Overtime/scheduling/making of shifts

Posted on Wed, Feb 22, 2012 at 10:18 AM

For the life of me I cannot understand why the public doesn't see why the city blames the source of overtime is caused by the method in which the drivers pick their work. Management makes up the schedules and the shifts. There are 8 and 10 hour shifts that have 25 or more minutes of overtime built right into the shifts. There are 168 shifts that have as much as an hour of overtime built right into them. A good number of these shifts are on the Sunday schedule. So as you can see the drivers are not responsible for the way in which the schedules and the shifts are made up. I have not included the shifts that have anywhere from 5 mins to 25 mins, and there are a good many of these shifts as well. So come on people, open your eyes and see just what the city is trying to get you to see. Binding arbitration is the way to go. Let's get the buses back on the road. —Bus Operator
