    The Blackadder Are you not amused?

    There is a simple reason for this, the philly airport is likely closed tomorrow night already, or UPS thinks its going to be closed and is not going to send anything to the airport.

    Wind gust to over 60 in philly area tomorrow, if UPS sends people out in that I never ever want to hear about safety from UPS again.

    If they send people out in weather like that everyone should just refuse.

    Looks like they'll be cutting more routes.

    They better not cut No routes tomorrow. They should try to run as many as possible so we are not out there for long. But I doubt it, all the high seniority guys were already putting thete name down to take off Monday n Tuesday.

    If they send us out but call us back do we get 8 or does the act pd god give them a free pass to put us out in harms way without a guarantee of at least making our 8?

    I have no idea, there so much shhht with ups, its too much to learn. I'm still trying to make my ft seniority. Hard enough trying to understand that. But if I do go, I better get paid for 8.

    I'm pretty sure the "act of god" clause wouldn't apply in that situation, if they've already put you on the clock you get your guarantee. Even if it did it's supposed to be for sudden unexpected events, they've been talking about this storm for a week now.

    From the sounds of the reports on The Weather Channel, there should be many many areas shutting down operations.

    Mr. Sandra Lee closed down NYC, basically. He's wise to do so, I think.
