    I am a permanent full time driver. I qualified in July. In the last 9 weeks I have only worked 3 days. Is this normal? I'm seeing ppl hired after me working and seasonal ppl working. What can I or what should I do?
     
  2. File a grievance and get paid!

    Uh, maybe go in to work and ask for your 8hour guarantee and stop agreeing to go home everyday? Seriously??

    Can you file after the fact if you don't ask/demand your guarantee?
     
  5. You have one week,from the date of the violation. Now If you volunteer to go home...thats another thing.

    I was told to call in every day, which I do. They tell me they don't have anything for me.
     
  7. Get In touch with your steward. He can request the records of who worked,with less time than you.

    do it now!

    If you qualified and made book...you
    don't call in..you show up in uniform ready to work everyday. You need to talk to your center manager and steward asap.

    And yes I am an off the street hire. I drove seasonally the last 2 years before accepting a full time permanent position in April. Just trying to figure out what is going on so I can attempt to provide for my family or look for another job

    Then calll your steward right NOW...and explain the situation to him. You are entitled to an 8 hour guarantee everyday....you shouldn't have to phone your center manager to see if they need you.
