    Beg me please.

    You guys shoved the 60 and 70 hours down our throats for years.

    Let's see, 41 hours through Thursday. Friday I will be working 11.01 hours, bank on it.

    See you Monday!

    We already have a "doghouse" off one of the doors by our air sort. Has 20 or so routes loaded out there. And for about 3 weeks have had a "village" set up in the parking lot next door. Another 30 or so routes out there. They run trailers and Uhauls of work out all morning, poor bastards don't leave until at least 10 every morning.

    It's mid November, we're screwed. If only we knew this was coming...

    It wouldn't be like this if Ups grew a set of balls and told amazon to piss off. Without Ups to deliver their crap, amazon would be :censored2:ed! But Ups, the company that has been in business for over 100 years, is bending over backwards for a company that is actively trying to take over the whole industry and siphon off our customers.

    We don't start until 945. There are days we don't leave the building until 1020. 1000 would be great at this point.

    That would help. Here's the thing at least that I see. They still don't want preload there long enough to do the work. You can pay a part time work force half of what you pay drivers to stand around and load.

    Bring them in early enough to do the work to have everything wrapped. Instead, they want preload starting with not enough people on the shift not early enough. It's dark at 5 here, drivers shouldn't be leaving past 9. Maybe 9:15 on a bad day. As a former preloader, put the hours into preload to get drivers out on time. It would cure many problems and getting us out on time gets pickups back and keeps momentum rolling.

    Just my .02

    Yeah, we have a 9:30 start time now. Usually don't leave until 10. Then have 4-8 late air every day. Great system.

    why are we not following seniority when it comes to Saturday?
     
  15. They should ask for volunteers then force from the bottom up

    not here , forcing full timers over qualified reg temps...what should we do?
     
  17. Definitely file a grievance. You aren't allowed to do that.


    They way they do it here is they have a sign up sheet. Then anyone else they need is forced from the bottom, starting with the reg temps.
