    What is the process at your center when they have an extra driver report to work? How do they decide who goes home?

    With all things being equal.... seniority should prevail.

    What happened ?

    Women are given priority, then the problem drivers are next option, then back room deals are given next thought, then if all the above fail, it goes by seniority. Asking from top down and force from bottom up. Runners are not given days off due to productivity needs.

    Depends if you have guys who enforce the contract language.

    When time off is available it shall be offered in seniority order by classification as long as it does not result in economic cost to the Employer.

    That said, I’ve never had to use it as I don’t go home if I show up.

    That is some jacked-up language.

    All of that "area knowledge" crap.... can come into play.

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    The way it's handled here "seniority gives you the right to work. Not the right not to work."

    Angry females, that try and facilitate their sexual fantasies with other women ?

    That has never happened.... in the history of UPS.

    You forget it's all about numbers now.

    I get offered tons of days off. I'm pretty sure it's because my numbers are so bad. Lol

    I just don't understand where the women would work here. There aren't any kitchens at my hub.

    Why the hell would anyone get up, brown up, drive to work, and then go home?

    The way things run around here, I took every opportunity I could get. Even working 4 days, I'd still get 50 hours. Go home and get caught us on some house stuff.

    Way back when I was on the preload, the company that cleans uniforms left them on the belt. Woman supe says, "need someone to put the uniforms away."
    Me, "Looks like women's work to me, better get one of them."
    and I walked away.
    Did not end as well as one would think.

    Yeah my center loves to do that....in reverse. Literally every new guy under the age of 35 gets sent home while the veterans are kept on.
