It might also imply the company knows the PT'ers outnumber the FT'ers by a margin big enough to ratify the contract if the company waves a large sum of "beer money" in front of the PT'ers noses.
Considering the huge turn over of PT'ers, the company knows these people aren't gonna be around very long so they (PT'ers) are the people to romance and pump full of pizza and soda pop.
As far as "investing" the bonus..........it will be gone after a couple of weekends of "setting them up" at the local bar.
They can't buy me with pizza & Soda, and I quit drinking years ago, so a little bonus check wont satisfy me.
I want more HOURS. I'm a freaking driver. It drives me crazy that you guys get stuck working over 9.5's and the answer's write here. Us part-time drivers just watching during our 2nd jobs the full timers running and not wanting that overtime.
They should put something in the lines of an exception driver/air driver that allows us to deliver ground and take some weight off the back of those ground drivers that are just begging to have an 8 hr day 40 hr week.
I don't blame you guys for not wanting to go over 9.5's and UPS just keeps screwing both of us. So what they gotta pay me ground rate if I deliver some ground. They're paying that at time in a half to guys that don't even want it but long for family time instead.
I jumped during peak last winter and know how it is. My ground guy loved my help. He would fight with management 2 let him scan 50 stops transfer edd onto my board and let me take off so we can knock off faster. There's gain with a helper but they would gain more if they let me take and run. He let me the first couple days and I didn't even ask for ground pay, was happy with the $11.76 hr jumper rate but they tripped out.
I ran my air in the morning then headed straight to my meet point with him at a ups store. They had me leave my truck there and go with him. He had to go off his route to get me so he lost time for that. I ran every stop and he always told me to slow down, LOL. When done would pick up all the parcels from the UPS store and fill my truck and bring back to my center. good times.
You know, I was working up 2 my D.O.T. hrs. getting 60 hrs. just under for 2 months but got no time in a half for it.
When season was over I said I loved jumping but you'll never get me to do it again at straight time. I don't care if it's 2 different job classes, I'm still working 20 hrs. over and should get time in half. I never clocked out between air and jumping. used same diad I clocked in with.
Whatever the contract says shouldn't matter cause isn't there a law in OHIO that staes over 40 hrs. is overtime?????????????
Anyhow, I'm just venting again.
UPS, screw the bonus check. Maybe the other part-timers have no NADES but I do. At least us part-time drivers should get more. There's more then enough work to go around!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'll not sign and gladly go on strike
. I'll work somewere else till the dust settles.
Are us union guys allowed to work other employment during a strike????????
If not then that PIZZA better come with peperoni and some cheesy bread dang it.
I'm just sick of juggling 3 jobs. I gotta go to my 3rd job soon.
I love driving for UPS for sense of acomplishment not for their corporate pressure and the future is the only reason why I'm here. Would never go threw all this for any other co.
