    Can a seniority PT, new TCD qualify during peak?

    It is my understanding that 30 days is 30 days when changing classifications. Only new hires cannot accrue seniority during peak season. I haven't read anywhere in the contract it says you cannot accrue your seniority when changing classifications during peak season

    Peak is a free season-----seniority cannot be gained during a free period.

    I'd like to know the article that says you can't qualify for a new classification during peak season. He isn't changing from part time to full time, it's not a new senority date.

    TCDs typically do qualify during peak and summer season.

    That's my thinking.

    So, we have a 50/50 consensus so far. Any others?

    If you are a reg temp here, peak does not count towards qualifying. Like everything else, it depends on your supplement.

    Senority part timer, TCD.

    You can qualify, but the bid must state Perm FT. We had two drivers go through qualifying during the free period last December. Talk about a welcome to UPS.

    I know what you mean. We just call them regular temporary drivers here. Reg temps. They're all seniority part timers.
