    What up fellow teamsters? Thinking about what's best for my family and transferring is the option I'm in question about. I have 2 years left to go to make top scale pay. Should I "attempt" to transfer Asap and lose my minuscule building seniority. Or make top rate then transfer. I'm leaning towards waiting it out. What you guys think? Thanks

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    What would it matter if you're full scale or not?

    If you can transfer get to where you want to be ASAP.

    Well if I'm full scale, transfer, go to the bottom of the list, possibly getting laid off wouldn't hurt the wallet as bad making double what I am now.

    I think it's about time for a "Transfer FAQ" prominently stickied at the top of the forum.


    This question is getting more mileage than socks.

    An education transfer and the transfers that are permitted out west are two different animals and would require separate stickies.

    I agree man, this topic has been totally :censored2:'d out. Was hesitant to post cause the mere word "transfer" annoys everybody. But it's a legit question. Btw I am West Coast

    Yeah. It's been real bad the last few weeks. Oh well I another few weeks we can hear about all of the summer seasonals that are going to stay on driving.

    True, but will the opportunity to transfer be available when you reach top scale. More likely you will not be the highest seniority driver who has a transfer request in for that building. Your right on the monetary statement.
