My management didnt know if we are off Wednesday 12/31/08
Delivery and pickup of air and international packages only.
However, it depends on where you are and your position.
We have 5 drivers working Wed. (including me) but all rtes out Fri.
If Wed. is only air then I'll have to see why our air drivers aren't working. Hmmmmmm.
Some are requesting 8, others are hours worked in our center.
It's volunteers first and then force from the bottom after that. It's just like day after Thanksgiving.
I won't be working, I bet. Haven't had to in a few years now.
What was the stupid question?
OK I'll bite you are kidding wright??
how you worked like the past week Christmas eve and today 12/26/08
I was asking our center manager about the sign up sheet for New Year's Eve and he says on the calendar it just shows UPS Express Critical available that day. I told him we always deliver air on that day just like the day after Thanksgiving. But he says we aren't, says so on the UPS calendar! So I checked and that is what it says! But I just checked UPSERS.com and it says we ARE delivering air that day. We have a new center manager, as in never been in operations before. He has been in safety for years and they threw him into the center manager position just a couple months ago! I guess I will find out this week for sure but does anyone know for sure? The 2008 UPS calendar really doesn't say anything about air delivery on New Year's Eve like it does on the day after Thanksgiving.
Word at my center is that so far they are planning to use every available driver on wednesday because we will still be delivering christmas presents.

Unless you are a troll.
You're fading away. Have you been messing with the "space-time continuum"? You better get a new flux capacitor for your avatar!
Does anyone else think that 1/2 will be the same as 12/26?
no because i am working 1/2 and i had 12/26 off so for me its completely different
Hope so cause I'm not planing to be there.
I may take my first option 3 day of 2009 that day.
I'll be delivering Air at time and a half plus holiday pay.
we get double time on top of holiday pay
I'm curious........for those working New Year's Eve, how many will be taking showers at their respective hubs before tehy head home??
