Was told by center manager that IE is working on a new 9.1hr goal per day/per car instead of the 156 stops per car average in this area. I work in an urban area that has many commercial routes (myself being one of them) and to make that average, many of us worked a record amount of hours last year while the region self destructed as far as safety (ie accidents/injuries) was concerned. Anyone else heard about this? As contract talks near, how many other things that the company has been beating us down with the last few years will be eased back on as far as discipline goes? Guess it's time again for the let's be friends/ and a team again till the contract is ratified game. You in?
