    Nope....it's all different depending upon your individual situation. Though it is all written down in the contract.

    There's a link right here on this site.

    [​IMG] It I believe is whatever the top p/t person (seniority) in building is making on that shift preload or re-load. I could be totally wrong that happens once and awhile j/k.

    I tink

    We have a full time preload. Our preloaders actually make more per hour than a driver. They get the same pay as a driver plus they get a 15 cent per hour night differential because their shift starts after 5 PM. They get very little overtime though.

    I thought if a full time PCD went to preload because of layoffs he or she was paid their driver's rate, no?

    Ok, so I am at 15.75, is that what they have to pay me if I go back to pre load during lay off days?

    In the Southern Region we stay at driver pay unless we work more than seven consecutive in a non-driving job. On the eighth day our pay is changed to whatever our pay would be as a part-timer with equal seniority. I have ten years so on the eighth consecutive day my pay would be changed to whatever a part-timer with 10 years of seniority makes. Whatever that is. That is what the Southern Supplement says. It doesn't say that being in progression is a factor.

    govols019 You smell that?

    Hopefully, the non-laid off drivers will help ensure the ones who are laid off won't hit that 8th day.

    You southern supplement clearly states that you don't follow the National in terms of layoffs?

    The National states while in progression you get what your seniority part time rate would be during layoffs.

    Oops - read the contract, there is a link on this very site!
