    Currently driving at express full time and ups twilight loading. So the driving list is down to as little as 2-4 months and I'm next up in seniority but one HR guy told me yesterday that I have to wait 6 months to be eligible and another said that's not the case? Anyone know if this is a true policy?
    Only worried about this due to peak coming up and my 6 months is in December and I can't be doing 18hour days with both

    It depends on how bad they need drivers.

    Driving supervisors are saying they need them desperately. There are 5 openings to go ft and no one wants to drive

    As long as you are an employee, not sure why they'd say that.
    I'd just play their game. It's only an extra couple months.

    If already made your 30 days and are a upstanding union paying member and meet all the requirements as stated on the bid sheet, then you are eligible to drive.

    All drivers nationwide who has made progression get paid on average ~$35/hr. Not just in Nebraska.

    Thanks for the help guys. Just talked to the steward and he's saying there is a 6 month policy but it can be waived. On the list and hoping for the best
