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 .See someone like you would just call in. No problem. I get like that at times throughout the year where I’m like “f that.” I have no problem with people not wanting to work extra around here, I usually avoid extra work at all costs. Never volunteer. It’s just a choice I make to be all in during peak and cash as much as I can.
I keep seeing all these “can they force me in on my day off” posts and of course, the answer is NO. Nobody can force you to do anything. If you don’t want to work, call in and bring your lube with you on Monday. No skin off my back. You won’t get fired. You won’t get in huge trouble as long as you have sick days to burn. But if you’re new and complaining about working Saturdays during peak.....might not be a good job for you.
