UPS Warns of Temporary Delays After Cyber Monday Overwhelms Network "Online orders on Cyber Monday, Nov. 27, and the days after overwhelmed expectations, UPS spokesman Steve Gaut said Dec. 5, causing a “bubble” to develop at certain package centers. Heavy volumes forced one- or two-day delays for certain items ordered last week, even as the company worked over the weekend to catch up. The shopping surge prompted the company to notify many of its drivers that they would be required to work as many as 70 hours over an eight-day spell, an increase over the 60 hours over a seven-day period that is more typical during peak season, Gaut said. Drivers are entitled to an extended rest following that period." Oh really, I worked 84 hrs over 8 days. And that extended rest...I got Sunday off. 2 day delay? I have rolled the same stops from Friday till tomorrow. Do these reporters ever even question what they are spoon fed?
