We are a formula office. A route went up for bid with the relief day that the previous carrier had. Our senior PTF got the route. I believe that all the regular carriers can now change their relief day but I can not find it in the contract

The “formula” tells mgmt how many NON-Saturday Relief Days are the maximum. If it shows more people need to be moved from a weekday to a Saturday, that is to be offered by Seniority & forced by Junior. If it shows that mgmt can move carriers off of Saturday, they do NOT have to... but it is in their best interest to do so. Movement FROM a Saturday to a weekday should be offered (as usual) by Seniority & forced by Junior.

A couple of us carriers offered a few years back to move FROM a Saturday IF mgmt would allow us to move to Monday. They agreed & mgmt did not need to force anyone to change their K-day.

Where’s the worksheet....is there a way I can calculate it out to find out how many routes can stay a k?

The worksheet you reference doesn’t tell you how but I found it by entering formula office, Choosing your j or k day

The only Relief Day changes that can be forced by contract is when the Formula shows more Carriers needed to be off on Saturday than is currently.

But a K day stays with the route, not with the carrier.

A carrier can only ask to switch K day.

On a side note, is there somewhere written that every formula office is required to have one rotating Fri/Sat relief day...where every other week, the carrier has Fri/Sat off??
