    UPS is not paying double time for hours over 60 in our area, has anybody else run into this problem?

    Are they supposed to? Please post the link to the contract language that covers this.

    They where trying 2 play games on our pay scale for last Saturday’s work, saying it wasn’t a 6th punch ( amuse of the Holiday) and paying us at our regular rate

    Actually, they were right-----the holiday does not count toward hours worked.

    I can see their point, but the BA went in and got us the time and a half rate.
     
  8. If it's not your regular work day here it's considered an extra punch and you get time and a half.

    It was a short discussion I guess and we prevailed with the higher wage.

    It's not Friday yet. It's like when you're going to fire someone. You wait till Friday to give them the bad news so that it doesn't disrupt productivity.

    They don't want to give drivers a heads up because they might start stretching their day out longer.
