    Exactly as the title says but i have been driving consistently 2 to 3 days a week. My facility has no vacations for the next 2 weeks. I have not been offered inside work due to being a casual.

    The casual job is just another union giveback and an additional company scam

    It's a way for UPS to get cheap labor and then dangle the carrot in front of their face with an opportunity to maybe get permanent employment that sounds real fair

    If they are so vital, why are they not FT package car drivers?

    Not enough volume on a daily basis to justify it.

    Casuals earn pension contributions and receive healthcare benefits if they work the required number of days. When I was a casual it was 36 day in a quarter to get benefits for the following quarter.
