    have retired drivers deliver air during Christmas at top driver rate?

    Seems not right to have current air drivers and current drivers delivering ground making less. Kind of like the show up to work bonus. Non union, seasonal employees making more than union employees.

    The union (local or otherwise) had to OK this arrangement in order to not disturb the retiree's pension. In other words, it has to be agreed to.

    And, as for the company, it's a winner. No training other than any new technology is needed. Some retirees do it for the money, others just out of boredom.

    What's the problem?

    And how is it different than an air driver delivering ground for top rate? (For OP not you)

    Not in years gone by, but if it changes over this upcoming peak, I'll revise.

    My old feeder department sent a message thru my son (he works there) asking if I'd be interested in working peak. Not delivering or driving, but sitting on the yard telling independents what to do, where to park, checking in loads, etc. I politely declined.

    We have 2 that are running routes and training seasonal drivers, it’s great, if you met our 3 driver sups you’d understand.

    And retired drivers are off the street and not dues paying members making more than regular dues paying drivers.

    Are you sure they don't pay dues for the time they are working?

    Better them then off the street seasonals.

    Something tells me those retirees paid their fair share of dues over their likely 30+ year careers.

    We have a dinner for retirees during peak. They'd have to serve filet mignon and lobster to get me to show up to one of those after I retire. Forget working...

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    We have a retired feeder driver come back and bump our coverage feeder driver into package. No idEa how that works.
  20. Because the co needs them to run pkgs. Feel the love.
    I hope they run 3 hrs over every day.
