    You could ask HR about an educational transfer but it's probably a long shot.

    At 2 years of seniority I cant imagine you'd be far from the bottom anyway

    Which sort do you work on? Upstate is right about just starting over. Get a good recommendation and try for a rehire spot. And if UPS in Laramie finds out about a previous on the job injury, forget it.

    You can do an educational transfer if you enroll at a local college. But you lose all building seniority. You only retain your vacation and pension
     
  16. You would keep your seniority as far as wages and how many vacations you would accrue. It would also accrue pension.

    I don't know how far those two locations are from each other (too lazy right now to simply enter them both in Google Maps) but some HR departments require that the transfer is more than 50 miles. That is not in the contract language (in the Southern anyway) but HR has been enforcing it anyway. All I had to do to transfer was show an acceptance letter from the college I was going to be attending and write a letter stating that I wanted an education transfer to the such and such building. My full-time sup in the hub adamantly denied that I could transfer but failed miserably.

    It is at least a 500 mile move.

    The only way to transfer here is if you are going to school or if your run gets moved to another hub. Other then that you are SOL.

    Looks like Local 90 is central Iowa. Would only make sense if you're moving to a high growth/driver demand area.
