    I guess every area is a little different. The new guys in my area,are reg temps.

    BUT,they have to let you know,the day before if you are not working.

    Your most likely a temp / seasonal employee since your got hired in June. Most off the street people that get hired to drive From June to Jan 15 are hired as seasonal / temp.

    If you have question about it you need to ask a shop steward in your building they should be able to give you the correct answer for your area. The rules about off the street hires and free period vary by area.

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    We are sending 1/3 of the center home most days. All while management is being told they need to hire more. Oh and every morning they are told to cut routes.

    This company has bipolar disorder.

    Same here...2 drivers long, yet some drivers are going out with 160+ stops. Hire more so it looks like we are keeping our promise to hire all these drivers and to make it look like we are trying to reduce hours and workloads...what a bunch of BS.

    Average paid day the past couple of weeks has been under 9 hours in my building. Boss said to enjoy it while it lasts.
