Back At It With UPS!!!!!

Discussion in 'UPS Discussions' started by UPS_CDOT_DRIVER, Jun 16, 2016.

  1. Well here we go again!!!! It's round 2 for me as a seasonal package car driver. Unfortunately I was told by the center manager today that if I didn't leave early during last peak I would have gained seniority on the 2nd week of Jan. Anyway no big deal I will do the best I can and can hopefully gain seniority before Jan of 2017. My question is will that be possible or do they only give seasonals seniority in the beginning of the year? Anyway day 3 with a supervisor down. I think I did good so wish me luck. Thanks all.

    If UPS works you after the end of the summer season (Labor Day) you can gain seniority. It can happen although rare.
     
  3. Ahhhh that would be nice. Now with that if they tell me he you are gonna have a week off then bring me back would that be considered winter seasonal?

    I was referring to the volume spike.

    Well if you want to go there,it never ends here. Volume drops=routes cut=peak stop counts.

    We have peaks and valleys that vary from route to route. This is my slow season as college is on summer break. My Peak will start the end of August and last for 3-4 weeks.

    You are right, though, in that the route cutting has gotten out of hand.
     
  13. November 1st. Here. As long as all seniority drivers are working

    What a raw deal, I'm glad the seasonal driving language is only in select supplements. Good luck to you.

    Doesn't bother me, as a matter of fact peak is easier than the rest of the year in feeders. They put so many extra's on and gypsies I end up with a lot of down(nappy) time.
