Work Related / Pick

I want to commend Anthony on a job well done at the Pick today. For his first time as Shop Steward it was the smoothest pick in my 20 years here.
Work Related / Run Documentation
July 23, 2022, 01:41:33 AM
I'm here 20 years and throughout all that time every year we have to update our runs with the new times, active stops and # of children at each stop. And every year without fail OPT does absolutely nothing with our updates.
The reason 15 summer school runs were deleted starting this coming Monday is that last week we all handed in updated documentation and OPT actually put those updates into the system.
My Summer School Run had 21 stops but only 7 were active in the AM. I adjusted the times for the 7 active stops and put down 0 children for the other 14 stops. Well, on my card for Monday morning my new route sheet not only shows just those 7 stops but also the times I documented.
In the PM I have the same school with the same stops, so OPT also adjusted the route as I documented it.
Now here's the BAD PART!!!!
At that school there are (was) three buses/routes. OPT deleted one of those routes and split those stops and children up and put them on my bus and the other bus!
Obviously us as Union Members and the owners as well we DO NOT want to lose runs (even at this time if we do not have the manpower).
So just keep this in mind come September when we're asked to document our runs. I'm sure you know what I'm saying. Also keep in mind that all the buses have GPS and all the buses possibly may have these new phone systems or whatever it's called. But even with that, I think it will be a couple of years down the road before the students actually have ID that shows that they boarded the bus. For the foreseeable future at least definitely for General Ed runs
OPT will only know if you're going to the stops and will not no how many if any children boarded the bus. Don't be lazy and make sure you pull the parking brake and open the door at the stops!

As we end another school year and I'm going  on my 20th year at Pioneer I just want to say thanks to Andy & Ernie. As I'm sure most of you know the both of them are retiring. The two of them have been in this Industry for nearly 30 years or more, respectively. During my 20 years Ernie has been my Asst. Steward, Steward and Delegate. For the last 10 years Andy has been my the Asst. Steward or Steward.
I can on and on but to make it short I just want to acknowledge the time & dedication that they have put it on our behalf. On top of that I got to meet two great guys that are just nice people. Now, I have two good friends for the rest of my life!
Thanks for the Memories

Work Related / Lowe’s parking

I heard that we're not allowed to park in Lowe's AGAIN!!!!
Over the past few years this is the third time that I can recall this happening. I just can't understand why drivers & I'd assume matrons just keep messing up a good thing.

1181 Matters / Safety Checks
October 30, 2021, 08:53:17 AM
For those of us that didn't have an accident last year keep an eye out next week for ur safety check. I believe we're supposed to receive it by Friday 11/5. Also I forget if it's changed but even though the majority of us have direct deposit I still believe that the safety checks will be live checks.

Work Related / Phone ID on buses
July 27, 2021, 02:17:09 AM
Stopped by the yard today to drop off my medical and was talking to Bobby. He told me there is going to be some kind of new thing on the buses when each child gets on he has to swipe something that automatically lets the board of Ed know that that child is on the bus and if he doesn't have his ID card then you have to program his name in. Each driver has to go into the drivers room every morning and get some kind of phone or something. Maybe Buzz can get the specifics of whatever the hell it is. I see a lot of guys retiring.
