    We were allowed to until recently
    Then one guy got us all kicked off
    Now the preload is dying and some of our trucks are leaving an hour after sort down

    Gets you off the clock sooner
    Less stops on road
    Fairly basic....

    Apparently no one has worked a driver sort before
    Less misloads
    Truck is loaded in a sensible manner

    You're not necessarily loading your own truck. Typically brought into the jungle wherever you are needed.

    We have drivers on preload but you're not loading your own truck. You load where needed.

    We have a new center manager that is trying to get away from drivers working on the preload. He offered local sorters a chance to double shift and 1 or 2 are doing that. Bosses are getting sick of juggling people on the 9/5 list and then keeping the preload/drivers under 9 hours. Sounds like the guys that want longer days are going to get them in a package car.

    Extra work does not count against your 9.5
    Only on dispatched hours
    Not until Friday when DOT hours are affected

    Extra work does count. All hours worked count towards your 9.5.

    The company and the local have more than likely have just come to a agreement that they won't count it as long as someone doesn't make a stink.

    Wrong on that
    Extra work is just that....extra
    9.5 is only for dispatch on road hours

    Ok... please show me in this language where is says "dispatched" hours.

    It's the Drivers work day. You're on the 9.5 list because you want relief from over time. Not because you want only a 9.5 hour dispatch when driving. If it were "dispatch" hours then it would go off your planned day. Not paid day.

    I honestly don't care. I'm glad you guys have what you want.
