    Being on a sleeper, one is on duty while the other picks up hours. I have never been on duty while my partner is on duty. It says BOTH drivers get paid while on delay. Maybe I am missing something here? Oh yeah, I'll take them up on the dock work offer. Just call the freight delayed because of mismanagement.

    Past practice would say otherwise.

    Prior to being union both drivers got paid while on delay.
    Prior to being union both drivers got paid while on breakdown.
    Prior to being union both drivers got paid for drops and hooks and or fueling. We always split ours so in essence we got paid for D/H's while in the Bunk.
    Prior to being union both drivers got paid for chaining...if both performed the action.

    All while taking hours logged in the sleeper berth.

    We still split miles. We still split breakdown.

    Come to think of it, according to Mr. Overnite's theory of logging the time we are paid for.....

    We get paid for our miles (on a sleeper team) at $.3025 (full rate) for all miles the truck runs.:shift:

    According to his logic we should both be on duty for the whole trip.
    My paycheck doesn't show $.605 for half of the trip.:TR10driving03:

    ...Overnite are we talking home domicile or in the system somewhere ? Something basically like this was batted about in the beginning with meet drivers.Say terminal x run 000 driver is going to be x amount of time late..so terminal y run 000 was told to go all the way.....now when the our BA got involved he said motel pay was due from the time of the arrive and drop/hook/fuel was finished...so this practice quickly died on the vine...now if a team comes into a terminal and central wants them to move a specific load and its not ready......now for me I see this as a safety issue..ABSOLUTLY NO TEAM MEMBER HAS ANY BUSINESS WORKING A FREAKING DOCK ...PERIOD...the guy I road with was as trusthworhly as they come..but a sleeper is no place to put anymore stain than them dang things do by themselves..no but hell no thats nothing but a tragedy looking for a place to happen...matter of fact I`m of the opinion there should be a minimal dispatch....Sleepers are a animal unless you run one for a while you cant understand that life...:ranting2:

    I agree but how is it any different than a minihub driver working 13-14 hours a day?

    ..for me its the quality of rest you get...those trucks suck in regards to a place to sleep,and recharge for your next work day..you eat and sleep in a rolling machine..honestly my friend there is no comparison...never have I ever been so relieved than the day that run was cut...hubs are no joke I agree,but those campers are miserable..

    BA told me last night another letter of understanding was also signed>>>get this>>> parcel pack/feeder drivers are going to start picking up UPS Freight skids at places where there's parcel shipments already there,and I guess feeder drivers will deliverfreight to UPS Freight docks....

    Said UPS Freight losing money hands over fists and it's because we're missing pickups, don't have room on the trailers and blah, blah, blah, (BS)

    I'm feeling really bad about my union representation (or the lack there of) right now

    Can somebody post this letter of understanding from the regionals out of Chicago I'd like to see this BS in writing

    If there is any truth to this...

    I wonder if Brown is going to follow suit with the BS they have put some through over here (in Freight)...

    Is Brown going to pay these drivers a lower rate of pay - for performing work "outside" of Their classification? :biglaugh:

    But extra board runs ARE NOT guaranteed runs, they work ONLY if the freight is there,and so you are not getting paid if you do not run!!

    I am in full agreement with you, the NG sighned of on the bid prevails unfortunatly. Unless it is busy the company can work around seniority in this case, we have filed on it. We shall see what happens.
