Again with this topic.. I came out of work today and started talking with a few friends of mine who preload with me and are replacement drivers. Another person came out in a huff with another kid flowing him saying “what’s wrong?” he replied “it’s over!”. He turned to us because one of the people with me asked him what was over. He heard from another high ranking supervisor that our HUB was going to get rid of the twilight shift and move them over to ours, grave yard. This would also get rid of those with five years under seniority at the end of July. I posted this awhile ago, after over hearing it from a feeder loader. Some of you said rumors are rumors and so on alike. This is what I told him as well. Seriously I can’t see them doing such a thing as this. You’re going to take a load of new people off what they’re doing and good at into a nightmare such as preloading? Talk about stringing themselves up (as always really). Preload at my building has a 70% turnover rate, meaning most of them don’t even stay around for 90 days. Preload is a death sentence if you want to get anywhere in this company. In fact, the percentage of drivers at my building who started out preloading is under 10%, around 7-8%. Even one of my friends who was there with me, and made 55,000$ last year cover driving, after preloading for more then a year is thinking about quitting because of the working conditions. And he preloaded eight trucks at another building. I see bad news written all over this ordeal if it does come to fruition. And you drivers out there, you think the load was bad then, just wait and see if this were a reality. Honestly I don’t see it happening. They would have to put one sup to each new person loading. Efficiency of the building would drop quiet significantly due to miss loads, late air, slow loading and poor loading. Plus people up and quitting as another story I'll share. Back in the day UPS used to hire people straight out on the street to drive. Of course after awhile they started receiving massive amounts of grievances. I guess UPS learned their lesson after that. I would like to know if this were being discussed at your building at all. If a supervisor could fill us in if they know anything. It could be just our building. Thanks for your time, hope you enjoyed reading!
