4 weeks into Saturday Ground. Overall the operation is actually alright. However, the staffing is not. 12 drivers forced into T-S, only running 4-5 routes. Saturday layoffs- Best drivers stay, the favorites(kiss assers)/problem drivers, go home (typically of less seniority, which I know is grievable). One driver who sucks always gets laid off, even during the week, actually struck an under the table deal with management to be laid off Saturday’s in order to be on call for Monday’s. So technically he’s M-F while getting OT on Monday. Low seniority as well. That’s what is crossing the line with a handful of drivers. I’m trying to figure out the best way to handle this while looking at the bigger picture. As a group of good low seniority drivers (absolutely not runner gunners) some of us are apprehensive to grieve because management still looks to keep us content by giving us days off when we need them, considering some of us don’t have option/sick days. Some of us don’t want to sour that kind of relationship by going 100% contractual. But to us, this situation has crossed us.
