    We have a feeder driver from a different center starting out of our building on a regular bases. Was told by manager they can do that. We have our own relief drivers in pkg. They're using him to cover CPU volume out of his center but often joins up with our CPU driver to help with volume.

    govols019 You smell that?

    If he's running CPU from his center then why would he start at your center? That makes no sense.

    I've given up on trying to figure out how and why feeders is handled so unfairly for certain buildings and the opposite for others.

    He lives 5min from our building and an hour from his. He's not running CPU he's helping out when volume is high

    Was told by manager, they can start a driver out of whatever center they want to. Really?

    Driver can follow his/her route

    It's not a route. When CPU volume is heavy in his center they let him use our equipment because he lives 5min from our building but an hour from his. He's a relief driver, with a pkg route. I don't think when our relief drivers are in pkg, another relief driver from a different center should be allowed to start out of our building

    Are you a relief driver, being denied a work opportunity ?

    Not me. Two of our relief drivers are. They're new to feeder and want the work but are afraid of getting black balled

    It sounds like, according to you this driver from another center is only using equipment and is probably being coded as starting from his building. If he's doing your centers p/up volume there may be a case for your feeder relief guys who are driving package.

    No guts.... No Glory.


    If they don't do something about this now, UPS will forever consider them punks.

    They need to talk with your Local Union.

    I understand it's convenient for him to start out of our building but doesn't seem right. I know there are times he'll also fill out his trailer with some of our CPU volume if he has room. The volume is then taken to a hub
