    Default Happy New Year To Me From YRC

    Howdy fellow teamsters,

    Today the tm at 896 came out to give us our assignments and tell us our bids were cancelled, I have a bid run, without giving a choice on what to pick (senior man) he threw a rail manifest in front of me, I told him "what crap is this" he turned around as he was walking away and asked me to repeat what I had said, so I did. He told me to get a rep, LOL!!! So in his office he had us sitting there for a few minutes so I asked "what am I in here for", his response was "just wait I'm trying to find something about using the word "crap", WTF??? I told him if he was giving me a letter than do it in a timely manner otherwise I'm going to punch out because I'm not feeling well and I'm going to see a Dr. (actually my shoulder arthritis is flaring up, very painful)" he was quick to say "you'll be getting a letter for not completing your bid then" I said "well you've already told us our bids were cancelled, D'OH!!!

    What a jackass that TM is. This is a regular work day around here. No bids cancelled. Sounds like the dork wants to treat it like a straight time holiday. Everyone should file for 8 hours of holiday pay.

    We always had New Years eve as a holiday.. A few guys worked sucking up the overtime.. Bids were always cancelled on a holiday "BUT" it was posted days before.. I always thought the only time a TM could cancel bids without warning was during a weather type of emergency..

    Days before Thanksgiving and Easter and New Years Eve.....they usually post a sheet in advance stating a lack of work. This year TM didn't. It says to sign if you want off and columns for sick, vacation, personal or book off unpaid due to lack of work.

    They use guys in reverse seniority order forcing from the bottom. For however many guys they need added to the guys who choose to work.
    It's become a bit tense because it wasn't posted in advance. Last minute on Monday it was posted. Should've been completed fully signed by Friday noon......now we have tension cause TM didn't do it right last week. Quick decisions were made to cancel bids......might have to file to ensure it's done right next time.

    Its my opinion that Kickass' BA and Local President should be called and b*****d at by any and everyone who reads this crap......They must have plenty of time on their hands since they seem not to work too hard at their Freight barn.
    Not our Local?
    So what....they're wrecking our union.

    Kickass works under the Western States supplement as I do. Unless they have some sort of agreements with their local, this is a regular work day. They violated his seniority 9 ways from Sunday.

    This would have been a "fun" day. Accept the assignment, complaining all the way. Work as safely as possible for the shift. Grab a time slip on the way out the door and file your way into the TM's most hated list for next year. I would find the Jr. Driver with the most OT and get every penny of it

    Already have my grievance filled out, I'm not looking for money since I went home early but they should have put up a sign up sheet for the day so people that did come in knew what they were in for, not this bs that runs were cancelled and rail work is what you're doing, like it or not.
