    A guy in my center has filed 3 over 9.5 grievances in the past 3 weeks. They cut one or two areas and give an already 10+ hr per day rte another hour of work? Meeting was a few days ago, and nothing has changed. Im asking because Im gonna file next and want to know how. My area is cut I follow my work and bump a less sr. driver. The days are 10-13hr(biggest was 13.84) PLANNED days. I run a little under less than .50. Im tired of 10-12 hour days. Our BA tries to talk us out of filing Grievances..why?

    Probably because it hinders his ability to eat a dozen donuts when the Krispy Kreme "Hot" sign is on.

    Our agents are excellent at multi-tasking.

    Eating with both hands is not normally considered multitasking.

    If they cut your route,you have the option of taking off. At least you wouldn't be over dispatched then

    Depends on whether the wife finds out about it.

    take that 13.84 hour day and make it a over 14 hour day than take tomorrow off....

    Just keep filing your BA seems to be lazy. Next you vote for a new BA voted that slate out....

    My building sends cars out at just over a 9 hour planned day. Are center manager told us he was told to make it a 10 plus hour planned day because when it was at 10 hours planned day last year most everyone was running scratch and that there are some people that are always running over now when it's only a 9 hour planned day. He said the people that are running over all the time need to pick it up or hes going to be forced to raise the planned day back to 10 hours...

    Hoax...with each new post,you seem to laugh harder at our concerns.
    How would you like to be out till 9PM delivering amazon crap?
    Sure we get paid for it,but we don't want the OT.
    If you did an (alleged, under) 9.5 hr shift as a driver now you would see my point.
    But I think I see,you are just happy to get out of there...lucky bastard:cowboysmile:

    Why do you worry about the "plan"? Do you take your breaks and lunch within the specified contractually agreed time?

    Obviously, this thread was directed to ME, so I will say I agree with upsguy72. It would be easy to take a 13.84 day one minute over 14 hours (It's only 10 minutes). Take the next day off, because you won't have your MANDATORY 10 hours off between shifts. Then the next day you're back, do it again.

    I'm usually fairly good at deciphering posts and following logical progressions but I can't figure out how comparing a BA to the cop stereotype has anything to do with UPS Drivers working excess hours.
    Hopefully after the upcoming contract is signed, hours will get better.

    I am just a happy guy in general but I am a bit happier thinking about being retired this time next year.

    Work steady and safe, file when you get violated, and everything will work out.

    I have this quote in my office and my wife thinks my humor is quite a bit like Dave Barry's.

    Sorry if you don't like my sense of humor.

    Maybe I should be more like Integrity ... hmmmm.

    Just miss. Send a message that you're going to miss x number of stops and just bring the :censored2::censored2::censored2::censored2: back. Make it their problem.

    file ,file ,file. I have earned some NICE bank this year from my 9.5 grievances. If your BA is lazy,call ( or even better GO ) the Union hall and talk to whomever,and as many people as you need to until you find someone to help you.
    we are very lucky in that we have an EXCELLENT BA

    Are you sure?

    I thought the same thing but I've never walked that mile in his shoes.

    We sit around and say how bad we have it and we all agree with one another.

    I start at 8.55. A 14 hour planned day would have me working until. 11:35 pm. Our boss drives us hard but the average paid day is still around 9 hours. I call BS on some of the hours people claim they work.

    This is bad advice but if you insist upon doing this you had best have your ducks in a row. Idle times of 5 minutes or more will be questioned. Your route will be printed out and reviewed for inconsistencies.
