    Just curios if anyone knows what the language is if you are a bid driver being bumped by a higher senority bid driver whose route has been temp. removed.

    Have been told this cannot happen unless the higher senority driver has been laid off for 4 weeks, then if he chooses to bump, it becomes his route.

    I havent a clue anyone heard of such a thing and where is it written in contract book if this is not fact.

    Thanks for any info ahead of time.

    Matt, seniority and bumping should be covered in your regional Supplement.

    Every Supplement is different.

    Here in New England there is one proceedure for most of the year, and a different proceedure if the original route is abolished as a result of "post-Christmas volume decline."

    He can bump anyone with lower seniority in his loop if his route has been collapsed. Once he bids on a new route, the bumped driver should be able to regain his old route back.

    Is the rte a training rte? if it is, he can not bump you off your rte.

    See the highlighted section of the quoted post and disregard everything else you read in this thread.
    Consult your local steward/business agent.
    We are all subject to different regional and local supplements/seniority applications.

    The bumped driver with high senority should get the right to work before you! However..if..you have already" bid" on the route nobody should be able to bump you unless the "nornal driver returns ..or..the route is rebid..If the route is in and both are working ..the bid coverage driver has the rights to that route!!
