as it is to work you over 9.5 Thursday and Friday? The language doesn't specify what days they can work you over 9.5.

    Good for you! I used to stretch those office visits to the point of the managers head exploding. Just get to work!, go to your route!, I'm instructing you to go to work!, a few responses from the past.

    Same here. Not my current center manager but the one before. loved to talk in circles. So when I went in there I one upped center manager and talked in even bigger circles. One day at about 9:50 center manager said please leave. Time to go to work. center manager was begging me to leave the office
