Hazard Pay?

Discussion in 'UPS Union Issues' started by Wally, Apr 23, 2020.

  1. One of my friends works for a food distributor and they are forced mandatory overtime at least 6 days a week but at least the company is paying a double time for all hours after 8.
    I thought that was pretty cool

    It is a decent company. I know some friends from the local in Coke and Pepsi and they are getting a couple bucks an hour extra which includes the warehouse. One of the beer groups is getting a couple bucks as well. I didn't say that UPS was doing the right thing(they aren't). Just answering the original question of did the IBT ask for haz pay. They aren't required but they could care about the employees a whiole bunch more. If employees didn't show up because of the situation, I'm sure they would have to do something. Our guys making $37 an hour probably makes the difference. I'm surprised more part time employees haven't told them to pack sand.
  3. Get this peak like work continues all your round some of them might
    Yes that's full timers make a good buck and I'm really not expecting any more money put some gestures in Goodwill would be nice or maybe a show up bonus for the part-time people or at least not try to get them out and less than three and a half hours so they can make a couple extra bucks you know?

    I think "elected leaders" should get some sort of extra compensation.
  6. The union hall was closed are they collecting unemployment or are they still working?

    They are the ones working extremely hard in their offices negotiating stellar contracts like our last master agreement. They should get a million each AT LEAST.
  8. they already got that it was a small unmarked builders in a brown paper bag set behind a dumpster

    To more than just seasonals
  13. How about the company do the right thing like many others doing. If you want to break from a union in the 95 language then do as follows
    Knock off all the b******* any hours over 9 is double time and all people forced to work 6 punches is also double time

    I like the forced double pay idea. I actually wrote that down for the next contract proposals last week.

    Today the Teamsters were at the facility handing out Teamster masks. Asked if I wanted one, told them no thanks. I’ll take the cost of the mask. I asked why we didn’t go for hazard pay. No answer.

    The adult response would have been: "Thank you for the mask. I appreciate your concern for our well being."

    Your local officials have zero say when it comes to hazard pay so why pester them about it.
