We are currently having issues with routes being eliminated on certain days dues to volume loss, as are ,many other centers. In the past, those drivers whose routes were temp eliminated did floating routes, vacation coverage, etc. Now, after a meeting with UPS big wigs, they are telling us that those displaced drivers can bump ANYONE with lower seniority than them, and that it is THEIR choice. Meaning management cannot place them anywhere. And, to top it off, the driver that they "bump", cannot bump a lower seniority person if they have a route, and that management can place them where they want. This is the Michigan district. Anyone heard of this?
