Just as background, I have been working as a permanent PT preloader at a fairly small center (about 20-25 routes per day) for about a year and a half now. I am fairly low on the seniority list, but there are now 4 people below me. My PT Sup sends out texts every day saying if I am laid off, or what the start time will be. Usually I have to text him to ask, as it gets to be rather late in the day before I hear from him most of the time (typically after 4pm). The worst is on Sundays, though, where I may not receive notification that I am working until around 7pm. It makes it very hard to plan for anything by not having notice sooner. I have tried searching through the contract, and my supplement (Southern), to find out if there is any requirement for when employees must be notified of the preload start time, but I haven't been able to find any language discussing this. I understand, from searching this site, that many centers have their weekly schedules posted on Friday for the following week, but my building does not do this to my knowledge. Is there a contractual requirement for notification about start times? I have seen some people on here say the company has to give 24 hours notice, but I can't find it in the contract. If this is something that I can grieve, then I want to do that. Mostly, I just want to be given reasonable notice for when I have to work. How have others dealt with this issue? Thanks in advance for any helpful input! Also, I plan to call my BA tomorrow, but I wanted to put it out there to you guys as well.
