    Not here I'm blessed that I work in a strong local with a hardass president and business agents.

    grgrcr88 No It's not green grocer!

    I hope there are no drivers laid off. If so I hope someone is filing grievances for them

    peak is why i give no breaks to drivers during the year

    they have to be pre-conditioned to doing the right thing, or everything goes to :censored2::censored2::censored2::censored2: in the winter

    If you continue to screw up and cause yourself to get a verbal, what does that have to do with peak?

    I think the point he's trying to convey is, any other time, they would be written up. But, because it's peak, they are only getting verbals. I am guessing.

    In 23 years of driving I've never had a dispatch over 13 and never delivered a box past 8 o'clock. Where do you people work?

    count yourself lucky! In my local for the past several years the dispatch has been steadily creeping up,and with the membership not being able to file over 9.5 grievances in November and December we will soon be working until 930 pm or later every day
