    How does full time probation work if your 30 days is broke by peak season. What date does the probation stop and start back

    I've seen 2 drivers qualify during peak 2 years in a row now. Once you start your 30, you just keep going

    And they should, if you can make it through peak you can make it any other time if the year.

    I would think that it resumes where it left off.

    Only if he's classified as permanent and the management team allows it.

      After thirty (30) days of work within a sixty (60) consecutive day period, not to include the orientation period which shall not last more than fifteen (15) working days, a new employee will acquire seniority and his seniority dates shall be the original date if his employment, provided, however, that the time worked in the free period shall not count towards the acquisition of seniority.

    It's not necessary to even get your 30 days if your manager wants/needs you now. Looks like a few guys in my center are about to get in without getting their days in (myself included)

    Qualification is up to 30 days.

    its after 30 days, as seen in the post above my last one. unless by qualification you mean something else besides "making book" or obtaining seniority

    Your posts contradict one another.

    no, you are missing the point. the contract states after 30 days you make seniority. I stated that a manager can make your book to obtain seniority in less than those 30 days if he so wishes.. the 30 is not mandatory but is mostly a way to be able to jerk you around or get rid of you if they want. but if you do make the 30 then you are in the union at that point
