Back in the 80s the truck was a three man truck, in the 90s they mad it a two man truck. That's route extension or where it derived from.

I thought truck money (the 44 and change)was from the three man to two man and route extensions (11 and change)means what it says the extension of some routes.

I just asked an old timer here at work and he confirmed that route extension was actually that, route extension back in the day the routes were extended as a productivity. And I know some guys don't want to hear it but as far as dumping. It is in our contract, someone has to dump for us to get some more productivity. That will give us more money in the next contract.

Whats up Pipez, I am glad your OJT went well. We did FEL training last night, which was fun also, but after a few hours in the truck it kind of gets a little boring. But as you said, much better then sitting in a class room.....later.

I don't know if any of you August guys were sent to QW-2 for OJT, but yesterday when I left QW-3 at around 4:15 they were still waiting for their OJT guy to show up. Not a good way to start your first day on the field guys.
Remember (I can only speak for myself, but i heard this a million times) GET TO WORK ON TIME, DON'T DO DRUGS, YOU WILL HAVE A GREAT CAREER!!!!

Dump money: 5.53

Total 61.62
i see people were talking about the nypd getting raises but look at it this way

61.62 truck money a day x 5 (days in the week) = 308.10 a week

now if you make a truck everyday that turns out to be almost 15,000 a year extra money

so if u add base 67,000 + 15000 (truck money) = 82,000 (more then the nypd)

and thats not even counting o.t or sundays or night diff.

ive seen senior guys in my garage make 100,000+ in a year

so i dont think the money is that bad but i do expect a bigger raise next contract neg.

Differential is not made by all, so if you include that you have to include our nights and longevity. Police get all that and get vacation and holiday checks which we do not. That brings top pay guys to around 91,000 a year as per the paper. Our contract does not mature until 2011 while theirs expires next year we have two years to hit 67,000 they have already hit their top pay per contract.
