    You are perceptive. You are also screwed. P/T sups have no rights other than those provided by law.

    so the full timer keeps telling me to sort, and i've brought it up to him that I shouldn't be not to mention i have to run the sort aisle and the metro shoots are horrible in my area, a manager had all p/t sups sign an agreement form not to sort or do any work a hourly should do. Constantly being watched by union workers who directly tell me to stop... so I'm in between 2 walls

    We as a union can't make you stop. I would just tell someone on your sort aisle to file for you working. Encourage them to. That way you won't have to sort.

    I wouldn't worry about sorting much longer. Since you posted your pic and are bad-mouthing UPS, I'm sure they will find something else for you to do...j/k...lol

    If driving is your end goal, you should have stayed hourly. Better odds of going FT from the union side. You'd be making WELL OVER 30k as a driver

    Rights? Is that something I'm expected to deliver?

    i would be happy making 30k a year from a part time job. the only thing you can do is tell union workers to file and then manager will tell you
    to stop doing union work. which should also get your full time sup to stop making you sort.

    As a part-time sup, you are more likely to make under 30k/ year forever...

  16. You have the right to remain silent and do what your FT sup tells you to do.

    That's about it in your situation.

    If you are wanting an opportunity for advancement, no doubt management is the best route for you.
    Bear with it, stay positive and keep working hard.

    If any of the guys who work under you as your sorters had any type of backbone, they would have already filed multiple grievances.

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

    Made a lot of money because of a driver sup that didn't want to work.

    He'd call and say hey I did this today.
