We're finally up and running on the 4X10's at my new station. Couriers here have been working 10 hrs a day, 5 days a week for many years and have built their lives around that income. Several have told me they are going to have to get a second job and, as you can imagine, they aren't happy. The thing is if a lot of freight is shifted to Ground there will have to be a restructuring of rts back to 5 days because there's no way we'll get 35 hrs. I had a fairly busy day today and only got 10 hrs. And that included more than 2.5 hrs of roundtrip stem time. I know we're only guaranteed 35 hrs but one of the excuses given for slow pay progression over the years was to give us an incentive to work the OT the company needed us to work. Ridiculous raises and elimination of OT is going to hurt way too many employees. If the company has any shred of decency they'll give couriers a substantial adjustment in pay to make up for some of the loss of OT. Pretty much know that won't happen.
