So, UPS gets scroogier and scroogier every year. Last year no turkeys. This year, we're not guaranteed our 8 hours! Why do I know this? Well, me and some drivers were looking at our pay stubs today and noticed we only worked '38.4' or '36' or whatever, under 40 hours. We asked our center manager who replied, 'Well, we gave everyone a code 5 so they could go home early on Christmas eve, so you got paid for the work you did only'... umm... Really? I thought I went home early because EVERY business of mine (commercial driver) closes at 1200 on Christmas Eve and New Years Eve day. I asked a union steward about it, who told me he knew but since I was leaving the building I don't know what's to become of it. Essentially, I'm losing 6.5 hours (at least of pay) within 2 weeks because managers can't read... Or they put in the contract books (in crayon likely) 'guaranteed 8 hours of work *in crayon* except on Christmas Eve and New Year Eves day.' I'm livid about this because it's $100+ (after taxes) that I can use to pay off debt and bills! It's money I was counting on! If my union does nothing about it (not holding my breath) it just goes to show how spineless and corporate they've become. Instead of looking out after the employees, they'd be looking out for UPS which means it should be the managers paying the dues and not me. Will post if anything comes of this... Gawd, I'm so ticked!!!
