    Unions steward is out ... they sent out 2 preloaders and an air driver with about 60-70 stops each delivering nda's when they should have been talking their mandatory hour lunch beginning between their 4-5 hour of work which management has been steadfast 'this month' about inforcing this with us regular drivers... This is no good... Any advise on the best way to greeve this... Should any drivers still in progression get the same rate as the 'air drivers' who made almost twice as much delivering ground? Or lost overtime? Management is "legitimately" short on drivers due to injury... These guys are putting in for air delivering ground and getting top rate and hours worked

    Air exception drivers do not have a mandatory lunch. Art 40 language supersedes all other contract articles.

    Good to know but they're splitting up a ground route almost 2 to call it an air exception is a stretch

    Then the PTers should be paid top driver rate for delivering ground packages. Happens all the time at my building. I make a killing doing ground deliveries or pick ups. Grieve it if you feel that strongly about it.

    Do you get top rate for the whole shift worked?

    I only receive top driver rate for the hours driving air. I have heard of some Art 22.3 who are paid top rate for the entire day.
