Word handed down that unless you actuaully determine the destination of a package on our pre-load, you will loose your dollar per hour. Does any other pre-load operation have this policy or have been told this is the new policy? The includes the unloaders, de-baggers, label scanners, etc. I have been with the company for over 20 years and we have never had this issue. If you work on the pre-load shift and bid for the pre-load, are you not a "pre-loader"? I do not understand the company arguement. Under Article 59 (b) in the Southern supplement wages are talked about for new hires. Starting pay is in 2 catagories. All Other and Pre-loader, Sorter. Pre-loader, Sorter makes $1.00 per hour more. How can a person be a pre-loader right off the street, if it is a bidded position? We have always had the pre-load shift as a $1.00 per hour increase in wages above all other sorts, regardless of the actual job you do. Am I off base?
