    I'm confused. You mean a RPCD preloading before he takes a route out?

    Here they get paid their Driver rate.

    eats packages I have depth perception issues

    Their rate first week
    PT rate adjusted to building seniority any proceeding week (layoff)
    Time and 1/2 if starting early to help preload before leaving.

    I don't know what supplement you're under. Here it's their regular rate of pay. If a driver was forced and wanted to push it he could file for time and 1/2 for all hours before his start time.

    Suppose to have a PT double shift sign up list. Of course even at time and a half most PT make more at their day job.

    We were told today that we would get part time rate instead of our driver rate

    Looking for info to file
    Past practice sets precedent

    I'm in the western and this would never fly. Do you have a rider also? The language in there may say something different.

    The western says this.

    Also if you're a RPCD then in my opinion at the very least you should make what a FT inside worker makes.

    Also remember all those hours worked count towards your 60 and need 10 hours between.

    Its makes no sense. You were not laid off. You're a FT RPCD. Just because you do preload doesn't turn you into a PTer.

    The contract doesn't say "preloaders" will be paid X amount. Its says PT.

    Also I seem to remember you saying you guys used to load your trucks yourselves. I'm sure you were paid driver wages then.

    JC 3 is our rider

    I am in JC 3 and if you work any shift more than one hour in a higher pay rate you get that pay rate the whole day. So if you preload and don't deliver a route after then they can pay you part time rate. But if you preload and then deliver then you get your driver wage the entire day.

    they should just stretch out the sort to match their staffing

    calling in drivers, unless they were laid off, is totally insane
