    hey guys I started last week and everything went fine. My day job has, of course, informed me that I have been assigned out of town until 12/13. Do you all have any suggestions for how to handle this? I want to come back, but I have only been there a week! Will I have to quit? Thanks for any advice.
     
  2. You will be missing most of the time they they really need you here
    I would just tell them what's going on and find out what happens

    More than likely, if you are a good worker, they'll keep you through Christmas, and dismiss you afterwards. That was some bad timing.

  5. What's the worst they are going to do, not call you back?
    You already are unavailable to work.

    You leave now you will most likely be put on the no rehire status. Doesn't matter what anybody tells you there.

    Doesn't sound like your day job pays very well if you are bottom feeding at UPS. But then what about future potential at UPS? $100 k jobs are plentiful....at UPS. Yours?

    No. Rpcd are going to disappear for lower wage 22.4. The only 100k jobs will be feeder, and we will see how long they last. 22.3 jobs are now throwaways here, too. 8 hours preloading with no two distinct jobs. The days of good union jobs and a strong union with UPS are long gone.

    Watch that be negotiated out 2023. Rpcds won't last now that the slippery slope of mediocre paying, weekend warrior 22.4s was tested

    There is a difference between posting an opinion on the future, and stating something as if it is a fact. Package car drivers are currently ALL protected. And no one from the union that I have heard has said anything about that changing in 2023.

    Cynicism for its own sake is not a virtue.

    Read again - the post I responded to.
    "100K + jobs are plentiful". was what I responded to. That by itself is silly, untrue and becoming less so each contract.
    Then take into consideration technology, a weak union and part-timers making wage minimums in throw away jobs with ample turnover, who don't vote.

    I wasn't speaking as fact, just going by what I see. You may take it a certain way if you want to.

    BTW The whole point of 22.4 was to make rpcd a lower paying position. Burn the 100k+ jobs. How is that not fact? Things that make you go hmmmm

    Around here, they are hiring many, many perhaps hundreds of feeder drivers. 50-60 hour feeder jobs

    Team jobs etc. So much so that street hires are a fact. Around here, employment opportunities are the

    best they've been for decades. Hmmmm.
