    :beersmiley:Entails waiting around 2+ hours after you clock out of your shift then being told they don't need you, then entails mandatory work on holidays and Saturdays , and no! one does not eventually get a ft pkg car driver from air driving, one must sign a ft bid sheet for posted job and highest senority pt employee who signs gets ft bid. :beersmiley:

    Means making $25/hr after a 2 year progression and $33/hr the first day running or picking up ground packages. Or you can unload or load for $10/hr and a 4 year progression to $12/hr.

    There are all different types of Air drivers. They include but are not limited to (FT Air driver, PT Air driver, Sat Air Driver, ETC)

    Depending on your location and what type your pay my very. Some FT Air jobs are 22.3 jobs and your pay is pro-rated based on how may years of service you have.

    The only FT Air Drivers I am familiar with are Art. 22.3 or combo Air Drivers. Are there any FT Air Drivers that only deliver and or pick up air packages only?

    Yes, I know 1. I think he used to do a shuttle run; that run was eliminated, but not his job.

    Is it overtime on Saturdays? If 6th day at express it's OT no matter if PT or not.

    Only OT would be if you have worked 40 hours M-F. Read Art. 40. Art 40 is concessionary language to help UPS compete against FedEx.

    Just checked google maps, about 86 mi one way. There is 1 air car in our fleet that was spec'd out & assigned to our hub for this run.
