    Delivery and pickup of air and international packages only.

    However, it depends on where you are and your position.

    If Wed. is only air then I'll have to see why our air drivers aren't working. Hmmmmmm.

    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.

    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.:dont_know::confused:
