I have been on a bid satellite route for the past 4 years, as no one else has wanted this route. My route is always the last one to go, and is usually open when it gets to me. This year a driver with 3 months seniority on me bid on this route. When he took over the route, he realized that he did not want to drive it and wanted to go back to being a cover driver, which would give me my route back. I am now back on it, after one week off of it. I am now hearing rumors that management is not going to let him come off of the route and that he has to stay on that route for a year. What is the policy on coming off of a bid route to become a cover driver. At first our center manager said that all he had to do was write a letter stating that he wanted off of bid route to become a cover driver. What can be done?
