    I have a question about the qualifying period when you win a bid for full-time package car driver. We have 2 centers in my building, I drove seasonal during peak of 2011 and they qualified me. Our rider indicates if you qualify as a cover driver you don't have to qualify again. But our center manager keeps harping on me about scratching 5 days. From my understanding if I was pre-qualified when I won the bid, I don't have to re-qualify. Is this correct?

    Is it really worth fighting? Since your future as a driver is in the companies hands, you may not make 30 days on-road if you battle the center manager's lie now. I suggest calling bluffs once you have made 30 days because they do discriminate.

    Are you sure about that ? Generally speaking.... When you drive as a seasonal, you don't "gain" anything except experience.

    Check it out. You might be confusing yourself with seasonal language, and cover driver language.

    They qualified you to drive,not for seniority. You will have to do it on a bid

    Thanks guys, I wasn't sure and my steward said I only have to qualify once. So I wanted to see what the general consensus was.
