    driver won a bid on a route 2 weeks ago, but he does not want it anymore because another route is opening up due to retirement. is there a waiting time for him to wait to be allowed to bid again. I want to bid on the retired driver's route and was wondering. none of the other drivers want to move routes.

    It's in your contract book

    When they rebid his rt anyone with less seniority then the guy who retired can bid it.

    If he is still within 30 days they shouldn't rebid a new list but rather just go to the next driver on the current bid sheet.

    Here, if you win a bid, you cannot bid gain for a year, unless it is higher hourly rate.

    We have a local practice that allows any driver to make 3 moves per year and they don't have to wait to bid.
    Local practices rule.

    Southern contract is no bidding for 6 months.

    Going to have to read your supplement. In my building the guy that signed the bid can turn it down, but cannot bid again for 1 year.

    Local practice superceeds any other language.
    This may be correct in that local. Our drivers, when not happy with the route they bid whether they did or didn't drive the new route, have the option to bid their old route back when it goes back up for bid. That's move #2.

    Our drivers have to stay on a bid route that they win for 6 months. They can't rebid until that time. I would think it would follow how they're treating the bids currently. If they're honoring your contract language and haven't let anyone wiggle out of a bid for say 2 years, and they now are going to allow it, it may not be a past practice anymore. They weren't following how the past practice was being done if you follow me.

    thanks for all the input!

    i was curious because I'm in a small center with 8 routes and 6 of the drivers are preloading the trucks and the retired person has a preloading route. and no Orion here. have to input addresses still.

    I'm definitely talking to a steward cause I don't want to lose out on this.

    Look under seniority and job assignments, and package car vacancies in your supplement.

    Man you guys locals suck when it comes to bids.

    Yup! How does a local, or better yet UPS allow guys to come of routes whenever they feel like it, as one previous poster said. It must be a nightmare to make sure all the paperwork is up to snuff.

    He can bid on the new route even though he just got a new route. In my center a driver went through 4 routes in 1 year. San Diego.

    He can bid on it. Can you bid on his? That he is vacating. This may be a bid and a place
