    I apologize in advance for not using the search function thoroughly.
    I keep reading on this board that the probationary period for a new full time package car driver has gone from 30 working days to 60 but I can't seem to find relevant language in the master agreement. Being a CSer, the only relevant information is on the supplement which reads,


    Section 1​

    (a) Probationary employees: a new employee shall work
    under the provisions of this Agreement but shall be employed
    only on a thirty (30) working day trial basis, during which
    period he/she may be discharged without further recourse;
    provided however, that the Employer may not discharge or
    discipline for the purpose of evading this Agreement or discriminating
    against union members. After working thirty (30)
    days within a ninety (90) consecutive day period, the employee
    shall be placed on the regular seniority list, and his/her
    seniority date shall revert back to the first (1st) day of the thirty
    (30) day period in which the employee gained seniority.

    Somebody more knowledgeable please clarify on this. I appreciate your help.​

    This is not addressed in the NMA. Refer to your region's supplemental.

    30 working days. However, if you are disqualified the first go round you may be given a 2nd probationary period...hence, the 60 days. In my neck of the woods, it is very rare to qualify after the 1st 30 day period.

    No, I just think it's neat to get anything translated for free & fast on the internet. It's capabilities still amaze me and I understand so little of it.
