    If they force you to work Next Sunday (December 20th) what will you do?
    1 Work it and take a code 5.
    2 Work it and demand 8+ hours
    3 Call in.
    4 No call, no show.
    5 Try to volunteer for Saturday so they can't force me (34 hr rule)

    Pay will vary by supplement...straight time, time and a half, double time.
    Ability to demand 8 will vary by supplement

    We worked last Sunday and again this Sunday, mandatory. Next Sunday I am sure will be no different. Take 05 so I can get home at a decent hour (They are making us come back at 6 hours, off by hour 7) and get paid double for the same stops that I would have to do Monday morning for straight time.

    If you are coming back under 6 are they telling you that you don't get a 2nd 10 minute paid break (for those with 2 paid 10 minute breaks), and/or no unpaid lunch?

    Are you sure you are not entitled by contract to that 2nd paid break if working over 4 or 6 hours? Remember to take your paid break/breaks when taking a code 5.

    Does your State have laws regarding a second paid bathroom break if working over 4 hours? Some do.

    We are not required to input lunch. As far as the 2nd paid break, they don't mention a word.

    I would consider it, if it took a lot of the heat off Monday. The past couple Monday's have been train wrecks.

    Not sure why it would be a big deal.
    We are in the service industry, lest we forget.
    It's a short week anyways, and next week is even shorter.
    Plenty of time to relax and use that fat paycheck from a mentally tough month.

    Won't happen where I'm at. Full timers can't volunteer and work Saturdays, that's for part timers only.

    You're called into work, how can they say be off by 7 when you're guaranteed 8?

    Don't see the need for it in our area.

    Option #2. If I have to work I'll be getting paid a minimum of 8 hours. They're planning on not working drivers on 12/19/15 as to avoid the 34 hour reset issue.

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

    How would that affect it?

    You have to take either Saturday or Sunday off to reset for the following week.
