22 year old Feeder driver? Calling BS on that one.
I wish I could too, he got his CDL at 21. His dad is a feeder.
87 months on Average in MN
Word is local 63 in Ontario CA need 300 feeder drivers and the PT ranks are turning it down. So they are negotiating extending it to other locals as well.
Sheeeet. I'll keep my ear to the ground
You do that...
Full time since day 1, no PT workers in automotive or PE.
Lol.. might be quicker to convince Ryder or a company like that to let you work on their equipment for a few years to get some experience then apply to be a mechanic.
Our progression is 2 years, we now start mechanics at like 31 or so and top out a little over driver rate. However, we get a lot less overtime than the drivers get.
Yet our union lets outsiders waltz in and bump fellow Teamsters? I'm sure generating initiation fees have nothing to do with it.
Outside hires bumping part timers. Shouldn't happen.
Do you remember when the ratio was 3 to 1 ?
Should be 100% to zero.
It could be.... but, people don't vote.
Are you dumb? Me myself I'd go ask hr what year they are calling for the next spot. But I'm not dumb.
Why not? If PT doesn't want it who cares. Someone needs to fill position
Same at our Hub, none of the PTers want to go feeder.
Hello anyway do you work in a Bulding- all by yourself? If you've been there two years and you have not had the guts or the smarts to ask somebody in your building how long it takes. Maybe you should just still be a loader UPS needs people like to think on the move apparently you can't think and you have 60 70 drivers coming in at the end of the night you can ask any of them
Started in Redmond, outside of Seattle in 1992, was going to take 8 years. Left, moved to Spokane, became accountant, got laid off, came back as peak driver, told to come into warehouse as loader for 6 months. Did so in April 2019, went to Portland Integrad in August. Bid for Full time (off of 22.4 Tue-Sat) after 2 months. Now I'm begging for time off to actually use my benefits. Working about 50 hrs/wk and loving it.
We had people waiting around 10 years up to about 2 years ago. Now the wait is 6 months.
