    Not sure if this has been asked before, but as a cover driver, am I supposed to get paid cover rate for 8 hours or 4 hours hub rate since I was a preloader. I got different answers at work yesterday. I’m not a full time cover driver/utility but I have been scheduled to work the last 2 months and scheduled all this week of course due to peak.

    You need to have a certain amount of reports as a driver the gear prior to get 8hr holiday pay in the southern. I forget the exact number.

    Cover pay if you work the other 4 days before and after the holiday... in this case M,T,W and F or T,W,F,S if you’re on a T-S schedule. The pay will say 4hrs preload on your timecard but then will change after you punch in/out as cover on the 5th day to 8hrs cover pay (Southern Supplement).

    Thanks. It does show 4 hour hub rate holiday pay on the time card right now. I will see if it changes tomorrow(Friday)when I work or Saturday and if it, I’ll bring it up to my sup since I did work M,T, W. I’m in SoCal.

    Depends on your supplmental language. Judging by the fact you said cover/utility I'm guessing you're in the Southwest package?

    I’m in California, so Southwest correct?

    If you are southwest package rider then you get 8 hours as long as you're scheduled to work the week.

    Section 38 of the southwest package rider.

    Do you know what local you are? That would help.

    Yes you're SWP and that language I posted applies to you so make sure you are paid correctly next week.

    In the southern supplement, you have to work as a driver the whole week that the holiday is in
