    is it possible to be a 22.4 combo driver and always have the option to work preload and then do air or a split afterwards? In addition, would it be possible for a 22.4 to be called in at 2 PM to do a pick up string and then do an air relay and finish the day off working local sort? That to me describes a 22.4 combo driver instead of a new name to cover driver.

    I am asking this because HR, union reps, and the on car supervisors don’t really know the answer. Do any of you have insight on this? Thank you

    How would we know if the ones who are supposed to know don't know?
    All we can do speculate like everyone else.
    Do we look like the Great Karnack ?

    I am located near you in SoCal. If so combo driver is a dumb name for this glorified weekend delivery cover driver role

    Do you know what local number you are? If you're in the southwest package rider then for sure your dream will not come true.

    Then you will be a cover driver. There will be no working preload/twilight or running only pick UPS or EAMs.

    Sorry but in our area a 22.4 is just a higher paid Cover Driver that works T-S or W-S.

    Okay thank you for answering. here’s a big question then, if someone were to turn down the 22.4 and remain part time, would they still be able to bid on a RPCD before 22.4 drivers if they had higher seniority than them?

    Does a 22.4 make more $$ than a hubrat?

    If so don’t expect much hub time

    Yes the list would go off your hire date. Still I would recommend becoming a 22.4. Yes is less pay then a RPCD but its guaranteed 40 hours and FT pension. Plus you only have to qualify once.

    So I can skip 22.4 and still go regular RPCD as I work preload still? I ask this because I have another job and not ready to give it up yet but I would take RPCD when it becomes available in the future.

    Only if no other 22.4 driver wants to be a RPCD.

    In my building a PT can't out bid a FT except under very rare circumstances. And that rare circumstance has been tied up since last February in my building.
