Seniority Answers!

  1. This is to all Mgmt. out there that give no recoginition to seniority dont abide by it etc.:

    Two yrs ago my PD got a new p/t sup from unload that had never ran a load been in the load trained new hires in the load, or been trained in the load himself.

    ST=start time DT=downtime
    Heres the roster:
    1. HVD 11 yrs
    $19.97 starts 10 min before ST leaves at DT
    Avg. 22 hrs a wk

    2. HVD 2 yrs
    $11.00 same as above
    Avg. 22 hrs a wk

    3. LVD 7yrs - me
    $14.57 setup 45 min before ST and wrapup
    Avg. 28-32 hrs a wk

    4. Wallsweep 1 yr
    $10.50 paid at ST and wrapup
    Avg. 24 hrs a wk

    5. Wallsweep Helper 1 yr
    $9.50 paid at ST cut at DT
    Avg. 22 hrs a wk

    6. - 12. A total of 7 loaders with 9 months or less-
    Pay ranging $8.50 to $9.00 an hr 10 min after ST leave at DT

    -Keep in mind top 3 belt(stats and volume) in the hub.
    -p/t sup was urgued to keep loaders and cut me and other skilled jobs at DT everyday.

    This is was the plan he put into place:
    1. 11 yrs - load highest volume truck ST 15 min after ST 1st cut at DT
    Avg. 20 hrs a wk

    2. 2 yrs - no change

    3. 7 yrs - load highest volume truck kept setup cut at DT
    Avg. 23-26 hrs a wk

    4. 1 yr - load truck
    Avg. 21 hrs a wk

    5. 1 yr HVD
    Avg. 22 hrs a wk

    6. - 9. no change

    10. 4 months - Wall sweep
    Avg. 24 hrs a wk

    11. 2 months - LVD and wrapup
    Avg. 24-26 hrs a wk

    12. moved to another area work now done by p/t sup

    - This went on for 2 wks.

    - P/T sup's plan/reasoning as follows:
    - Original sorters moved to truck for better frequency.
    - Work the hell out of most senior employees so they will be to
    exhuasted to wrapup.
    - Cut one loader and p/t sup will just handle workload.

    -Union steps in:
    -All are returned to original positions.
    -Grievances paid out for juniors getting more time than seniors.
    -Grievances paid for super working.

    -End result moved to back to training dept. for epic screw up (sent trailers to wrong city and inexperienced sorters sent belt to a stagering 1/400 average.

    Sorry. I am not mgmnt and I read (skimmed) your post. It was on the reread (didn't catch it all the first time :happy2:) that I saw the first line. I humbly apologize. I will be more careful in the future. Did I violate any contract provisions?

    Shouldn't this (and most of Shadys other postings) be on the labor relations forum? Kinda clogging things up here, IMO.

    Should have his own forum where he can control who replies to his discussions (sic) IMHO.

    You have a point. I just moved about ten Threads started by various members to the Labor Forum. The UPS Discussion Forum is the most active, a lot of threads in there really belong in the Labor, Life After Brown, or Current Events forums.
