    Can they take a bid driver off his route to train a casual during peak that ain't going to make book?
    What about xmas tips?

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    Yes.

    Hopefully the seasonal will do the right thing when it comes to the tips.

    Lol I doubt that
    30 days and off?
     
  4. My route is a training route & a new outside FT permanent is starting on Tuesday. I'll miss my customers during peak, but I like doing coverage too, as long as it's as gravy as gravy can be for peak.

    It's a freeze period they can't make book
     
  6. A regular route= no. A training route = yes.

    Your tips will most likely be there when you get back on your route, for businesses at least.

    Yup they can pretty much do what ever they want as the route is a training route. It doesn't matter whether or not the person is going to be on it 1 day or until they make book or until they get laid off..

    They can stay on it until they qualify, whatever the criteria for that to happen in your area.

    The tip thing can go both ways. I've seen the helper/temp driver keep the tips. Not much you can do about it other than have a "talk" with him ----off the property.

    Contract says 30 days but I thought it only applied for those trying to make book not a casual

    Casuals should do splits

    If they work one day past free period, they made book, so essentially, they are.

    You can better navigate them, and a new person needs more structure than do you.

    In a perfect world, I'd agree with you.

    Are u sure I believe none of theses freeze period days count towards seniority in a freeze

    May vary by supplement.

    That is why you do the split.
