    I want to file a grievance for seniority violation, the past week several less seniority drivers have been asked to deliver air and or ground after working pre-load. In most of them did work when asked however, I was skipped from list for that opportunity to driver any of the extra given. Although I had already informed several supervisors of my availability weeks ago. Being a minority female in a predominant area where mostly 90 % of the drivers are white male drivers and a couple of them are females. I have been unfortunate to fall in the same thing as always being told by supervisor that: "well I have to train you in the area, but cannot till next week" or "do you know this area". Those subtle suggestions that I am not ready or just feeling I am not worthy of the position. I just need some suggestions of how to write this grievance even though I know I might get a crappy route afterwards. Although, I have spoken to my union steward I am just told to file a grievance. This my 2nd HUB to work in and every union steward represents different. Keep in mind I have an ill child that required me to turn down driving for awhile during and after peak, but I have since then informed them my availability and informed them about my intermittent leave.

    Any advice is greatly appreciated.

    Do you have knowledge of the area(s) that you would be asked to deliver?
     
  3. Just file and demand to be laid for the money you lost out on.

    @UpstateNYUPSer i have the area knowledge as those that drove that particular day. I guess i was seeking more guidance on what to say in my grievance that will not require a story. Minimal writing.

    I would think it would quite relevant for an air driver to know the area(s) that he/she would be delivering that day.

    Seniority rules all. They have enough supervisors to give ojs rides to the "slackers" they should have enough to go out and train a rookie doing air for a cpls hours.

    Yes it is a bad business decision if it was my business but so is Orion
