The 9.5 list went into effect on January 15th. But it’s not too late to sign up.
You can add yourself to the 9.5 list at any time. If you add your name to the 9.5 list after January 15th, it will take one week for your 9.5 rights to go into effect.
Once your 9.5 rights go into effect, you can file grievances if the company tries to work you for more than 9.5 hours on three days a week.
You can add your name to the 9.5 list by filling out a 9.5 Add/Cut form and talking to your shop steward. Print a copy of the 9.5 Add/Cut form here.
Every RPCD can and should sign the 9.5 list. All drivers who had 9.5 rights under the previous contract will maintain their eligibility.
Former 22.4 drivers who are now RPCDs qualify for 9.5 rights if:
- You have a bid route
- You cover the same route for a full week OR you were prevented from covering the same route for a week because management changed your assignment
- You have more than 4 years seniority as a package driver
Even if you are not going to be 9.5 eligible every week, you should still sign the 9.5 list. That way you will get your 9.5 penalty pay whenever you are eligible.
