    Hey guys I had just a quick question. I'm trying to do the 6 to 1 to get a FT driver position. I have been with the company for 14 years. 3 years pt union and 11 years as a PT sup which I currently am. When I become a FT driver will my pay be any different from new contract since I've been here for so long? Just curious I'd it made a difference...

    You will start as a brand new off the street hire.

    No your years of service wouldn't mean anything even if you were Union the whole time. The only thing that would go towards is how many vacations you get but since your management I don't know if you have any years of service somebody else might know that answer. You will be in the 4 year progression at the pay rate whatever is in the contract book.

    If you had stayed Union and your PT hourly rate was higher then starting package car rate, you would keep the higher rate.

    Let it be known that you want to go to FT driver so as to "expand my knowledge base, flexibility and value in preparation for FT management".

    That will get the attention of your managers and it might just get you in as the 6 to 1 a little quicker.

    Once in FT pkg car stay there.......don't go anywhere else.

    No, I do not want to go FT management...but I was curious if my 14 years in the company would benefit me in any way of the pay rate, but I guess it doesn't...maybe just my vacations will transfer? Oh well....sucks

    I didn't say you did.

    I thought you wanted into FT driver and out of that hell hole known as PT supe.

    I was just making a suggestion. Sorry if I confused you.
     
  10. Nothing will transfer. You are essentially a new hire.

    I believe you keep your company seniority.

    Your pay should not drop.

    No you lose it , because you are off the street hire

    You should not lose any vacation weeks. Meaning that if you have 4 weeks now, you will have 4 when you go driving.

    Yes I do have 4 weeks of vacation now, so I will retain those?

    Yes, you will retain them but future weeks will be based on the contract as a driver.

    If he had stayed Union he could be making 6 figures by now.
