My driver and his on road supervisor confirmed that 396 is no longer promoting PTers to RPCD. Everyone now has to become a 22.4 and promote to RPCD from there.
Lol. I’ll believe 22.4 to RPCD when I see it. Why would they ever allow that? I don’t care what the contract says. They will violate it. The whole point of 22.4 was to completely reset the pay structure.Any where there is a long wait for full time, the company is going to drag their feet on promoting 22.4 to RPCD.
Too bad the contract doesn't support this and your local doesn't get to make this decision.
Are you really going to be the guy who tries to defend this position?
Anyone with common sense can see this is going to be the end result. Can the company definitively say they will never hire a part-timer directly to RPCD, no, but as long as full-timers bid before part-timers it will be a rare occasion when this happens.
Actually Mr. Rick Ross I am going to defend my position.
Let me tell you why....
396 and 542 share the same Supplmental/Rider. We have language in our contracts that do not allow what he says is going to happen.
Unless his local wants to be hit with a ton of ULPs I doubt he is being told the truth.
I figured there would be supplements with much better language then mine. In my building there won't be another direct PT to RPCD for the life of this contract.
How does your language differ?
Has anyone realized he's going off of what 1 driver and a ORS told him.
