    Like most of you, I wasn't particularly thrilled about having to work/ drive today...Even with being paid time & a half at my center. There's drivers that have been with this company longer then I've been alive, & this was a first Sunday working for everyone..But all in all, this was the easiest day for me, ever. 73 resi stops in exactly 3 hours. How was your day? Our management wanted everyone off the clock, no later then 14:59.

    Sounds like a code 5 work you under 6 kind of day. The easiest days I've had are Saturdays delivering air.(few and far between)

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

    So everyone played right into their hands. If I'm working give me my 8.

    Why don't you all force the 8 hour issue? They might not force us to work if they knew everyone would be working or at least paid for 8+

  10. I have to ask those that did work today. How has your peak gone compared to past years? Ours has gone well so we escaped deliveries today.

    Our supplement does not give us that option.

    It is what it is I guess..I don't think most guys cared about having a short day, as many complained about having to work on a Sunday in the first place.

    Ours has been really smooth. We worked today to take the edge off of tomorrow.

    We worked Saturday to take the edge off Monday. I'm expecting to come in to a building drowning in packages tomorrow. Doesn't bother me none. One stop at a time.

    You went in to work 3 hours? What a waste.

    They wanted you all off at 14:59, that's when you punch out @ 15:01.....just to have some fun at their expense

    I'd rather work 11 hours tomorrow instead of 3 hours today and 8 hours tomorrow.

    Luckily enough drivers volunteered on Sat. that I didn't have to be forced to work. And as far as I know no one at my center worked today.

    It's about ups being able to advance loads they wanna run cold loads from Tuesday Monday ect. In preparation for the last minute wave on Wednesday they paid the price for it out here in ca. It's a good idea especially when the north bay hub that they spent what 200million on(rumored) is only running at what 30% efficiency according to another poster on here.
