    I turned in a letter of interest back in July to be moved to the unload. Since then I have worked in the unload a handful of times. They have hired people since then and put them in the unload whenever I was supposed to fill that available position.

    I've talked to my supervisor and he just blows it off.

    This is covered under article 63 section 6 of the Atlantic supplement.

    How would I write this grievance up?

    Is the unload a preferred/bid position?

    According to that section it is a preferred position, not a bid position

    I guess they prefer that you remain in your current position.

    This is the language you're looking for.


    ARTICLE 22

    Section 4.

    "Part-time employees with six (6) months or more seniority shall have the right to place their name on the list of employees waiting to be moved to a preferred job within their building. Such preferred jobs shall include, but not be limited to: Preload, Sorter, Clerical, Irregular Train, Designated Responder, Carwasher, Loader and Unloader."

    It's National language.... so it's an easy win, if you file a grievance.

    Maybe.... you didn't comprehend, the point of the thread.

    The member has options, when it comes to the contract language.

    I had moved on from that.

    Did you watch the debate?

    Is this the first grievance you have filed? How long you been at UPS?

    What position do they want you in?
