    driver in central division. I am going to be hitting 60 hours after tonight. They originally said if you had over 3 hours available at the end of the night you were being forced tomorrow.

    Now they are saying everyone is forced tomorrow. My question is can they make us ride around with a seasonal and run the route for them without actually driving? Also if they can what are the hour restrictions? 70?

    Plan on talking to my steward tonight

    As long as the seasonal pushes the gas and brake, and you steer, it's not a violation.

    Call in tomorrow morning. Tell them you are too fatigued to work and are so fatigued you can’t even drive to work. Dot allows you to take your self out of service if you feel you will be a hazard.

    Some people just don’t want to do it. Money isn’t everything. I did not work 1 single sat last year. I called in “fatigued” every sat. Never got disciplined.

    Add slum lord, mechanic, barber and tons of other things. The world doesn’t revolve around ups like some of you think.

    60/70 rules only apply to driving so yes, technically they can make you work as a jumper.

    They have to tell you by end of shift Friday to force you Sarurday.

    Ask down, force up iby seniority.

    If they have it, forbid them from calling it.

    I’m out of hours so management said I have to work as a helper with an out of town supervisor who will drive. Imo they are punishing me by making me work in an extended area that Is my bid route so I will be working most of the day however someone with less seniority has very few hours left can work and go home before I do? Shouldn’t the less seniority guys have to stay on the clock until I get in. Doesn’t make much sense considering everything is supposed to run by seniority. Seniority is the reason they give for making me work since a senior driver “could” file a grievance if I don’t show up to work Saturday. If that’s the case then lower seniority drivers shouldn’t be getting off before me. Thanks for the help
