    does this state law apply at UPS? We have a driver at our center who was told they will now only receive 8 hr days from here on out. As discipline I guess? Can management single him out and cut all his Ot just because the center manager has a personal vendetta against them

    We are only guaranteed 8hrs of work when reporting, there is no langauge on OT being available it is up to dispatchers to allocate where the OT goes.

    Have the affected driver and a friend arrange a conversation that the center manager accidentally overhears...

    "hey...how do you like your 8 hour days?";
    "they're great...I get to see the family much more, I'm sleeping better and I get to attend the kids activities.".

    The affected driver will start getting OT soon thereafter.

    The instant he starts professing his undying love for 8 hour days, they will grow.

    I’m pretty sure he doesn’t do the whole brown cafe. Not very internet savvy.. I just feel like I’m one of the few in our center that know the rights. And this was one of those situations I really don’t know about. I thought there was a law I seen “equalization of overtime” google it.

    What state are you in? Lots of state laws have exemption. Usually a CBA is one of them.

    I think we are missing the point of this thread. This is happening to 1 guy out of about 30 of us. center manager didn’t like the fact that he was standing up for himself in regards of driving safe and decided he would now only get 8 hr days as a means of discipline

    Is it true they actually scrape the leftovers into a large container to be used over again?

    Good for him, now he can work the evening rush at the Mexican place. They just bean stacking it up and leaving it sit for me when I come in at lunchtime the next day. The stuff gets crusted on the plates and it's a *b to scrape off into the "re-use" bin.
