    Hello. I am a ups temp driver. I have been driving temp for a year now. I keep running in to the problem of my management working drivers with less seniority than I. People with less seniority have been working full weeks and i can get barley 20hrs a week. This past week i was sent home everyday with a total of 0 hrs. I have talk to management but they refuse to honor my seniority.. Does anyone know what Art. in the Supplemental agreement I can look to reference on this matter. (Atlantic Area)

    Articles 48 and 63. Read those carefully. But all assignments should be given in seniority order.

    Sounds like these temps are being trained in preparation for Peak.

    If your a temp they can do whatever they want. Once you start quoting union articles as a temp your going bye bye for good.
