    How does a person get hire off the street as a driver? How is this fair for the preloaders who have been busting there self so early in the morning hours and someone moves in front of them off the street? How often does this happen? Please, someone who knows explain this? What do we pay union dues for this to happen to us?:angry:

    Your right its not fair and it use to happen all the time...not so much any more. There is talk about making it a 8 or 9 to 1 ratio in the comming up contract..

    So you have been so lucky to be able to sit in on the negotiations. Or is this rumor you heard.

    If somebody gets hired off the street as a full time driver this time of the year, they will be gone December 26.

    Generally they save it for a management crone. No offense, but the last three haven't gone back. gotta love it !

    It's not a rumor, it was a contract demand. Before someone goes off about it being something that shouldn't be discussed here, its available online along with the other changes proposed at demands meetings held a few months back.

    Have these preloaders (or other workers) been signing the bid list to drive in the first place? Can't be upset if you don't follow the right measures in the first place.

    Please tell me that you're kidding. People deserve to be hired ahead of you.

    I would like to see UPS get peak hire drivers from within first, hiring off-the-street when the need for drivers exceeds the number of those interested. Even if they are going to be sent back inside at the end of peak, I believe the benefits to all woukd be much. Those returning to the preload after peak will have a better appreciation of how their loads effect the driver's day, and may take more care in how they load (I know I did after going out as a helper). And when they need summertime hires they should have an ample supply of previously-trained drivers, which should lessen UPS' costs.

    This sounds like a good idea, but if they did, then they would have to hire temporary loaders for peak, which would be a huge cluster****.

    I suspect the majority of preloaders/hub workers do not want to be drivers, so the need for replacing them may not be all that great. In addition, with how much more simplified the operation is [SUPPOSED] to be due to the PAS replacing what hub workers do go out for driving shouldn't be that great an ordeal.
