I over heard some city drivers talking Friday about pay cuts in Springfield. So I poked my nose in a little and asked what it was about. They said the supervisors was calling all the city drivers Friday and changing all their start times from 9:00 to 9:30 and they will be losing money because they have to be back at the same time as always. They said every year the SCM backs up their start times for a numbers crunching gain. One driver said they used to start at 8:00 a while back. But what REALLY shocked me was they said their leaving freight EVERY day at customers because they don't have enough drivers in the city because numbers won't allow it. As a road driver I have a problem with this. If they're leaving freight now then that means starting later they will really be leaving freight. I'm going to do some more poking around today and see what else I can find out. Just curious what's happening at other centers? Or is this just our center?
