    Our grizzle has been trimmed, now we have small pack supervisors (rejects so they say) invading and trying to run us the same way.
    We are having a higher turnover of supervisors lately.

    Hmm one of the issues I always had when I was still P&D was melting Freight with Small Pack.
    As a lot of freight needs a dock,or a fork lift,where small pack can jump out of their delivery van & run to make their deliveries.
    The time thing can not be compared between the two divisions.

    Also leanning on freight employees to be super performers, takes a toll on management,& every other worker as well.
    I know just at my local terminal that I keep in touch with,they have had a lot of dock & drivers,now a night dispatcher resign.
    They just couldn't put up with the stress.
    Not to highjack your topic Dockworker but freight should never be put under the stress & pressure to perform like small pack,as the results can be very negative.

    I am so happy I was able to retire when I did.

    This company treats its ops mangers and sups worse than they treat hourly employees, by a long shot.
