    You guys choosing to not run ORION are the problem. Do what they say and run it into the ground. It's the only way it's going to be fixed.

    One of the things that killed us in 2013 was the calendar.
    Thanksgiving was on the 28th that year, as late as it could possibly be, which meant that there were only 16 weekdays between Black Friday and Christmas Eve.
    This was also before we were set up to run full shifts on Saturdays.
    Thanksgiving was on the 22nd this year, as early as it can possibly be, so we have 4 additional weekdays between Black Friday and Christmas Eve to work with, which will be a huge help.

    13.5hr laid time Monday, 13.25hr paid time Tuesday.

    Aiming for another 13.25 tomorrow so rest of week is OT.

    Then a 12 on Thursday and an 8 on Friday... or a 13 Thursday and not have 8 to drive Friday. LOL


    Better not suddenly spring some 70hr :censored2: on us come Thursday. I won’t accept it announced in Friday let alone the whole 6th punch.

    ‘Fatigue’ wont be a lie.
     
  4. In my Bay Area, CA center, management is upset drivers are going over 8 hours. I was actually "observed" for a few stops by management that just "happened to be in the area" today. Our OT has been MIA this week.

    At least we won't be the only ones drowning.

    Never, we have been planning for peak for 6 months now...

    And yet we still cant figure out why it never goes as planned.

    Peak comes around the same time every year. You think they would figure it out by now.

    I have been instructed by my supervisor to not follow ORION.
    So I turn RDO back on in the morning and work as directed.

    The ODO solution is turned off in our hub. Shocked that I'm hearing it's not in different locations.

    Sucks to hear people are having these issues out there. I was bumped today and went home. The hardest thing I've done all day is clean up a drop of queso that fell onto the floor from my chip. Otherwise I've been playing video games, watching shows, and taking a nap.
