    FedEx, UPS Find Formula for Delivering Seven Days a Week: Discount Sunday Drivers - Market Screener

    Sundays will soon look a lot like weekdays at FedEx Corp. and United Parcel Service Inc., as delivery drivers fan out to neighborhoods to deliver online orders to doorsteps.

    But there will be a key difference: Drivers working that day will be paid at a much lower rate than those who drive during the week.

    FedEx and UPS, with some assistance from the U.S. Postal Service, will rely mostly on this lower-paid army of delivery drivers as the companies work to turn a profit. The bulk of deliveries will be residential, which are more costly than deliveries to businesses. Both companies recently disclosed the new seven-day-a-week schedule, which starts in January after the busy holiday season.

    oldngray nowhere special

    Drivers SHOULD get less for delivering on Sunday.

    Shouldn't they?
     
  4. It's currently double time here for regular drivers
     
  5. I can believe it...the union is a joke and I think they could've gotten a better contract some drivers are already getting screwed with the whole 22.4
     
  6. It's supposed to be double time

    Sunday is Day 1 of the work week, not Day 7.

    At least it is at Express. I learned that lesson the hard way.

    If it's your 7th consecutive punch, it's double-time. At least that's how it works here in California.

    When the recession hits, this contract is gonna look pretty darn good.

    I was told that once.

    Just wanted to reiterate.
     
  17. It won't just be drivers working 7 days a week it'll be us part time hourlies too somebody has to load the trucks and the package car drivers are too lazy to do it themselves and I could see them going to the union saying in a whiney voice how come we have to work 7 days a week but the hourlies don't
