    If you work at a M-F hub does management force air drivers to work on Saturday delivering air or let full timers get a 6th punch?
  2. It's different everywhere. Here no full timers deliver air only on Saturdays because we a guaranteed 8 hours. Now that we have Saturday delivery it really doesn't matter anymore.

    Saturday air is air driver work. If there’s not enough air drivers, the work is offered to full time volunteers from the top down.

    We have air drivers turning down the work. Then they're asking FT by seniority

    Do air drivers who work Monday-Friday get 6th day punch for working Saturdays? Or is it only after 40 hours ?

    I’ve never heard of air drivers being able to turn down work.

    We work Saturdays for only 4 hrs to drop off air. If you grieve for 8 they wont have you work anymore Saturdays
  12. We have many people signed up to become Saturday air drivers yet management does nothing to get them qualified for this.
    They just essentially force low seniority drivers to come in Saturday to run the air.
    It's all overtime pay but still, its Saturday.
    What can be done? Does everyone just need to call in on Saturday's to force them to get people who want to drive on Saturday to school?

    Air drivers work every Saturday here and they force regulars from the bottom up
  14. We've got 1 air driver & another 7 or 8 ground forced on Saturday.
    They have a list of 7ish people signed up for Saturday air driving. Been around 6 months of the list being up with 0 effort to get them driving
