Signups for Saturday Air Drivers went up this past week, and I put my name on the list. I don't really expect to get a call, but you never know. Anyway, I had some questions that I didn't see addressed in any of the other topics regarding Saturday Air. 1) Shift concerns: I wasn't aware at the time that I put my name down that Midnight people can't do Saturday Air (particularly if they work the Midnight shift on Fridays). I spoke with my supervisors and they said I can't be granted special permission to miss or switch my shift on Fridays. The only way, according to them, is to completely change my regular shift altogether. As far as I am aware (and I may be wrong), changing shifts is ordinarily a matter of seniority. I'm not particularly confident that I have the seniority necessary to change to a different shift, so my question is this: Is there an exception to the normal rules if I get offered a Saturday Air position that makes it possible to change shifts even though I wouldn't be able to otherwise? 2) I'm worried about qualifications and their effect, if any, on attempts to go FT in the future. I've read around here, and heard throughout my hub, that if you fail to qualify you have to wait a year before trying again...for FT. Does this apply to Saturday Air? If yes, does that one year apply only to trying to get a Saturday Air position again, or does it also apply to trying to go FT? I'd hate to fail to qualify as a Saturday Air driver and simultaneously botch my chances of going FT. And how about the other way around? If I fail to qualify for a FT driving gig, does that necessarily disqualify me for Saturday Air as well? 3) Hypothetically, if I was a little stressed out at the time that I got my DOT physical done, and as a result my BP was just barely over the limit, say 141/90 or something similar, what are the implications? Does UPS make you wait, for any length of time, before doing the DOT again? Does the DOT make you wait before taking the physical again? I would appreciate any input on these matters. Thanks in advance!
