    Hi, I'm originally from Arkansas and am thinking of transferring there (Hot Springs). I've almost worked at ups for six months now in San Diego, which I think is the required time to be able to transfer.

    I was wondering if anyone here works in any of the hubs in Arkansas? If so, what is the current part-time to full-time, package handler to driver wait time in your respective facility? Is the union strong there?

    Thanks in advance

    Why in the world would anyone want to go from San Diego to Arkansas? :)

    If the OP gets his transfer there will be an opening.

    Cost of living would be a big reason. Easier and slower pace of life would be another reason along with the fishing and hunting.

    True that well if I did decide to make that move it would be a year from now, but I was curious if it is a slow moving bldg or fast as far as senority goes.

    I can't speak for the nearest hub to Hot Springs. I believe it would be Little Rock. Fort Smith also has a hub.

    Local 373 is in Fort Smith. We have a good BA.

    Per Article 22, Section 6:
    - You need to be employed at least one year.
    - National transfers are granted only for educational purposes.
    - Your seniority is entailed.

    Honestly, the easiest way to transfer... is to quit and get re-hired. You're merely losing 6 months company seniority, which isn't a big deal.

    6 months seniority would put you half way up the second page of the seniority list in my building.

    Dont know if it like that everywhere else but in my bldg they told us when we hired in if you quit under a year that you are not eligible for rehire.
