If you call in but it is close to or after the start time is it a no call no show?
No, but they will be ticked and you'll be on the crap list
I don't think you could be charged with a no call no show but I would bet it would be an unexcused absent.
Unexcused absence? If you're absent, it is an occurrence, we get six, doesn't matter if they excuse it or not, whatever that means.
I guess I was thinking of an excused illness or injury and not calling in for a hangover.
1 hour before start time is the cut off.
If you after the sort was supposed to start it is a No Call, within an hour of the sort start could go either way.
You are supposed to call in an hour before your start time but it shouldn't end up as a no call as long as you call in less than 15 minutes after your start time.
I tried calling in a few weeks ago and they said no. Suppose I need to grow a pair.
Yep. Management will take whatever you give them. Tell them to go for it if they say there'll be consequences and have the union enforce your rights if there are.
Don't do that either way. Management has to scramble and it screws other hourlies on their assignments. For example, each of your 3 routes becomes a 4th for 3 people. Should give ample time for sups to call other locations for help or bring in double shifters.
The problem is that UPS frequently won't answer the phone when you try to call in early. It's made extra difficult on purpose.
In national master states that you have until half way through the sort or one and a half hours through the sort to be considered a no call.
language aside, we all know how ups operates. you should know that calling in last minute is going to cause a problem. I'm not directing this at who I quoted. just offering some insight
Agreed completely had 13 call ins during my op last night. Hated it
Calling out screws the hourlies more than it screws management.
When we fail we fail as a team, everyone suffers when someone is selfish
In what situation would you call in after your start time?
When your alarm fails to wake you?
What about someone who is 20-30 minutes late every single night no matter the start time?
