    Finished working my 40th day before 70 working days. In my center that qualifies me for the union. My question is what happens now? I was going to speak to my sup but everyone has told me before not to let them know how many days you worked.

    Track down a steward and speak with him/her.

    I'd suggest work day 41, then 42, then 43..........

    If from what I read on here I understand that now you are qualified to call in sick 3 days a week, go on FMLA leave for 6 months, EC all packages on your route and become a feeder drive overnight.

    They usually have a marching band to commemorate the occasion.

    Sounds to me like you are in the union. Get the paperwork going asap. Talk to the steward today.

    They will throw you a party. Tell your center manager so he orders the balloons for Friday.

    Buy donuts for your center and breakfast for your preloader if he made your days easier to manage.

    Sorry, I guess I didn't really make it clear. To enter the union am I suppose to let someone from the union contact me or am i suppose to contact them?

    Where you are at, you should be enrolled automatically (you probably already signed a membership card when you were hired). If it would put your mind at ease, call the union hall and ask them if you need to sign anything.

    Do you need help finding out what Local union you're in and how to find the phone # & website?

    I'd be more concerned with whether or not I was a qualified driver than if I was in the union.
