Anyone know any info on retirees being asked to come back to work to train seasonal drivers?
Recently retired FT driver sups and managers are being contracted to come back for Peak Season to train and advise is the rumor I am hearing.
There are at least 2 of them in the Feeder department I just retired from. a former manager and a dispatcher.
We have a couple that came back,to train new drivers.
Funny thing is,they were the first to run out the door. and now they are back!
I'm not talking about supervisors l am talking about retired drivers.One of my retired buddies was called about it today.
Union sent me a letter saying they were waiving suspension of pension benefits from 8/1 until 1/31.
I think the last thing the company would want is a bunch of us old time feeder drivers coming back. We would definitely be a bad influence on any new drivers. haha
Apparently if you have been retired less than 5 years (package drivers) they want you back for peak.
My last center manager told me that any driver over 20 years was a liability!
I've definitely busted my last ball in a brown uniform.
HR has put signs all over our building begging Part timers to become vacation drivers for over $28 an hour. They are having a hard time recruiting drivers apparently.
I feel the same about women. You don't have to spend much on a 20 year old to make her happy. Wife turned 40 I told her I was trading her in for 2 twenty year olds. It wasn't well received.
It's all hands on deck this year. It's almost like they are actually scared of what this peak could be like.
Maybe management needs to find that line they said will form for our jobs if we ever did strike, ORIAN replacing us my ass.
a driver would have to be in a real bad spot to consider coming back here for peak.
I'd rather just grab some popcorn and watch the burning ship sink.
My old full time supervisor came back after being retired to train people. They are using her for other things as well. She does nothing at all and just stands around and chats it up. Which I'm fine with, what are they going to do, fire her?
Once I leave, they could not get me back even in handcuffs and leg irons.
The biggest thing I am looking forward to when I retire is actually relaxing and enjoying the holidays. Why would I give that up?
I think the ship is going to sink this peak....faster than last year.
I have thought about coming back as a Peak helper after I retire but have no desire to come back as a driver.
