    So many people have been made drivers in my building they are having a hard time getting everyone 8 hours. Full timers already complaining about no overtime. Well I dont feel sorry for them. You could see this disaster coming from a mile away.

    UPS and IBT has stabbed everybody in the back. They should all burn. Including every sellout shill that calls themself a representative that praised this contract like a giddy school girl.

    None of these people are xmas hires. They are all "TCDs" and full time drivers and been hiring the last 3 months. This doesnt include all the new hire preloaders that were shipped off to driving school.

    Well said. How dare I complain after working overtime everyday like clockwork for the last 15 years then at the drop of a hat it stops.

    Dont worry though. Because unlike you I have been here for 15 years and know that even with a new job classification (22.4) 8 hour days will only last for a short time. It will be back to business as usual before you know it.

    It has always been cheaper to pay OT then to hire extra drivers and buy more trucks. UPS may be gearing up for the mas exodus of baby boomers. Most of us are in our 60's now.

    I got 9.5. And I'm not on the 9.5
  15. We have "extra work" sign up sheets if you want more than your guaranteed hours.

    Even at $13/hr there's going to be openings for OT.

    There are so many "qualified" drivers working inside the hub at my building. They are not peak hires, either.

    The real shocker for many non-bid route drivers is that there will be many who run their mouth and act like their s* doesn't stink who will be sent home with no work each day.

    UPS screws with their employees so much and it feeds the early resentment for the company and management. Their treatment of people and lack of honesty, transparency, and respect is the #1 issue with working here.
