Of course I'd suggest they swear the truck was A number 1 when they left the garage.
You get a 10 min break for a replacement truck. It's for a load out. If they are sending you a truck so that you can complete the route, then you get a 10 min break in the field.

You also get a 10 min break after the first hour of overtime.

So what your saying is that if I load out I get a 10 min break when the replacement shows up?
What if the truck is down in the field and they send a replacement truck?

I never heard that before. Do you know where in the contract it says we get a 10 min break after getting a replacement truck.

hey all, dont mean to hijack a discussion in progress, but I have a question ( I have searched and found nothing)..... I am in the low 900's, after taking the test I went through a whole country song of crap( got laid off,got divorced, lost my dog, and my pickup truck and my house to the ex), ended up moving out of state, missed my date for the physical and dont have any of my notices. If i call the automated line my name is still on the list, but considered not qualifiedfor certification....is there any way to get my number back to active and get caught up with the physical and whatnot...I have tried calling dcas but after 2 hours on hold a few times over i gave up....any help would be great. Thanks.

Page 24 in your contract book. "In the event a truck is replaced in the field for reasons other than a breakdown, an Employee assigned to such replacement truck will receive a 10 minute rest period." So if you were to down that truck Sputnikk you would not have been entitled to a 10 minute break.

Go to 1 Centre St., 21st. Fl., DCAS Certification Unit. Tell them that you want to be put back on the list.

Correct. The only other way to handle this situation... although I think it is Manhattan we are speaking of, in this instance, is (if you were aware and thought it a meaningful venture) to work the route as late as possible. If you were to work past cut-off time and then load out without finishing then a replacement truck would be in order. Along with your 10 minute break. Followed by work in the street.... followed by a truck in the mechanic bay that evening!

However, I know how close the dump is so I would assume your cut-off is fairly late in the day. Also, I highly doubt, in a garage where doing what your told is the norm that you were anticipating this. Probably had the bulk of the route finished and really just wanted to squeeze it all onto one load if possible... so, in many ways (and sadly so) the issue is moot.
