FT DR Specialist
Hi everyone. My name is Jack and I've been with UPS in Atlanta for a little over 5 years. I've been a cover driver for 2 1/2 years. I've read the board off and on for a year or so and then decided to join the community. Seems like everyone here has the same complaints that me and my co-workers at P-dale have. Enjoy the job, hard work, stressful, bosses with no common sense, etc. Good to know that we're all in the same mess together I guess. Anyway, I do have a question. All cover drivers are required to work the Friday after Thanksgiving here. We will be delivering NDA an 2DA only of course. Our center manager has told us that we will be getting paid air rate only at double time plus our regular holiday pay at cover driver rate. Is that right? I swear in the past that I was paid cover driver rate at double time for the Friday "holiday". Anyone know the union's stance on this in regard to part-time cover drivers? I know that full timers get full time rate (as they should as they are NOT air drivers ever) but the cover driver thing always gets sups confused and mumbling incoherantly.
