    Already have 47 hours as of Thursday night, rolled 20,000 pieces today. Most of our center will be over by Friday night. So when do these :censored2: heads decide to screw us and use the 70 hour rule?

    That's not in the manual.
    Always look smug and in the know is in the manual.
    Screw drivers is in there too.
    Evil and hysterical laughing after dispatch is as well!

    Wow such high standards, too bad we didn't strike you guys might have had to take a pay cut when they realized you cant even deliver packages.

    Bring it on. If they expect me to get anywhere near 70 hours in 5 days I would just call in sick.

    Not that anyone wants to go over 60, but shouldn't we be getting the additional pay on our retro check. I thought all financial improvements in the contract go back to Aug. 1st.

    No way we work 70 hours. After this letter it's obvious the teamsters have our backs and would never allow that!

    Do they have specific language in your contract saying they can force you?

    Vague- but certainly doesn't say they can't. We have a real treat of a BA too. Basically says "...if required to work..."

    Get in the shifter and keep working, you're leaving a lot on the table..

    I think it's the opposite, they can force you unless you have language saying that they can't.
