    Default Anyone want to talk Contract?

    There is currently some debate in Indiana on wether or not 10 percenters still exist or not. I can't get an answer from my BA or Stewards but a couple stations have filed a grievance over them trying to take them away.

    Anyone have any thouughts?

    You're not being ignored macchan. I'm just not sure of the DHL employees amongst our population here.

    I would chime in but I'm not sure what a 10 percenter is or does.

    Ironically we have 2 percenters at our work. It was a term developed between me and my dispatcher. It is because of the attitude of the company that 98% of the workers go thru the motions and collect a check every two weeks. This leaves 2% who care about the freight, the rules and the customers, hence a 2 percenter.

    Macchan;

    I am retired from DHL. By 10 % do you mean the bottom of the list? That is all I have heard of 10 %ers. If it is something else please enlighten me.

    10% have always been part of the contract which Management was able to have 10% of employees not have routes and used as swing/fill in drivers as needed. Never had to guarantee them pay.

    In the new contract found on IBOT website they have the same language but
    are trying to lay off 10% saying its company choice and they don't have to have them.

    Well 10% in this contract our guarnteed 40 hours of work so management wants to lay them off and not go with any. The language is ambiguous and I am not sure what other stations are doing. Is it mandatory or company choice station by station? To bad no DHL people come here this is a great site.

    We didn't have any 10 % ers at any of the barns I worked at. I appreciate your reply but I have no experience or expertise in the 10 % area.

    Actually I am sure that although there are many duties I must attend to online, I find a chance every now and again.

    I am telling you to ask your union officials and hold them accountable because they came selling this. How does brad slawson back out of the picture now???
    Call the IBT see if we are relying on someone new???
    Who is hamilton????

    OK you wanted some DHL on the site? Now you got some.
    Have a nice weekend
