    Yesterday another driver bumped me off my peak route . I asked my supervisor if you could bump during peak and he said yes, you just can’t bump a causal driver . This is my first peak , but I swore I heard you can’t bump people off assigned peak route . Now today he’s bumping me again , and I said to him is this what you plan on doing the rest of peak , and he said yes . I want to know if what he’s doing is within the lines ?

    govols019 You smell that?

    It's not "your" route, snowflake.

    If you're upset by this then you have a long career ahead of you at UPS.

    Seniority doesn't take a break during peak.

    If the supervisor doesn’t have a reason to keep you on your “peak route,” (i.e. you only know a specific delivery area) then yea you can be bumped. Cover is cover as far as I’m concerned. No bumping here but I do respect the seniority if everything is else equal. Seniority wins.

    You never ever ask mgmt if what someone is doing is OK. You ask Stewart. Mgmt is not your friend. If they’re attempting to allow this, they obv want you to be bumped because maybe it benefits them.

    You have to learn how to make underhanded-backroom deal with management. After that, don't talk.

    I’ve been on six different routes this peak.

    Suck it up and do your job.

    There's easy days, there's hard days; ride the wave, finish the route as best you can, get home. Never have expectations other than that. Never walk in thinking "man I hope I'm light today," setting yourself up for a letdown.

    @Indecisi0n prefers the overhand method but whatever works.
