Is it just me or do our newer drivers not have the same work ethic that most of us have? I will give you two examples of what I am talking about. We had a casual driver fired last Thursday for falsifying records. He was brought back yesterday on a "last chance" agreement, put on road, delivered a whopping total of 5 stops in 2.5 hours and then called the center to say that he was sick to the point where he felt it would be unsafe for him to be on road. The on-car told him to keep going and he would try to find someone to take over. The casual then pulled himself off road, which left the center scrambling to cover the area. I ended up taking 30 residential stops later in the day to help out. We had another casual who has been dealing with tendonitis in his shoulder come in and decline to run that same area, citing concerns with his shoulder. The ironic part is that his shoulder was not an issue when he asked to cover two other routes----it only became an issue when he was directed to run the route in question. The center manager told him that he needed to get medical clearance before he would be able to come back to work. Is it just me or wouldn't you think that a casual who had just gotten his job back would do all that he could to redeem himself? Is it just me or wouldn't you think that a casual trying to get a FT job would not pick and choose which routes to run? I will admit that part of the reason I started this thread is that I was called in off a scheduled day off to work due to the casual with the shoulder issue being declared unfit to work. Have any of you noticed this trend among your younger co-workers?
