    Now that peak is over, have they started with the OJS, or increase in warning letters? Don't want to see if its nation wide. Thanks.

    Peak is still proceeding (for a few more days, at least) & many managerial employees are still working their Peak roles. Ask again in a few weeks.

    I thought peak ran from November 1 through April 30th.
    Maybe that's in the next contract.

    And from May 1 to Oct 31 they can use seasonals as vacation replacements. I'm with JB, Wendy's fries are best eaten at time and a half.

    My on car has been delivering a route the last couple of days. When volume settles down the annual safety rides will start up. Note to self, better start learning the safety drivel.

    If this year is like the last five years (and it's shaping up to be), 'peak' won't be over until the second week of February.

    Same as the last few years, December was smooth, but January was where I made my overtime.

    I'm cover...the last week of working days was between 250-300 stops daily...

    "No one can get my air, I have to drive it back to the building?" $$$

    "We're real sorry about the c-phuq today, but we really can't help you out..." $$$

    "We can't control the amount of stops, but you can control safety...if you need to chew stops, so be it..." $$$

    Sup actually had the stones to say that we can't work helpers in January due to the contract, right before he took a route out of the building.

    I think the company will shoot for a longer peak in the new contract, but January 31st be a closer estimate.

    They usually start early to give themselves enough time to get rid of the dead wood for next peak.

    Our peak is winding down. 3 peak routes were out today and I got help at 1520 from a guy that was done with his route and had taken all his break. I punched out at 1800 and it looked like over half were punched out already. My projected count for tomorrow was under 100. Sounds like Monday we might have all the peak routes out.

    Well Iam sorry to hear of all the OT FORCED out in the rest of the country. Our center manager has been meeting with each driver discussing dispatch. 90% of the drivers are very satisfied with their stop count range agreed on. His therory is give drivers a goal that is attainable in a reasonable time frame and drivers will rise to the occasion. I was in the building tonight, about 8 1/2 hrs ad there were half the drivers in and gone. We are fortunate this center manager has be here 1 1/2 yrs and things are very good. He has had extra routes in this week to keep our hours down, his production numbers are up, drivers are happy, its a good thing!

    Sounds like you got a good one, hope he stays that way and someone above him gets him into a position where he can make real changes.

    Peak has been here for 5 yrs. It will never end. Yes I have had my annual safety ride, my after injury ride, my help you out coz you got hurt ride. Im beginning to think they just want to know how to do the job, since they failed miserably when I was off. Or they like to walk behind me, Im just not sure. Love em all, dont care, they do what they do, I do what I do. Nothing changes when they ride with me or Im alone. Whatever, I have given up. I just go to work, beat me how you choose.

    Jack its kind of sad isnt it, here is an example of a man who works with his crew to make it a good place to work. His method should be used everywhere. By the way , our center was considered one of the worst by division staff before he came, no center manager's wanted anything to do with us.
