    We're being told Monday is a mandatory work day yet labor day is marked with a star on the calendar noting that critical service will be available. We're confused as to what holidays we're supposed to be off and it feels like management is making up their own rules about holidays off.

    Look at your contract under holidays.

    They are running a sort here in CHEMA on Labor Day. There is a sign up list for drivers and shifters.

    Labor Day is one of 8 holidays on there but it doesn't mention if we should be closed those days or not..only that union members will be paid for those days.

    I worked some holiday this year.. Memorial Day or Independence Day.
    We get the shaft here, only time and a half to work. Other Locals get much more.

    The company can open any day they want. The issue is how much you get paid to work it.
    I BELIEVE they can force from the bottom up, but I'm not 100% on that. You can always bang in!

    So why are you asking Union Hourly employees?
    You work under a different set of rules....
