My husband is a cover driver in the southeast region. I've been trying to find info out of the union manual but having trouble with this. He thought that after he 'cover drives' five hours in one day, any remaining work (be it not driving) he would get paid at his cover driver rate. Last week he drove the night run. They asked him to come in early to help with local sort before he left for his route at 6:45. So he did it. The route each night was right over the 5 hr mark. Should he be paid the driver rate for the 1 1/2 hrs he worked doing the local sort before leaving for his route?
