Question about Saturday work from a recently qualified driver. I've been hearing that both it's mandatory, but also that it's optional for M-F drivers. Is it also overtime? I'm fine with the extra money, just want to be informed. Couldn't find it in the Union agreement.

Still new to driving at our hub but I'll answer best I can.

I don't think we have a dedicated Saturday ground operation, mostly next day air. Everyone gets asked on Friday if they wish to work or not.

I'm fairly positive I'm RPCD.

Normally only work M-F, they ask about Saturday work on Friday.

Final part is I'm part of the Western Region supplemental agreement.

Normally it would be considered extra work and OT. Ask from the top and force from the bottom. Meaning it goes to the top seniority drivers first and if no one wants it, force the bottom drivers to work.

Well with out knowing what kind of driver you are I can't help much but I can say you should be paid over time.

Also your rider is JC3

Teamsters local 190
190 is in Montana correct? Saturday is an optional workday if you are an RPCD scheduled Mon-Fri. They cannot force anyone in on their day off as we have language saying our scheduled work week is 5 consecutive days either Mon-Fri or Tues-Sat.
