I have recently been restricted to only 8 hours and have been told this will apply all through peak. I know I could file for the time, but I don't really want to (chicken I guess). The numbers for my area are bad and get worse at some point in the fall and stay that way until spring I have been pounded on this for 4 years and have come to the conclusion that I don't know why this is. I made the mistake of telling my center manager the unadulterated truth, that I will not come in early to fix my load unpaid as many drivers do, skip my break/lunch, another common occurrence, run or do any other crazy things to make my numbers look good. His response is to keep me at 8 hours by making meets and step up his antagonistic attitude(I guess that lovey-dovey precontract vote time is over). Any comments or suggestions would be something for me to think about as I don't understand how this does anything. Punish me by making my check bigger previously or by making me see my family now?
