    I was late to work today. I had a string of 3 earlier this year, but haven't been late since May. Not proud of any of it, but it's happened. I know the contract doesn't speak of it at all. So I'm guessing it varies by center?

    I'm assuming the 6th is termination?

    Don't make it a habit, but you have to serve a suspension for a non-cardinal infraction (attendance, misloads, etc.) before termination is even on the table.

    You got it right. What you expressed is a policy. What I think the OP meant was what is a procedure or rule for being tardy.

    I believe if you report to work late you forfeit your guaranteed hours. Or they can just send you home if the sort is fully staffed.

    Not in the central region. There has already been a grievance won on this.

    For guarantied hours or for being sent home?

    It would have to be the sending home, because if he punches in he is guaranteed.

    Being sent home. We just had it happen last week. They are paying the guy.

    Couldn't the sup get around that and still send you home without paying? Since you waive your guarantee by showing up late, can they make you work like 10 minutes on the clock and send you home and tell you that you waive your guarantee?

    OK, because I thought their was something in the contract that you forfeit your guaranty when you punch in late. Sent me home one morning on the preload for being five minutes late. May not be much I can do about it now as it was 30 years ago. Taught me that if I was going to be late just roll over and go back to sleep.

    Around here its sad but depends on the person... A few guys have been late more than 10 times...still no warning letter. I dont mind it, there is something called precedent, and you need to remember it.

    I thought there was a strict "no tard" policy? Hmmm.. who knew?

    I have seen drivers come in 15 late no call, turn off the cell phone. knowing that the route will be covered and gone when they get in. They then get the day off. This can back fire if however you might end up on the blind but some guys do it.

    Depends on who it is. Young guy less than a year will be threatened with termination for being 2 clicks late. 10 or 20 or 30 year guy, don't worry about it.
