    Forced work every Monday in our center for all Tues-Saturday drivers. Is this acceptable? We are given 48 hours notice, FYI.

    Can you point me to the language in the contract? I thought it went from the bottom up, but now everyone has to come in.

    I thought it was based on needing employees, call outs, etc

    Do we still have to work Saturday?

    If it were me and I were in your position, I'd just go in Monday and lay down the whole day. And do it every day that week until Friday comes and you don't have the DOT hours. Whoopsie, my bad! Cya Tuesday!

    Your schedule has to be posted. What does it say? If you are scheduled off on Monday and they say otherwise point to the schedule and ask, "what does that say?" If the schedule has you listed as working 6 days grab a steward and ask, "WTF?"

    You are going to have to man-up at some point and stop being a punching bag!

    Yeappers, we see it here a lot also! All you can do is verbalize how they can do it and hope they find their voice.

    This came up last year when we first started Saturday operation.....basically they can schedule you. Out here we are only entitled to a 24hour heads up so two days is a blessing. Come in and demand 8 hours. It’s bs like that that makes you question what union protection really means.
