    You won't get in ANY trouble . It's in our contract you cannot be forced to work a 6th punch (in my local) . These guys need to learn their rights . My last peak in package I was told to report every Saturday and I neither showed up or called in. Not a word was mentioned to me about it .

    He has a better chance of being right once than they have of getting me to come in on a Saturday.

    It was quiet on my end. I delivered 35 stops, rolled 6 to Monday and was punched out by 12:45pm.

    You want me to re-retire?
     
  11. If these guys demanded 8 hours they wouldn't have to force as many drivers in.

    I did 32 stops off my own route, 110 pieces, and sorted my own mostly loaded truck in perfect order. Pulled off two misloads. Four easy slow hours of double time. Now my Monday won't be hell.

    Because if I want code 6 they will direct me to go help some low seniority guy who was forced to come in delivering resis in some area I don't know. I just want to run my route, get my resis off, deliver the businesses I know are open, and get paid double time to sort my own truck perfectly. Then go home.

    Sorry but you’re a UPS driver...of course you’re going to put in extra hours during Christmas....this is like soldiers bitching about deploying....you knew it when you signed up for the job. Enjoy the OT and get the kids something nice for Christmas....time to man up.

    I assume that they will be running the same plan on Monday----if not, you got paid a lot of money to basically waste your time to "sort your own truck perfectly".

    UPS said in the beginning we don’t deliver commercial ground ..Now it’s peak and they want us to deliver businesses on sat ..absolutely not

    After finally completing progression, I can see it this way. But while you’re not getting paid as much as everyone else, I’d be angry too.

    Why not? If you are on road and they are open why not get rid of them?

    Do you think I am going to drive by Gamestop and not deliver their packages?
