In exchange for the day after Thanksgiving

You must be using Teamster math if you think that losing one day equates to getting 5 in return.
Having Thanksgiving, the day after, and a week off gives members one final opportunity to see family during one of the most family-oriented times of the year. I guess you could think of it as a mini-vacation. Christmas week is off limits, and now they want to limit our ability to see family during Thanksgiving and hang out for a few days too? I certainly think it warrants an extra vacation week.

I threw in the "for employees with at least one year" just because they are also affected by the loss of the day after Thanksgiving as a holiday.

During negotiations, you don't offer what you actually want. You start with something big, and work towards a compromise. Is what I said really that controversial for a starting point? It's gotta be more than one option day. That's all I'm saying.


I’m full of it
We worked the last two but they are telling us that we are not working on the 23rd------Saturday air and any "Christmas looking" premium stuff----10 drivers only.
That sounds good they have not told us anything like that yet but we will see this week.
