I'm a senior driver on a bid route in an extended building. Unfortunately our center has been going exponentially downhill for the last three years. Every Summer we have routes cut and mine is one of those that is eliminated this year it was cut about four months earlier then last year. The stops are still there, they're just sending guys out overdispatched using intimidation on newer drivers to get it done. I'm planning on leaving UPS later this Fall and would like to take time off to transition into bigger and better things. My question is this: When my bid route is cut for the last 90 days do I have the option of taking a layoff when it's convenient for me? Or do I have to drive whatever car the supervisor wants me to take out? I filed a grievance about unfairness with not being able to use my seniority to select routes that junior drivers are doing but it hasn't gone anywhere to my knowledge.
