Everyone on 9.5 doesn't seem great for high senority drivers?

    Before all the low senority people have to go help. But with new contract dispatch will go "sorry we burned up all the low senority drivers hours out, they can't go over 9/5 we need you to help." Could really screw up fridays for high senority drivers assumming they didn't go over 9/5 early in the week but low senority did.

    UPS already has a solution in place.....it’s called an 8.2 day. With peak we’ll get a slight reprieve from 9.5 BS but come January 15th it’s gonna get real. Those who don’t want OT will be in hog heaven and those who do want it will be like sharks around a chum bucket.

    There is no difference in someone being a 1 day driver (after qualifying) and a 30 year driver. There are no perks that the higher seniority person gets to go home early on a Friday because of a 9.5 violation. We're all equal and on the list now. If you want to be off early on Friday, call out and save the rest of us your bullcrap.

    It's be interesting because I'm gonna bet performance is up.

    I know my performance for an 8 hour day is much better than it is for an 11 hour day.

    Last Thursday they PCM’d us our year over year stats. They didn’t bode well at all for the extensive overtime days. Last year average paid day was 10.4 now its 8.2 with one stop better on SPORH. So basically we’re making them more money with providing far better service.

    Source?!?!?! Uhmmmm me. There’s a national push to bring down paid days. Peak will provide a reprieve from that but after January 15th more than likely it will right back to 8.2.

    So more routes in even though no 22.4’s yet?

    Yes....far more routes have been dispatched then we’ve ever seen before. Biggest question I have is rather these new drivers hired after August 1st will automatically be retroactively made into 22.4’s once the contract is ratified.

    You would have to bid on a 22.4. I don't think they can retroactively change a job you bid on.

    Not sure.....clearly wouldn’t effect me but it’s just another one of the unknowns.

  15. It's definitely easier to dig in a little bit when you aren't getting pounded everyday.

    I just wonder how much is this costing the company?

    I will believe that when it happens. I wish it would have happened when I was working.
    I would have put in 2 or 3 more years and enjoyed the ride.

    8.2 hour planned day is not happening everywhere. PT air drivers average more then that at my building.

    The physical restraints of the building, can have an effect.
