I have been a part time pre-loader and now NEED to become a full time pre-loader. I recently learned there is a hub that has full time pre-load. I have been loading trucks over 20 years. I just found out from a shop steward that in order to move to the hub that offers the full time pre-load is with an educational transfer. I don't know for absolute sure if the only way to move from one building to another and transferring my seniority is because of a need to move to the other building because a school I'm interested in attending is closer by, but I hope that's not the one and only way I can pursue the hope of finally having a full time employment. I can't help but have a bad feeling it is. I've searched a lot of the other posted topics and the answers to questions such as the utter need to compose a cover letter to management explaining the uncompromising need to move take classes have been mentioned however they are not totally clear. If I actually have to be established in an educational situation that is nearby the hub I want to move to that offers the full time pre-load, then I think I'm sunk. Do I really have to enroll myself in a class in a place that's close to the hub just to work at the hub? The only one of the qualifications I read mentioned also was a minimum of one course however, without mention of the details such as full time course or part time course or the length of time you must spend at a nearby school. I guess obviously getting a good grade or grades in the class or classes so it looks a though I'm actually interested in an education and not more hours seems to also be the consensus. I could care less about school and would rather not waste money at the bursars office just for a visit, transcripts, school supplies, and more wasted time in a classroom all to get from a small building with only part time pre-load to a huge building with full time pre-load. Please tell me this isn't the only way to move from one building to another. Please tell me I don't have to lie and say I've decided to go to school and then actually go to a school as a smoke screen as the only way to go from part time to full time as well as transfer to another hub and lose my center seniority which really doesn't matter to me anyway. I dread the truth at this point but can't give up hoping there's an honest way to move there for full time hours.
