    ....recently moved to a new building (hub) into a clerk-sort combo job. I Get there and management tells me that they're not going to have me doing EITHER half of my bid. I understand one half of a 22.3 combo can be changed, but both halves? Can I back out of this job since they aren't giving me what I bid on and have no intentions of following the bid? Do I File a grievance? Just curious.

    i heard if they change 50% of your job then you can get out of it.

    If you're under the New England Supplement, Article 57, Section 2B(1) now says,
    Article 57, Section 2D has always said,
    The 50% rule doesn't apply to 22.3 people, as I read it. Look into filing a grievance.

    That's something I've surely never heard! :biting:

    The 50% change rule is true.
    But be careful , when they list what other jobs are still open. You could get something far worse.

    Nothing's worse than 8 hours of load/unload, but I know what you're getting at. :knockedout:

    I'll be by Friday, please don't RTS my item. IF you're not on the road ;)

    Thanks Jon for the response.

    Yes, the new language with biannual bid is there. The problem is, define "moves". Yes, I was moved. :sick: It's sickening. I can only imagine UPS will find a way to exploit the language indicating that there was only a promise of moving the employee, but not necessarily moved to their bid.

    Not to wish bad upon anyone, but I'd love to see another example of this and the recourse taken.

    We are having a big problem in my hub. Mgmt. is using the 22.3 jobs to manipulate workers. I am in a right to work state and the company is giving easy jobs to freeriders and workers who are essentially mgmt. suck ups. A few stewards have even made deals to shut their eyes to contract violations in order to get easy jobs. Active stewards and activists are thrown into the load-during the night shift. I have tried to file on a couple points-but the language for 22.3 is minimal. Of course, retaliation for union activity is a labor charge but at this juncture we can't get a lot of support from the NLRB. I continue to police the contract and file grievances when it is needed. When I load I go at a safe speed- they are coming at me from every direction though. Does anyone have any advice or is anyone else dealing with this?:biting:

    You're damned if you do, you're damned if you don't. I know the feeling well, too.:sick:

    Yeah! Didn't want to "go nuts" as to detail...

    UPS squeezed about 8 work days of 8+ hours of labor, sorting boxline 4 hours then 4+ loading trailers.

    I couldn't do that anymore and my body was falling apart. I'm about 5'9 148lb and it was too much; already drained by lunch! After 3:30-4am, I could hardly walk and that is not an overstatement.

    10,000 safe work days must mean something because my first half of bid (PAS clerk) they moved me from sorting boxline to in the office doing computer work. Can't complain! although it isn't a union job :sick:

    anyway, squeaky wheel gets the grease so it seems.

    still waiting for my last check in the previous building from 3 weeks ago! going to have to grieve to get that money I think.

    IDLWTM; time to change your handle.:funny:

    MR_Vengeance; I'm a 22.3 currently working Tues-Sat and I bid Mon-Fri , yet no one has spoken to me about when I'll move . Other junior employees have been moved already. I too would like to work the job I had bid for, actually I would make about $20 more a week. But most importantly I would be able to enjoy 3 day weekends ( when there is a Monday holiday ) something that current Tues-Sat employees are denied.
