I agree . I beep and start moving .
I do at least 10 pull ups before I let people by...
This thread was on page 3. Time for a bump.
When using someone else's tractor, what do you do?
1. Depends on who's tractor
2. Fuel and wash always
3. Leave it like I found it
Opt 2. Leave it like I found it. Yet cleaner and fueled.
Fuel it, never leave my stuff or my trash in it.
But I dont clean out trash that was there.
I do the leave it like I found it rule. But if I know the guy I might go a little extra for him.
The tractor I have this week the driver left his XM for me to enjoy. He's getting the full treatment.
Anyone else seeing contractors everywhere since the new contract was ratified? We've had quite a few on the yard while the bottom Q list drivers are sitting home or working in the building.
Best contract ever!
Agreed. Bunch of them pulling grey boxes out last night.
Let's try to get this thread back on the rails.
If It is my tractor of the day I make it mine before I start the day by cleaning it up to my standards. Could include wiping down everything I may touch during my day, scraping the boogers off the windshield, taking the discarded food out of the passenger side door pocket, removing all the trash I can find, running it through the wash rack, cleaning all inside class and mirrors and throwing out or securing loose items.
Yup. Tuesday after Memorial Day a sup was dragging loads out to the alternate lot. Heard gypsies we’re camped out there.
Yup saw a few gypsies on our yard last night...
You really think the contract made this happen? Sups will always do the wrong thing . File until it stops .write down the trailer number, tractor company and number and time of day .
Why isn't it being grieved?
Enforce the contract.
You have sups that bring loads to the gypsies? Here, we are happy to have UNION DRIVERS bring the work out to the gypsies...
This IS the new contract, I posted it many times before the vote. With the promise to add sleeper runs the union opened contracting. I believe the language says they can be used as long as no seniority feeder drivers are laid off. Q list drivers do not have feeder seniority, only full-time seniority.
Yes we have people who are laid off already file on it.
You guys have sups running loads? That's just crazy!
All our sups are too lazy to do union work.
This is what happens after decades of apathy from the Members.
Most don't enforce the contract and now you end up with a crap contract because The Union Leadership and UPS know the Membership doesn't care.
You guys made your bed and now will lie in it while your jobs disappear.
It may not be as bad as I remembered, but it's still not good. I'm sure they will exploit this as much as possible.
They had the right to subcontract for 30 days to establish new runs for several contracts.
Here you are added to the dispatch board after 60 consecutive days in Feeder but you are earning Feeder seniority retro to day 1 of training after you qualify.
