Anyone see this letter yet or can post a copy? Apparently the 15.08 forms for OT are going to be simplified, and we will no longer have to inform supervisors at the beginning of the day that we will be doing OT. The CEO recognizes that parcel volumes are on the rise, and that they contribute to overtime.
This is good news, because we all hate having to work 10-12 hours and then get harassed by supervisors who claim we can't do our job properly.
My question is, what is going to be done for the holiday season coming up? Parcel volumes are going to be, once again, record-setting volumes. That's great that I can now do OT without any questions asked, but that still doesn't solve the problem of me being overloaded and overburdened every day, working over 8 hours.
What I need during the holiday season, is some relief. I need parcels taken off my route, or a split. I can't constantly work overtime every day. So will I now be harassed when I say I'm too sick/tired to do overtime? Their reasoning will be "hey, we have made it EASY for you to claim OT, so don't tell me you can't do OT". Hope not...
