    I went to my union initiation meeting. To get sworn in. Unfortunately, I went to the hall and not the actual venue. Some of us are just dumb not really lazy. Lol
  3. I don't think they do they anymore. It was a big deal at one time.
    Now the union is just a business

    Preload will get some respect when they stop misloading and dragging so much ass my start time is now 9:55 and I still don’t leave the building until at least 10:30 having to finish loading my own car.

    That again sounds like another union failure. The union settled on $13.00. They struggle to find workers for a 3:30 am shifted start that advertises 4:15 and finishing at 9:00 am on an advertisement saying 8:15 finish time. PT employees are just that PT. The union thinks come Xmas peak everyone should drop their lives and work 8 hour days. People who want 8 hour days are called full time. The union could have got $16.00 an hour for PT and they may still struggle with 3:30am start times.
  7. In a couple of years you'll be over $16 an hour

    That’s great. For two years you guys can leave at 9:55am. I get no flack for late air.
  9. I'm paid by the hour. That $55 an hour overtime really adds up

    Our preload is running 800pph more now than it was 8-10 yrs ago. Meanwhile the start times have remained very similar to the past. It's balls to the wall everyday with still no chance of finishing on time because we aren't given enough time to get the job done. Management could solve the problem and start us earlier but that would hurt their numbers so they refuse to do so. Stop blaming the part timers, they get paid peanuts and work very hard every day.

    Wow, I wonder what on earth could possibly explain why your local isn't doing well like the good ol' days anymore.
    Maybe it's because most people are conscientious and don't want to be a part of your thug mafia racket?

    Deregulation of the trucking industry in the early 1980's.

    I'm sure you weren't even born yet.

    You must be new to management or RTW....

    Another republican plan to make the rich richer at the expense of the working man.
