is it possible to change to a shifter if you are a feeder driver now
Shifter has always been a trained part-time preloader where I’m at. So....no?
Yes. No. Maybe. It depends. Ask Stewart. No one here knows which center you work in and how things are done there. It's different everywhere.
I get that it is different across the country , but I want to know if it is even possible anywhere . If I cared just about my local then I would have said that
Where I am at we have FT shifters
HERE, if your job gets changed, modified, cut, whatever, we can bump wherever our seniority allows.
OR, if a shifter job opens, or changes in any way, you can bid on it.
So the answer HERE is "yes".
And it's steward not Stewart
Do you ever have guys switch to shifter from feeder
Yessir. One of our senior guys bid into a shifting job to get off the road for his last year. I'm thinking about doing the same thing.
But your shifters are actual feeder drivers???
Our shifters are just feeder bids.
HERE, some are, some aren't. No license required to shift here, they don't leave the properrty.
Yes and no. We have feeder jobs that shift as part of their schedule and we also have fulltime 22.2 shifters who only shift and never go on the road.. The job I was talking about is a 22.2 shifting job.
Two of ours are P/T(am)and one is F/T(22.3)but only shifts for 6 hours then washes cars for 2. So we could change to the pm if it came up for bid.
Here shifters are feeder drivers. Shifting jobs are posted with feeder runs.
Here, yes. Shifting is still a feeder job
Shifter seats smell
You may want to stop sniffing the seats of every piece of equipment you get in, butt to each their own.
Well, since you wanted to know how it's done all over the place.
We have a guy named "Stewart." He is very knowledgeable in UPS union issues. He is not the official "steward." He is just a helpful guy who likes to talk with newbies.
COOL STORY BRO
