Word of mouth I haven’t looked for the language. If you are a cover driver waiting on a full time spot and they hire off the street, you are bumped up to full time.
You don't sign any contract. It's a 2 year commitment if you stay with UPS but you can still quit the company.How long of a contract do you sign if you go to feeder school? I'm a current Package Car driver that's gonna put my name on the list next month, but my family and I are moving out of state in the next year or two.
My load just got pulled off the rail 2 days a week.I live on the mainline for the BNSF that runs between Chicago and Seattle. I also watch trains. I have seen a definite reduction in the number of UPS trailers I see on trains. It used to be fairly common to see 20-30+ on a train, now more than 10 is kind of rare.
5 years ago, we were screaming to get the loads off the rails....
In Central, it is a 3 year commitment. The non-productive week is unpaid, but if you honor the 3 year commitment, you get that week paid. I was paid the 40 hours for that week as if I worked it. The supe told me that if I did not make feeders during my production week OR if I did not stay in feeders for 3 years, I would have to pay that back.So if you dont commit the two years you have to pay it back?
