You are going to tick Up........., some people off.
If they want to work for free more power to them. Should help my ups stock price and keep those dividend checks flowing.
Violation of Federal Labor Law to work off the clock. Could be considered coercion and slave labor. I thought we were a Union company and not a plantation.
where can i get one of these forms? dont say shop steward since most of mine are useless.
i just want to wave one in front of my sups to see how scared they get.
Your UNION hall..will give you all you need
a great many of the idiots that come on and set the truck up off the clock and then run all day are the same ones who get sent to help me in the PM
Unfortunately, my hall is literally hundreds of miles from me. After working local sort on Friday nights, it'd be a real chore to make a meeting at 8:00 on a Saturday morning. I have driven over a hundred miles to a satellite/centralized meeting on a Saturday afternoon.
If you're in the same situation as I am, check your local's website. That's where I get my grievance forms.
I'd bet dollars to donuts if you called your BA, he'd mail you forms.
Also if your local has a website they probably have one online that you can fill out and print. That's how I do mine.
Whenever they send me a message to help someone etc ...I refer them to the idiot who loads and sorts off the clock (he is in my loop) because 9 x out 10 he is finished , while I got 35 left to deliver on the shelf......this time of year they will run him in the ground and he wonders why.
another avenue to take on this matter is to have the highest seniority pre-loader file for off the clock employee loading his truck. Preloader should be paid for time said driver was loading off the clock. It will stir the pot but the actions of the driver are completely illegal on a Union level.
We have several drivers that work off the clock,get in early, and pay their union dues at the same time. They are only hurting themselves and most of all, everyone in the center. You cant stop them there are too many and the loads are always f up due to managements lack of knowledge and listening capabilities.
Can be and should be stopped immediately!!!
Why? Seriously why?
I do not do it. Haven't in many years. What is it hurting? Is the amount of discourse and anger it causes among union brothers worth it?
We have stewards who walk the belts every day and file on people just so the stewards make the grievance money. There have been more arguments more fights more " the union" and no one ha stopped doing it. So what good is it?
Working off the clock is agreeing to a pay cut. Sorry, can't do it. Go home, someone else will do it that needs the money.
Will get back to you.....have to go to work on the clock and make money
We have a couple of preloaders that will stack boxes outside the cars because the drivers come in early to load them. Never fails when I have to cover one of those routes I'm the last one to leave.
If they want me to load those boxes then change my start time.
I know some co workers that would love to get paid for the time those others work off the clock.
Also, imagine how many routes that would be created if EVERY driver took their lunch
could this be used for the drivers that view the computers in the morning for their ORION dispatch??
