I am fine with seasonals, but am 100% against pvd drivers. We don't need any form of subcontracted workers at all!
Seriously I was LMAO
center manager told one of the younger drivers to call the PVD driver for a meet point
He said I'm not calling dial a scab
Sure, why not?
Think I'll pass on 70hr weeks all peak
Double Time sucks ..
Meanwhile PT hours and work shrinks
why even have a union?
they need to create some split shift scenarios where inside workers can volunteer to PVD or driver help, or keep their main hours at their building.
I get working 8 preload hrs and not being allowed or wanting to PVD. But that’s assuredly somewhat easier work than preload, and more $$$$. We should have first choice.
Subcontractors should not be taking our choices away.
I think I'll pass on $21 an hour and take my $38.50. Oh wait I get a raise this year. $39.30
How much are these "dues" that you guys keep bitching about, anyways?
I live in TX, so Unions aren't really a thing.
I think they should be used as a last resort. Guys should be offered the OT before PVDs are used. For example, some weeks during peak I got 50 hours...I should be able to get my full 60 if desired. I understand many drivers don’t want this but for those who do.
RTW states shouldn’t mean you shouldn’t pay dues.
PT inside employees should be allowed to apply for PVD jobs, and have priority over outside hires. Why are they relegated to crap helper jobs for crap pay?
Never said that.
Unions aren't a thing in TX, so I'm not familiar with them, how it works, or how much it costs. I'll probably find out if I end up getting a job offer.
They came and grabbed my misloads all of peak. Thank you come again!
Wait, you just said you were fine with seasonals.
And we don't have any..
Do you even know what a PVD is?
Pretty sure they’re killing the helper program and hiring double the amount of pvds next year.
You would have to hire a bunch of temp drivers. What is the difference?
What’s funny is every single driver I worked with as a pvd this season was running out of hours by Saturday so yeah, y’all needed my ass
Still, you would be better off with a truck and a pod. Far more stops would be getting done every day.
What I've seen this peak is PVD's being used to put out fires. Management used them as an excuse not to plan. Doesn't work.
Beat it @Barney
Last year the old timers complained about excessive dispatch and being out until 10 every night. This year they complained about scabs taking union work.
