    When you went from PT to FT you changed your classification. We have laid off drivers right now doing what I think you are saying. I believe you should be paid starting driver rate and not top PT air driver rate for air driving. For loading you will receive FT starting inside rate.

    When drivers are laid of in my region they get full rate for 7 days that they could be scheduled to work (i.e. Working days). After that thy revert to the inside rate they would be at if they had never gone FT.

    You're not an air driver. If you deliver a package you rate goes back to top rate for 7 more days.

    Also, PT air drivers have seniority over you now that you're full time. You can bump inside by you can't touch pt air driver work.

    Good point. The contract does say whichever is higher.

    If you are full time and you del a package why should you be paid any less than your full time rate!?!?!?!!!

    So you were not perm full time?

    Just driving regularly (we call that a tcd)?

    In that case, you should go back to your old spots and should be topped out.
