    You do not get ground pay for the whole day-----just for the on road part.

    As an air exception driver you will only receive ground pay for the driving portion regardless of how much time you spent doing ground work. The 22.3 guys tell me they are paid ground rate for the entire day. Also the PT bid air drivers but I never have.

    Doesn't specify that, just difference of pay rate, to top driver rate, you get it all day.

    No way they are going to pay this kid $35/hr or whatever top rate is now for slinging boxes. If they are going to pay that much they would have him sweep major pickup stops.

    That's their decision. It is to prevent them from running short staffed, and use them as a crutch.

    $37.64/hr where I am at and sure they do. Pay me when I run a misload on the way back to the building.

    They should pay you that rate for all driving work you do, any day you deliver or pickup ground.

    I am in the Central and what I have been told is you are paid full wage for the time you spend delivering ground. But, if you deliver ground over 4 hours then you get full wage for the entire days work.

    Yep.


    "When an employee is required to spend more than one (1) hour, but less than four (4) hours, of his/her workday upon a job providing a higher rate of pay, he/she shall receive four (4) hours’ guarantee at the higher rate; for work in excess of four (4) hours at a higher pay classification, he/she shall receive eight (8) hours’ guarantee at a higher rate."

    My Local has 22.3 yard shifters that clean up on this language. They are paid feeder

    rate while working the yard, one click over 4 hours.... and top rate all day. During

    peak, they can work 15-16 hours in the yard. Some don't want to go home.

    There is so much confusion because you are listening to management. They are lying to you. You need to talk to your steward or BA. I posted the contact info for the two locals in Iowa in the other thread in which you were asking these questions.

    I already tried explaining this stuff to her. I believe the ground exception violation can be augmented by supplement language.
