Please explain details about how you would get
paid. We just signed our contract and we purt a clause
in there about ABC pay. It has to be COMPLETELY
voluntary IF the union accepts it for submission to vote on
by union members. Personally, I cant see how a
person would want to rely on piece work to make a
paycheck. If youre not picking cases you dont make
anything. We have plenty of nights where the computer or
printer breaks down and no labels are generated for us to
use. Standing around not making anything under those
pay guidelines. Fortunely, I dont have to pick
anything. I am a fork operator.
offered you a big bonus? Of course not. Upper
mamagement salaries are determined by what the market will
bring them. The market for experienced and producing
management is very good right now, and SYSCO has to pay them
to attract and keep the good ones. Don't complain.
These guys and gals have the companies future at stake,
and any wrong move they make( or don't make) can cost
potentially hundreds of jobs, yes, the same ones who will
gripe about their bonuses. What are they worth?? You
figure it out. Its your job they have in their hands.
At a union house breakdown and delay time
(customer not open etc.)should be paid at an hourly rate
called delay time it is the job of the BA to see that
this happens. Before any ABC plan is put in place all
delay time,mileage,cases,stop money,meal money,extra
work (going back out after trip)MUST be negotiated.
Sccaz our ABC is this....
This is for
or for pallet stops....$1.43 then
stops and miles
No breakdown pay
$17.21 hrly for driver assist
now after 8 it is over $25 per hour...
Ive asked for specifics and havent read any yet.
How much per case? Average cases per
night(warehouse). Drivers... How much per case? I already know
average per truck.
At KC, a picker would get about
1000-1200 cases for an 8 hour night. maybe 1600-1800 for a
12 hour night.
My opinion for ABC is to scrap
it. I wouldnt be on it if it were offered because I
am a fork operator. 10 cents a case wouldnt add up
to being more than hourly at my rate of $15.41hr.
Now a NEW hire could do better than the $10.50 they
would start out at. For them, it would probably be a
Also, what do you do if you are not
able to pick anything due to no labels, shortage of
carts, etc. Are you doing 'busy' work? If so, then youre
working for free.
We had one driver bring back an
entire stop (150 cs) because he got there 2 hrs before
place opened. He decided he wasnt going to sit around
and wait, so he came back. Obviously it has its down
points, which I think outnumber the good.
HAWKER ... I drive about 45 miles a day and go
out with about on a adverage 500 cases with a bunch
of basement stops and i even have one stop that is 2
floors up 32 steps, you tell me if this plan is good for
me .....one more thing im at 63 thousand for the
year im not going to make that on F-U-C-K the driver
Hawker.....The ONLY way your drivers are making
the money is if they are getting miles...And if you
are in the NE then I know what house you are from,
and yes, your drivers to make money.....
houses that are located in major cities won't make the
money your house does, because they don't cross over
into your area....
Plus if I am correct your house
is in a "right to work state"....We are a union
state, proud, strong and intellegent....
Unions are a
nessary evil, and if you don't know that watch Hoffa or
read the NAFTA plan.
