    Never heard of supervisors doing that. I know management will go pick up misloads and bring them to the right driver but delivering isn't the usual.

    I have seen sups pulling loads with a helper.

    ....they cannot pull a route by their own unless every available driver is on road and even then they are supposed to have an hourly on the car with them...

    We have sups help a lot of the time but they only can do it when one of the bosses isn't looking. Even one of our managers pulls for us. It's pretty nice. But once one of our other bosses comes around they stop.

    Lol until last years peak sups were considered part of peak staffing here.

    I think they can do what they want during November and December, could be wrong though.

    Since when is this alright? Absolutely under no circumstances is management to be touching packages. Greive it everytime you see this happen.

    They seem to make the rules as they go, and know they can get away with almost anything November, December.

    Need to keep them honest. Get your BA involved if your steward is useless.

    I did the same thing for a couple years. Driver helper making top driver pay and my lunch paid for.

    Read your contract book, it's written down plain as day. If you're too lazy to look this stuff up yourself, why should other folks care? My thoughts are if you lack the motivation to look this up, you lack the motivation to file, and also lack foresight to see he's taking a driving job away, possibly yours.

    But yes, feel free to look the other way, we need the company to have padded pockets come 2018.

    Just you wait when his bosses decide to come around and "reward" you for your great job, and give you another car to load.

    "Looks like he's doing a great job, he needs more work. Have him load another car."

    You think that's a joke? That's reality.
