    Ours is done by election each year. Person gets nominated and seconded by another member. Then there is an election

    You first need to supply the work area with tacos, then check back for step 2.

    No where on the bid sheet did it say anything about full time or anything like that we have guys been working preload 8 plus years that would have signed it if it said full time can they do this ?

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    This is why you sign each and every bid sheet for which you qualify.

    Your BA and supervisor are right---there is nothing can be done after the fact.

    Ask one of the stewards in your building,and if you can't wait call your local union office.

    MC4YOU2 Yep, not wearing brown anymore

    If it "turned into" a full time job, it might be possible to grieve it based on the fact it's now a new job. If it's a full time job because it's a combo job, like 1/2 clerk and 1/2 feeder, it might qualify for 22.3
    I will add tho, that once the cats outta the bag, it's not easy to get it back. The union would have to prove that UPS knew it was going to be full time all along and hid the fact, or that this is really no longer fits the bid description. My 2¢.
     
  17. Depends on the language in your supplement.
     
  18. Becoming a steward depends on your local union bylaws.

    In a meeting (for local union slates of officers) this requires a member in good standing to be present and to formally nominate the candidate.

    Typically, this is done in writing for a steward election.

    Every local handles steward elections differently. We have elections every three years here after nominations. Nearly all locals allow the BA and/or Principal Officer to appoint stewards/alternate stewards.
