    Coming soon to a center near you. Our building is basically doubling the amount of Saturday ground routes and are going to force RPCDs to work a 6th day. Volunteer first and then forced from the bottom up.

    I'm under the southern supplement and don't understand how my defined 5-day work week now becomes 6.

    Yeah that’s strange, you’d think they’d hire the max amount of 22.4’s they are permitted to in order to cover the additional Saturday work.

    They're going to use all the tcd's in the building first so I'm assuming it's being treated as extra work although it's the new norm.
     
  4. They're shifting a lot of Monday's work to Saturday
     
  5. They're doing it everywhere

    Its happening here also. Its the massive increase in residential volume. They are at the max 22.4s here and have actually went over the 25% and my local has filed a grievance.

    I take it you are in Michigan, and due to the flooding they have you using a boat on your route?
    After all, you said you had a boatload each day...
    BTW, is it a row boat, and you have helpers to row for you??

    I remember a 3 RPCD to 1 22.4 but for some reason I can't find it. @zubenelgenubi do you remember this?
