    Four straight hired off the street

    Could I grieve this?

    Where I am they hire Feeder drivers off the street, we use classification seniority for job picks. (Yes that argument can be for another time.) If they hire different than the ratio the feeder seniority list will have spaces for the drivers out of package or transfers to dovetail into.

    You could ask a steward to look into.

    Filing a grievance is your contractual right. They might not like it but it will make them respect you. Manning up goes a long way. Especially if members get a full time job because you stepped up.

    I'd say you call your steward/BA and get to the bottom of this.

    Move you into one of the full time job that you wanted. You can ask for anything you want in the restitution part of the grievance. Doesn't mean you will get it.
    Once when I was part time we had a part time box line sup come up to the sort aisle to scream and berate everyone in the sort aisle he pretty much made a butt out of himself. I filed a grievance demanding a public apology from that pt sup. The full time sup at the grievance hearing ripped the pt sup a new one in front of me, and the union steward at the time so bad the part time sup stomped red faced out of the meeting. The full time sup looked over at me and asked " Is that good enough for you " I replied "yes" grievance was withdrawn . Ask for what you want for.

    standtall You can't hurt my feelings, I left them at home.

    Your not burning bridges, your standing up for yourself. If you were the 7th to sign with 4 jobs available, you might not get the job but if you file and your senior guys (or girls) move up, your that much closer next time. Someone needs to file, be the man.

    They can hire 4 off the street if they want to.
    Now don't they need to hire 24 insiders?

    Let all 4 gain seniority before filing,then when they do file, how can you not win that one?

    oldngray nowhere special

    Maybe UPS only expects 1 of the 4 to qualify?

    That shouldn't matter. They are still screwing 3 members out of the opportunity to fail. Lol.

    root Calm down, i'll handle it

    Lol! Reminds me of a former steward whose favorite saying was " they can do that", lol, but doesn't that mean the next ones in line are ALL from the inside? ?!!

    Must not have much faith in the insiders in line.
