    I could swear that I saw verbiage in the new contract saying something along the lines of if you are pulled from your route to cover another that you were entitled to a 2hr pay compensation added to whatever you worked that day. I have my own route and am not a coverage driver.

  4. I think it has to be aft a couple of times (but yes you file every time they do that)

    We are 8 drivers short in my center and I know the area that they needed to be covered very well. The new coverage drivers do not. Or so management says

    It’s been more than several dozen times and sometimes for 2 weeks at a time. Been at this center only 7 months and was trying to accommodate and help out but it’s well past annoying at this point.
     
  8. Send them out blind. They will learn

    Do you know if that 2 hr pay compensation is true or not? Wouldn’t mind making a couple extra bucks for dealing with the BS

    Not where I am.

    But my local contract mandates an hour lunch.

    Boring.
     
  14. It's true. We have had it here in our local language for awhile but it's after 3 times.
    Not sure what the wording is in the national to be honest with you

    But anyways file every time

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    Then I’d come in hours later than the new drivers would have blind.

    I’m a career cover driver in a center with 120 routes.

    When they send me out on the BLIND these days, I’m all about SAFETY and SERVICE.

    Safety, obviously.

    NDA, first.

    Next, Follow EDD (lol).

    Continue to follow EDD until lunch, take lunch.

    After lunch, message center about business savers in the 7000 and 8000 sections.

    At this point, it’s 1400, you’re definitely going to need help with business.

    Also, haven’t touched a house yet, running straight business; the failures are starting to cascade.

    Call for help with an OV/70.

    Rinse, repeat.

    Not your problem what the other drivers know. You bid a route then that is your route! Management needs to do their damn job and train their employees. File for harassment on top of penalty pay.

    PERFECT! I wish the cover guys in my center were like you. Everyone in my center are pusillanimous lil bitches and are too scared to make management mad so they run their asses off every day lol.
