69 hours? in one week. Im having problems with this excuse
It’s a gimmick that I saw frequently with Metro out of DC.
The Union controls job hires and makes it all difficult. So, few hires are made, and overtime is viewed as absolutely mandatory and a wonderful deal after forty-hours a week. Needless to say, the accident rate with overtime drivers....is a major issue, which the management refuses to deal with.
A hint....go and ask this Chicago gal her schedule over the past six months, and note overtime usage, and the amount of pay she was taking in. Don’t be shocked when you note that she regularly did fifty or more hours a week. And don’t be shocked when they fire her, then a year later...reinstate her because of union pressure (that was another DC Metro regular event).
69 hrs is either fraud or sheer irresponsibility in a transportation worker who controls a vehicle that carries passengers
“69 hours? in one week. Im having problems with this excuse.”
My work week is 84 hours. With drive time, it’s 96,but I get 7 days off.
I’ve worked in Union shops at 3 companies and never has the Union hired or set how much overtime was worked. In fact the company would push for mandatory overtime which the Union fought against. The Company said they would rather have us work overtime rather than hire more employees. I think because I ran 2 machining centers and was paid $30.00 and they were charging S180.00 an hour for each machine, $360.00 total. That why they still found it profitable to pay me $60.00 when I was getting doubletime.
