    All you Air Drivers out there, how often are you being forced to work Saturdays? I am in the middle as far as seniority is concerned, but continue be forced to work every Saturday. Aside from this, I love the job. When I started 4 years ago I to was told to expect working a couple weekends a month.....

    Does your building have Saturday ground? Are you Monday thru Friday?

    Our work weeks are five consecutive days. If your supplement is the same, give them a big fat NO

    Saturday air is SO :censored2:ing easy. Idk why you would even complain about working Saturdays. It’s easy money.
    I work every Saturday just delivering air.

    As long as they force every air driver under you to work then yes you have to work. Unless you disqualify yourself. Pretty easy $28.64/hr and by August 1st will be $30.09/hr.

    Saturday's have been blowing up lately at our center. I'll work one a month cause it's an easy $300+ for maybe 50 stops. Easiest money I make besides grievance money.

    Kids and a wife that I would like to spend a full weekend with on occasion is a good reason to not want to work EVERY Saturday. My kids have sports games on Saturdays that I would like to attend. Having a weekend camping trip. Not to mention, when air drivers are FORCED to drive Saturdays, its straight pay.

    Art 40. He is a PT air driver. Straight time unless you have 40 hours in before Saturday. Been that way for decades.

    We run Saturday ground and ever since they started doing that I can't volunteer to do a few hours on Saturday morning anymore. The regular Saturday guys run it all.

    Didn't realize Art 40 superseded language in supplements. Thanks.

    I have over 40 hours going in to tomorrow and I am being forced to run air on Saturday because we dont have enough air drivers

    Our cover drivers used to be forced to work Saturdays every week even with 54 hours worked.

    Some guys had to do it for 7 years. Luckily I only had to do it for a couple years.
