    EC-ing a package has nothing to do with you getting paid your 8 hrs guaranteed.

    Play the game and call in over 9.5, 10, 11 or what ever and take you time delivering all the packages. If it means walking the package off so be it. When they ask you why your way over you can say you told me not to use EC.

    If they dont want you to sheet them as "EC" thats fine, sheet them as "missed" instead. It doesnt matter one way or the other to me. If I cant make it safely up the road due to snow or ice or whatever then the package isnt getting delivered. Totalling a package car and getting injured or even killed isnt worth making service on a package.

    Can't help but laugh at this "EC" nonsense. Twenty years ago, a driver would get sent back out even if it was one stop that was twenty miles away. Instead of convincing yourselves you "can't" deliver in a storm, show them that you can.

    Twenty years ago, we werent issued warning letters for getting stuck in the snow, or cracking a mirror on a snow covered branch, or driving over and damaging grass or landscaping that we couldnt see because it was covered by snow. The company cant have it both ways.

    I have a few customers who call me on snow days and warn me not to even try getting up their driveways. Im not going to argue with them.

    I'm with sober on this one, ever since they began to charge us with accidents when we have issues caused by weather conditions I've used EC whenever I have any doubts. I'm not gonna lose 24yrs safe driving because I got stuck in the snow and needed a tow to get out.

    Don't be a hero. There is no positive, only negative. If they want to play the "don't EC" game, then cool. Oooh. That residential seated a mile off the road with an unshoveled drive way. *CHA-CHING!* Park the PC safetly, and walk it off. Who cares if a single stop takes 20 mins. Be safe, work as directed. If you don't call them on their BS, they most certainly will on you when you end up in a ditch, clip a mailbox, slide into a parked car, etc.
