So after threatening to do this very thing for years, management is actually apparently going to do it. They are bringing in a "secondary team" for day sort at the hub I work at. We won't be allowed to work more than 4 hours (typically shift had anywhere from 5-6 hours); once we hit the 4 hour mark, we're done. Might even be let go at 3.5 hours. They're going to bring in the secondary team at some point before our 3.5-4 hours are up, and then those people are going to completely take over once we're gone for the day. So I you not, there will be people standing around getting paid to do jack because there aren't enough positions open, and I doubt you could entice people to come in and work for 1-2 hours a day otherwise. All this bull because I'm guessing management is pissy about their yearly bonuses being too small. They are literally hiring extra people so we don't get overtime (typically it's about 15-30 minutes per day, rarely is it an hour or more) so their numbers will look better. Won't this end up costing the company more $$$? Because if these people stay on a year they all get the health benefits, and they get the tuition money from day one if they so want. I guess my question is- is there anything us lowly peons can do? This is supposedly going into effect on Sunday. I don't know if the has hit the fan yet amongst my coworkers because we found out about it at the end of shift and I had to leave to take care of family stuff and couldn't stick around to shoot the .
