drink your wine coolers
I'm all out. I've switched to strawberry daiquiris.
No. Didn't you read the material I provided. Stay away from alcohol. Gggeeeezzzuuusss!
Sorry, i meant to type, "gay solutions"?
On the way to the first stop. Ok. Great pitch. Or not.
Is it worth the aftermath that the driver is experiencing? Maybe for you. Not for everyone else. And not for this guy. If I go to get ice or a drink at a C store on the way to my first stop I punch in a break. It's not worth the hassle of being accused of stealing time. If its during the day after a few stops and it's really hot or if it was toasty in the AM and your truck was loaded on an outside dock then it would be more conducive to not coding it out. There's more than one factor at play and being tough on here vs what happens in real life when you're out of service for a few weeks with no medical coverage doesnt always play out so well.
Not all areas have you code out your breaks. Here, you just take them.
I'd go for that in a heartbeat.
...so how do you explain the 10 minutes of the pkg car not doing anything?
I would think you would want your break on record so they can't accuse/fabricate you of anything?
That’s a logical thought. However, I’ve never been asked about my gaps before.
i am forwarding this to management
Sure...give them more ideas as if they aren't already proficient at fabricating...
Interesting how employees are accused of stealing time and get dealt with.
Though, shorting a check, are there any consequences management faces for stealing from an employee?
A year end bonus, if they get away with it.
That's why you should never talk to management without a Steward present.
The shop steward at our building always talk to the guys before they go into contact with the manager and see how he can solve the problem without the driver being disciplined.
They get fired.
Anytime they edit a time card, it leaves a trail.
File a grievance and a written complaint with UPS loss prevention/security.
Works like a charm....
The guy who fired for getting ice, call osha and file a formal complain and explain the whole situation. Ups could end up getting fined. According to osha, ups is supposed to provide us with cool clean water every day.... do they do that? No. I stop every morning for hydration and never code it out. We are allowed to get water/ice even if ups thinks they are above the law and osha regulations.
There is no way I would come back without 100% backpay if I was you. Don’t settle.
Did you code out any break for the day? What kind of breaks for your supplement? Tell them that some of the time was with customers on the line.
