    Been clocking out after 11 hours for two weeks in a row now. Feels inhumane.

    If dispatch is computerized isn't it by definition inhumane?

    Didn't know you could just hop on the list with no seniority. I only know of 3/40 drivers in the center that are 9.5.

    In my building only drivers that have completed progression are eligible to be on the 9.5 list.

    New thing now is auto OJS of anybody who dares join the 9-5 list. They are scaring drivers out of doing it.
