    I am a newly hired feeder driver who is on call, that's not in the union yet. So, dispatch called Friday while my phone was dead when they had called.
    What does "No Call" indicate and are there any repercussions to this?

    Thanks in advance

    Can someone please explain how on call feeder works? No such thing in my local. Sounds great. I can work one day per week? Am i missing something?

    Missing a work call during your probationary is not good.

    Especially on a Friday....

    Most of the bigger feeder dept's have bid runs and a "open" board.

    Drivers that don't have a bid run, will be "on-call" for the open board.



    In my Local.... you could.
     
  5. Do you people make this stuff up?
    You go through all of the effort to get hired here , then use that lame excuse.

    You better sleep with your uniform on and have that phone charged up all of the time!

    This is peak vacation time and if you don't answer now, they just might never call you back again.

    They literally ask you to do one thing. Keep your phone on.

    Talk to steward to get no call removed from timecard. You were not scheduled to work.

    Our "on call" drivers are laid off and not required to be on call or answer their personal phones.
     
  9. He is also trying to qualify. That's a big difference

    We don't have this. How much does one get paid to be "on call". I assume you must get paid something to sit by your phone all day?

    How does someone let their phone die while being on call in 2019

    They tried that here with some young guys. I asked the boss that same question

    That was the end of “on call”

    Currently 9 dollars an hour extra. Our locals got seasonal help in play so lowbies got uprated.

    My wife gets paid zilch to be on call and has to be less than 30 min away at any time she’s on call. Sometimes from 7pm Friday til 7am Monday

    What do you mean $9.00 an hour extra? $9.00 on top of full rate?

    Yikes, so it's possible for her to not get called, and the weekends kinda blown because you can't go anywhere?
    What's she do? I know nurses that do this, but they get paid a lot so it makes it worth it.

    She’s anesthesia and yes she gets paid well but nothing extra to be on call.

    The plan is to make her hospital a level 1 trauma center. To do this she’d have to be at the hospital during call. If they do that they’ll have to compensate them somehow

    This is a portable USB charger. It was 20 dollars and lasts anywhere from 20-30 hours and charges my phone extremely quickly.
    We are professional drivers, we make sure we have a charged phone in case anything happens when we're on road.
    We also make sure our phone is charged at all times when we are qualifying. Especially when we are freaking on call.
    This is the big leagues

    Was more of a sarcastic joke. Being on call doesn’t pay extra. However our local has been having seasonal hire work, which bumps anyone in progression up to the seasonal rate. So its like getting paid extra for being on call.
