    My hub recently put out a new combo bid sheet and they have data capture clerk/hub sorter available at a hub closer to my house then the one I'm currently working at. I ask a few co-workers what does a data capture clerk do and none of them seem to be sure. Has anybody done it? If so what do you do and do you like it?

    My second question, can you be a combo(ex. sorter/loader) and also do Saturday Air driving? I'm looking to maximize more hours.

    Data capture clerks do address corrections.

    Art. 22 hours are capped at 40 (no overtime) so you will not be able to drive on Saturday.

    No they are not capped at 40 hours. Several of ours get more than 40 hours in a week. Not everywhere at UPS is the same

    IIRC, Dave, the year I worked an Art. 22 job, I worked a lot of overtime including 60 hour weeks at peak.

    My very first night I punched out with 8.13 hours. Center Manager pulled me aside the following day to tell me that I cannot go over 8.

    Different centers, different center manager's and different policies.

    OT isn't banned, but it is widely frowned upon.

    A data capture clerk processes International shipments to expedite custom's clearance and enters ASDs for billing and OPLD purposes.
    Amongst other things.

    You could work Saturday air if one of your combo jobs was air driving. You would fall in after PT air drivers and before FT package car drivers.

    @Arch , it's unlikely you would be able to work Saturday Air driving because of the seniority order. See Article 40, and/or ask a steward or business agent what the local practice is. Also, depending on your regular shift hours, would you be in compliance with DOT hours of Service (10 hours off)?

    I have worked different jobs as a clerk FT combo in hub and preload, etc. It's an okay gig. "D-CAP" And as a 22.3 FT inside/inside, you won't be driving. Your DOT card will be allowed to expire.

    It really comes down to district and not local management for OT policies. The center manager just does what he/she is told. At least that is what I heard.

    You are correct.

    Probably. One of the several center manager's we had didn't like my OT. The others didn't care. I got sent out a lot in the morning for air and to help drivers.

    And, at peak, all the rules go out the window.

    It's a bizarre thing with 22.3's and PTers. We can give a driver 4 hours of OT, sure, but nobody else. Like wut....

    Does your local allow you to bid on jobs that are available in other buildings?
