    Sup decided to flex start Saturday drivers from 9:30 to 9:00. Upon punching out and checking time card approx 1 hour later, I noticed that the time reflected at 9:30 start time, this shorting the drivers by 1/2 hr. Thoughts on course of action?

    Wow, so if I were to take an extra 15 min on lunch I’m stealing time but a sup intentionally alters time on drivers and you guys will roll over.

    Part time or full time I don't think they want to fire someone for reporting wage theft. I'm pretty sure that's a crime in every state.

    The other side of this could simply be that the drivers didn't change the time already in the diad when they punched in early.

    Maybe the OP came here to learn his options?

    Talking to the sup may not work well.
    The supe will just deny it or say he made a "mistake".

    I guess the weak need to be told every step to take...

    I am a full time driver. I was trying more to seek thoughts from other drivers on the situation as I did confront the sup. He feed the standard “I have not fully reviewed the times” line.

    One should not be considered weak for looking to their peers for guidance and if one sup is doing it then chances are other lemmings are as well and maybe another driver is too scared to ask the question. I plan on discussing with center manager and steward and dealing with this on Monday.

    To answer another question, I am very capable of adjusting not only my start time accordingly within my DIAD, as well as adding my safety time and break and lunch properly. Thus this is what raised my concern when reviewing my time yesterday. I am more concerned with my fellow younger, more inexperienced drivers who do not have a clue as to their time and rely on the sups to properly take care of them.

    You must have a good supervisor. I would have to file to get things fixed.

    I didn't think that you were unable to operate your diad, I was just stating one possibility. I've seen that happen before.
    Sounds like your supervisor is stealing time from you. Call that number, it will get fixed after that. If it doesn't, file with your state labor office.

    You needed BrownCafe to tell you that you should file a grievance for someone shorting your time cards?

    Let me guess, mom still dresses you everyday?
