    hi I was effectively hired 9/12 I am doing mixtures of scanning boxes and bagging. I like it so far, a lot. Will UPS let me go full time as a package handler or will I have to get certified for a different position if I want to obtain a full time status?

    Thanks much

    FT positions are for certain positions, and is obtained by seniority, not what you know.

    I believe he meant to say permanent position.

    By seniority, I mean the amount of seniority you have, where highest seniority that wants job, gets it.

    Like I said previously I was effectively hired September 12th and today I find out my dad notifies me that we might relocate to Fort Lauderdale, FL. How should I should go about this in my position? Relocate after my union initiation or does it not matter?
