In southern, time off unpaid is granted in seniority order.
My building has a part time seniority extra work list for inside work.drivers shouldn't be coming in taking part time work,let those part timers eat,jesus.
That’s sounds better than what’s going on now. I’m not interested in working preload or any other shift in addition to my route. If I were I’d opt for working on local sort instead. But none of the people that sign up for preload are willing to.
But if they were should they, as extra drivers, be allowed to opt out of running their routes but still be able to come in and work local sort? I mean it’s essentially what’s happening now but in reverse.
May be the best and simplest solution would be if people who do not actually want the extra work to keep their names off the extra work list? LOL
Happens every day here. Guys that have been here for 15+ years coming in to do preload then going home.... except lately what’s happening is those guys are forced to run their routes due to staffing; which in turn cuts about 50 stops onto someone else to keep them under dot. Slightly annoying when you have to run the same loop, especially when they can’t finish their route and you have to go clean it up on top of the extra work. However, seniority and weekends are the only control we have over our lives and I have no problem with the whole scenario.
UPS deliberately keeps a crappy preload.
The only real alternatives would be to pay significantly more per hour and/or giving all preloaders full-time status.
UPS would rather go out of business than do this so a crappy preload becomes standard nation wide.
Over half of my buildings midnight and preload are Art 22.3 employees just because it can not be properly staffed. Then you have the preload/air drivers who end up running ground everyday because we can't hire enough FT drivers.
If you go to work you are available, period.
Locking thread now.
You're getting a little carried away with your moderator powers. Lol.
Can full timers working local sort or preload be held accountable for technology?
Then yes they can be held to it. They won't do it because they need them but they can be disciplined.
I don't use them if I help preload. I just put my initials on the package
Same thing at my center. Some drivers coming in to run early a.m.'s then getting a call while they're out asking if they want the lay off for the day. Our center works several cover drivers every day. Some are about to get 156 reports so that will turn into full time jobs though. Im in Southern
Why do the snowflakes have such a hard time figuring out how seniority works?
No time to read up on it with all the fortnite tournaments.
Problem is seniority has been perverted into "how can I screw my fellow worker."
It's no longer just us against them. Its us against them unless I can work something out under the table.
My snowflake generation sucks big time .
The snowflake gen doesn't have seniority.
