    I started last May working in the pre-load. I just barley switched to local sort (at the same hub) and i was told i lost all my seniority.. is that true?

    Sounds odd. The only way you lose seniority is if you go into management, transfer to a different hub involuntarily.

    Talk to a shop stewart about it, sounds like they are trying to upset you and get you to quit, whatever it is. Did you do poorly in preload?

    That's not usually the case but there could be something in your local supplement. What area are you from? (PM me if you don't want to post it here.)

    That would be a load of crap they're feeding you. And that's all I have to say about that.

    I worked my ass off loading the package cars. My shelf's were always in perfect order, never stacked boxes out. my sup said the guy running the whole local sort is just covering for someone and hes a dick

    as long as you are still a union employee then you retain your seniority. unless you transferred.

    Unless there is something in your supplement then its a load of crap. I've watched several preloaders switch to the local sort with no loss of seniority. That's like saying you lose your seniority because you bid a different spot on the sort.
