    i just became a full time driver in September and now I'm seeing a lot of seasonal driver when they have me work the preload. Is that normal?

    It's not un-normal.

    If they are seasonal/off the the street, and there's not enough work for them, then yes.

    Trying to get the new guys up to speed. No it is not right and you may have a legitimate grievance. But since you have only been here since Sept. may want to stay off the radar.

    I was a part time employee for 2 year and if you may can you tell me why I would want to stay under the radar.

    You should be paid your gaurantee(8hours) I would think if they are having other drivers with less or no seniority drive before you. This should be looked into with your business agent soon.

    I take it that your building doesn't have a single steward or your local doesn't have a BA either. If I was having issues that your where having I be asking one of them not people on BC from different area of the country where things might work differently.

    However you said you became a FT driver in Sept so you most likely haven't made your 30 days yet. That could play a roll in your current situation or maybe you got DQ and just have overlooked that point and your working where you are suppose to.

    It doesn't matter if your full time or a TCD. Someone with less seniority than you shouldn't be driving. Even if they are training you have a right to drive before them. I would show up to drive and if they didn't have anything for me I would go home and file an 8 hour grievance.

    To all the responses telling him to keep quiet. What would you do if you had bills to pay and were being bumped? Keep quiet? Our contact is only as strong as the members with the backbone to enforce it. If they keep getting away with breaking the contract why should we even have one? If you have the brass to stand up for yourself then go tell your oc that you want to drive.
