I have never minded working christmas eve. Holiday pay + 1.5 hourly rate. Just as long as I get off at a decent time. There are no pickups.

It's an important day. Just hope your management team has a kick-ass plan to get everyone done early!

Working on a Sunday is double time for anyone who is not scheduled to work that day as their regular work day. i.e. sun- thurs.Dont bet on getting any 2x , the company will clean things up on saturday and sunday will be a day of rest.Amen!

I heard a rumor that we'll be working christmas eve. Anyone heard this rumor yet?
We will work Sat but I doubt Sun. If you have 60 hours then no sun or if by Fri then no Sat. Try to reduce send agains so we will not have as much to deliver Sat. They started doing OCA and LTRBX pickups a couple years ago on XMAS EVE but this year will be worse. I bet we have full pick up route Fri and all the LTRBXS and OCAS plus regular Sat pick up stuff too! ZERO FAMILY VALUES AT UPS! I will not be working Sunday period. Next contract should allow us to have off XMAS EVE if it falls on a weekend. Let the sups do it like they use too.

Why should management do it like they used to? Don't they have families like you? You think they want to work a Sunday or Christmas Eve any more than you? You act like your time off is more important than anyone else. It's not. It's the same.
Get a clue.

They'd have to pay me 6.5x my rate to show up on a Sunday! What about church? Not all of us are atheist or Jahova's Whitness.

Braveheart, kind of ironic, that in a post you made a little while ago, you suggested 'nitpicking' back at the company and filing grievance for supvs working. Now in this post, you are saying the supvs should do bargaining unit work. Also, I don't want to preach to anyone, but using a shortcut for Christmas as done above "X" does demean the holiday and the reason why we celebrate. I doubt we will work on Sunday (Christmas Eve) this year, but we will all be out on Saturday. This peak in my opinion will be even harder then last year. Hopefully the planning goes well, and HR can hire enough Peak drivers and helpers.

You spend 24 hours with your family? True families don't care about working until 8pm on xmas eve. True families spend plenty of time together, not just on Xmas eve and Xmas. Plus being that my family loves me, they would understand that it's my job. It's not like we're working chistmas day or anything. For fricks sake, it's the EVE of christmas!

in the 30 years that i worked for big brown i am sure christmas eve had to fall on a sunday at least once. i can never remember working on a christmas eve that fell on a sunday. so do not worry and let your blood pressure drop a little
 
last christmas we wound up working on christmas eve {saturday} but they had to have sups from other centers come in to chauffer us with our 60hrs in around.
