Closures are getting sent back to the shipper here.
I think the stay at home and shutting down is overkill.
What kind of lasting changes do you have in mind?
Half the package cars that went out today you could walk down the center aisle without stepping over a package. None were bricked out and some had half empty shelves. These were items ordered before our state went on a 3 week lockdown that started at midnight. I can see UPS consolidating loads to bricked out 9.5 loads and laying off drivers by the end of this week. They don't want to have to pay medical if they don't have to.
Amazon orders are backed up in many areas. Theres no way they can handle the volume. I think we’ll be seeing more of their volume again soon.
Here too. I found out after
careful what you wish for
We actually brought in rental vans and brought our layoffs back into service.
Ran irregs and took 35 stops of someone then sent home today... It's starting
File 9.5 grievances to keep any layoffs low?
I don't really see that happening. When work starts to dry up very few people are going to complain about having too much.
I will. Dont layoff my brothers and sisters and give me extra work that could save their healthcare.
We already have tons of layoffs in my center. The county just closed all non essential business. I would expect a good 30-40% of drivers in my center will be laid off in the coming weeks.
Being new to all this I see I have to be layed off one day before bumping inside, is that the day before or just any day
Volume spiked really high today but apparently is tanking for the rest of the week (based on forecasts.) Hell, they're starting preload at 5:45am tomorrow for an 8:45 driver start time
This was my truck today lol don’t remember it ever being this light. I had 76 stops 168 pieces on a downtown route lol. My 8k was empty, Layoffs coming brotatos
They are for sure coming. Even people that think they are safe are going to be in for a big surprise.
You might have to work one day a week
