Even management told him to slow down and he still runs ..
Whatever it takes to get done. Some days are good and other days it's out of my control. Just try to work efficiently that's all you can do. Too many miles on this engine to run.
You’re correct my union brother , I told my supervisor my day is in the hands of Orion and my loader now...the driver no longer runs the route.
But Orion knows all ....
And when the sky is falling don't use it. LMAO
Orion is usually horrible on extra pieced together routes , businesses at 19:00 and unnecessary breaks. I no longer fill out the miles/eta sheet because with those service failures THEY ARE VOID AND MEAN NOTHING
And then you get an on call and have to go help another driver.....
And how long did it take you to come to this conclusion?
Hint: The smart ones learn this on the first day....
So you think that you can pick up 500 letters in a tote box, spending 30 seconds, and get paid bonus for 500 packages?
Not very smart, are you?
You use the Union everyday. The Union is getting you over $10/hr and full benefits.
Go work for FedEx and make $25/hr, if you're lucky. Or go drive for Amazon at $15/hr. You use the Union everyday.
People don't realize how much money the Union is actually getting for them, Well, except for the PTers, and only because they don't vote.
Why don't you go work for FedEx....Oh, that's right, that would be over a $20K pay cut, since they do not have a Union, and then we'd really hear you complain.
As much as I hate runner/lunch gunners we need them to keep our dispatches light. Often I will pretend to be an on-road supervisor to the new hires surrounding my route. I’ll pull them aside and tell them that they have been running over and need to hustle more..
We have too many young crybabies that need help on a daily basis.
Union doesn’t recognize nor condone bonus
It’s paid at the overtime rate here
GPS , bonuses , Map-Nav...and we still cant hire and get new drivers trained , LOL. PEAK 2019 THE WORST YET
We are a bonus center, and they still cut time allowances all the time. It's not about keeping drivers from running bonus as much as it is a bending of reality to fit their needs. They think that every few months, your stop count should increase and your time allowance should decrease. Most drivers in my center gave up on that game a long time ago. There's no way to win. This is how UPS creates bad drivers. Our work is never good enough, and over time, drivers quit giving a damn.
Yes. I throw away money I've earned every week.
You’re ing hopeless.
So you admit that other drivers in your center have given up on the bonuses and why the hell haven't you done the same? I think you have found your solution to your problem, stop running and chasing this bonus. Obviously they're not going to pay you for it so why work harder for nothing.
I'm surprised UPS still has "bonus" centers. I'm also surprised that the standards haven't been jacked up so high that anyone could still beat them.
They created bonus to benefit them. Why else would it exist?
Slow down and just collect the OT instead. I don't know how bonus is calculated but I imagine it's a losing proposition considering what you give up (running, working unsafely, skipping lunch, losing OT hours, etc).
Means you get back to the building everyday by 4:30 and earn your OT driving home and having supper. Drivers would kill if you tried to take bonus away.
Be careful on when to pick your battles, you will not always win, especially during your first few decades. After that you will win more because you will have out lived several management teams and you'll know how to screw with the kids now running the center.
