    If there is a widespread abuse of that, it will be addressed in the next contract.

    UPS always agrees to contract language they don't like, and then.... tries to

    get what they wanted through the grievance procedure or arbitration.

    It's their "age old" tactic.

    They've been doing it since 1997 and the 22.3 jobs.

    That wasn't the intent of the language.

    Why would it include, the caveat of a 90 minute gap ?
  4. To do late pickups I guess?
    I don't know

    And, cover staffing issues on the preload (in the larger facilities)

    running bulk stops.... LIB irregs.... etc.
  6. How's I know they crucify these guys on Saturdays it's sinful. They're trying to run the Monday work down for the RPCD

    It's new language.

    There is always an adjustment period.

    We'll see what happens.
  8. You know they always find a way to twist it my friend. Language is key

    I would love to believe that if it wasn't for language like this...

    Just take your lunch man, it’s the law in most states. If you absolutely have to be productive during lunch then sort your truck during that 30 min, have every address lined up in order so when you get off lunch you breeze through the second half of your day. I don’t recommend doing any kind of work on your lunch break but I understand where you’re coming from.

    Rack em First to worst!

    He should get a job with banker hours if he NEEDS to be off early every day. He makes us all look bad by working through or working on his lunch. When you are off the clock, DO NOT WORK!

    Why did Denis say on one of the calls that 22.4s would probably only drive? Maybe I imagined that too.

    Just ask sups for a 7.5 hr dispatch and you will work anything over that for free in exchange for getting done when you want to.

    I jokingly asked my former center manager for a 6.5 hour dispatch for my last day. He said that he couldn't do that but he did lighten me up by moving some of my pickups. I ended up flying through the day and asked for the pickups back. Was still punched out and gone early.
