I just heard from another steward that ups is planning on taking away the bonus from van drivers. Ups says their not entitled to bonus, has any one else hear anything on this. Is it done this way in your centers?
No a regular ftime package driver but out of the 24 ft van.Whats a van driver? An air driver? I'd love to be a van driver, I could just leave the other 250 packages that won't fit in the van on the belt, and I'd be perfectly happy with no bonus (probably since I average 2 hours over!).
Whats a bonus center? It takes me 9.5 to do a 8 hour plan day.
I might believe that if you had said no one was working over time.I think bonuses should be done with. drivers who bonus a half an hour a day make about 3000 dollars a year more than drivers who cant bonus even if they cheated their lunch skipped their tens, and ran a helper off the books.
When set-up correctly bonus is a good way to get productivity. some of the routes here if you move it (not running) you can make an hour or so. or you can dick around be stuck at work another hour, and get paid the same. its a much better incentive to get people to move faster than screaming at them.
unfortunately it works out like some above say. some routes you can get 1-2hrs, another working the same pace you will run over...
