    Long time reader, First time poster.

    What happens, when UPS decides to not use the 6:1 ratio?

    Meaning, when the 7th job comes available; they give it to an inside hire.

    It's a win win for the teamsters.

    But what happens, when they try to use it on the 8th hire?

    Should it be allowed?

    Yes, it would be allowed, still with contractual limits

    They have to maintain a "minimum" of 6:1.

    They can hire everyone from inside and still fulfill their contractual obligation. It is in the contract to give PTers a better chance to go FT as opposed to UPS filling the jobs from the street.

    Their ratio could be 50:0. Better for the PTers.

    Never thought about it like that. We have a guy at our center, who is wanting to go Full time. But the Company is deciding to use the 8th hire, on an outsider.

    Unless I am missing something, 6 from the inside, #7 off the street.
    Then the next 6 from current workforce before abother off the street can be hired on.
    At least that is how I understand it.

    Guess this is they'd rather have an outsider. Than that guy.

    Sort of, but not really.

    They could do it that way, but UPS just has to fulfill the 6:1 during the life of the contract.

    It is easier to do 6, then 1, but they could do 2 from the outside as long as they plan on 12 from the inside by the end of the contract.

    And again, they do not have to hire anyone off the street to fulfill the contractual obligation. They can hire everyone from the inside.

    It is a minimum of 6:1

    So from what I read, they could actually hire like....

    1: Inside

    Order doesn't matter...

    We're a smaller center, so I don't think we'll be hitting the 12:2 Ratio for the 2013-2018 Contract.

    Correct. Order does not matter.
