    Ok my sup asked me if I wanted to work the day after Christmas. I said yes and he asked if I wanted my guarantee. I said yes. He then said you are laid off... Then he added I could displace 2 ptmers. Problem I am a night p/u driver whose route is geared to 4 hrs. Do I have a good grievance. What should I do? How would other more experienced 22.3's handle this?

    If you are a FT driver, you have a right-to work over those PT's

    We were all asked if we wanted to volunteer. Volunteers were taken and about 12+ of us were approved for personals.

    If you worked monday then you are guaranteed to work the rest of the week. They cannont choose which days you can work.

    I asked my steward what would happen if all the drivers in my center wanted to work. He said that most of us would push a broom for 8 hours...

    Stopcount, that makes no sense at all. If the volume isn't there they certainly have the to right to decide how many people get to work on a given day regardless of what other days you have worked. Who gets to work and who doesn't is decided by seniority. Senior can, junior must.

    I was laid off tomorrow night and have 7+ years. That is pretty sad.

    I have to work. I have been with the company for 19 years. I didn't want to. I rather have the time off to spend with my family. I wish UPS would make this a paid holiday for the company. I don't know how many hours I have to work but the fewer the better. No pickups and we are just delivering air and send agains from Wed. Merry Christmas everybody

    Looking for a game for day after Christmas?
    Have you tried Cornholing?


    Singles Or Doubles Play:

    Cornhole / Corn Toss can be played as doubles or singles. In doubles play two contestants are partners against another team of two contestants; in singles play a contestant competes against another contestant.

    In doubles play, one member of each team pitches from one cornhole platform and the other members pitch from the other cornhole platform. In singles play, both contestants pitch from the same cornhole platform. All other rules are basically the same for doubles or singles play.

    Don't think so. Not everywhere, anyway. Contract language, please.

    I was laid off Wed, offered 4 hours Fri (declined). I've got '98 ft seniority. As far as I know UPS can declare any day a layoff day, and then offer whatever guarantees they want to get enough volunteers, so long as they both make the offers and accept volunteers in seniority order. If they force you, which has to be done reverse seniority, you must be paid your guarantee.

    Wednesday and Friday were lay off days for us. None of us night guys work on Christmas eve. So I used a personal for Wednesday. Friday I could have worked but chose to use a personal. Would rather have a 5 day weekend and since I don't work again until 930 pm Monday its like having a 6 day weekend. Now I think thats the right way to do the Christmas break. I learned long ago that those days aren't worth the headache of coming in to work.

    The day after Christmas turned out hilarious. UPS turned into one big bomb and blew up. lol Instead of getting my 3.5 guarantee I got 4 1/2 hours because management failed to plan properly. Just for giggles I got 9.5 additionally (at reg. not at double) for grievance pay b/c the sups were doing some mad package handling. This layoff was the best payoff. The bldg. planned for 35k instead ran 50k.

    Well, forcasting for the future with numbers from ONE YEAR AGO doesn't help.
