    My center (Which is Air P/Us only) has had 5-10 routes open since I started two years ago is there any way to force a bid on these routes? They just assign cover drivers to these routes on a daily basis, and I would love to snatch one up. Thanks for the help, and yes I used the search function before posting.

    Where are you located? The language covering package area bids should be in your supplement. In the Atlantic Area once a route has been in for 30 days straight it has to go up for bid, might be different where you are.

    If they have less seniority, talk to your union steward. I've heard you can force less senior members off their route this way.
