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

    All 8 hour requests and optional holidays have been circled as denied on Friday. I assume this has to do with it being a Friday before a holiday. I know they can't do this should be interesting to see how it all goes down though.

    They can't do this. Article 37, Section 1, deals with 8 HR days. They can't deny them. Sounds like you've got a manager who is trying to throw his weight around, probably hoping no one will stand up to him/her. Contact your steward or Business agent.

    Personally it's not my problem I haven't requested either for Friday. I heard senior drivers complaining this morning. I'll just sit back and watch the fireworks.

    There won't be any. Most drivers lay down and take it.

    yes they absolutely can

    they'll have to pay out grievances for it, but the drivers WILL work what the center manager wants them to work

    I kind of wish I were working this week just to test this decision. I have building seniority.

    They started that crap at our center earlier this year thinking they were only going to have to pay 2 hour penalty pay............ We CRUSHED them with Supervisor Working Grievances,and after paying out over $1000 in two weeks that nonsense STOPPED.

    Ok my question is what good does this do? It won't be heard until long after the day they want off.

    Agreed. My center manager knows that I am a regular here and I told him already that I'm glad I'm not somewhere else cause all I hear is complaining from other parts of the country.
