    Does anybody know if this is possible? I have asked and asked and nobody seems to know. I am a freight city driver but I'd like to transfer to the package car division. If anybody knows if this is possible or how to do it, please let me know.
    Thanks!

    I doubt that this is possible since one is union and the other is not. Maybe this is something they can take up in the next contract.

    So you want to go from 20 stops to 200? Are you crazy?

    There are no provisions in our contract that would allow that.

    Perhaps they could transfer you into one of the 6/1 outside hire positions. But most likely you would have to quit and get rehired. Not worth it.

    got give up your current job and try to get hired as driver. not worthy of the chance imo.

    Amen to that. In fact, as a backup plan if I can't find a job right after graduation I asked HR at my hub about going to UPS Freight! They said I'd have to quit and get rehired completely. Need to get my class A CDL first.

    Whats so bad about Freight that you'd make the switch? Sure you guys probably don't make as much but damn..A/C Cabs and not getting in and out of a truck 200++ times a day?
