You may not be able to stick together with each other, so keep that in mind and make arrangements for that possiblility NOW. Good luck.

I am happy they are taking off the steps from the trucks. I am hoping that this will eventually slow everyone down a little.

"Sanitation workers who ride on the back of the truck in between stops drive Harry Nespoli crazy. “Riding the step” is not illegal, but it’s very dangerous. “I’m tired of going to the hospitals and seeing young kids with cracked heads; with broken arms; with crushed legs,” from falling off the back step, Nespoli says. He has tried for years to get the department to burn that step off the trucks. “The answer from management [against] cutting down the steps was, ‘Will that slow the men down from finishing the route?’ And I just turned around and said, ‘I’m not even looking at that. I’m looking at the man in the hospital.”

If everyone just walked from stop to stop because of no step they would not be able to finish on time and lines would be left. I walk when i get baskets and you can't finish in the time they give you, my garage dosen't expect you to finish baskets (formans) they know it is more then you can do they just want to see you do a good job on what you can and take your brakes when you are suppose to for the time you are suppose to.

Alright I am not on the job but what I am seeing here is that there tends to be 2 schools of thought.

a. Finish as fast as possible and go back to the garage to do nothing.
b. Pace yourself take your time(work like a gentlemen).

I think a. is definately the most enticing but the most sesceptable to trouble. If you are sitting around the house sleeping there is more likelyhood of somebody busting your b***s and changing things around so that will no longer be possible. The city doesnt understand because they dont have to break their asses doing the work. I think SanMen should be entitled to sit around and do nothing for half of the day given the job that they do. However common sense would tell you that b. is the safe bet. And that goes for any job. Slow down pace yourself. Look busy and everyone is happy. I am in a television union and it is pretty much the same. Now there arent the repercussions of finishing early that SanMen have, but management does look down upon people that are sitting around doing nothing. Maybe one day they will try to squeeze two jobs into one. If I am too busy to do two jobs for the price of one it will never happen. Everybody needs to do the right thing for the union and their union brothers even if it isnt the easy way out. Food for thought.
