This morning the supervisors were begging drivers to take the day off work. There were so many routes cut because they're giving all of the work to the pvds and there ended up being extra drivers without routes. They had to give some of us pvd routes but then they stated that we couldn't get our 8 hour guarantee and once we were done we had to go home. Our Steward doesn't seem to be helpful and was wanting to come here to ask advice from you guys on how to proceed.

Ok outside company came into our building.
So let me get this straight it’s ok for a pt car washer to do other peoples jobs to get 8 hours, but not ok for a ft driver to do someone else’s job to get 8 hours? I’m confused.
You would be okay having a sup doing a Union job?

Where in the op’s post did it say supervisor’s were doing union work? And I loved supervisor’s doing union work it paid me or someone else free money.
Than you would love working in the Hub. Except the Union loses supervisors working grievances. Is it any wonder a lot of PT don't see a reason to get involved in the Union.

Say what? No guarantee?

I hope zero drivers went home. We are our own worst enemy.

When done with work send DIAD message saying you're done and want your 8 hour guarantee. When they send you home anyways. Ask for DIAD messages and then file grievance if they don't pay you 8 hours.
