    can a bid route driver bump a non bid route driver. My understanding is once you bid a route that’s your route everyday and you can no longer jump around like a cover or non bid driver. Is that true and if so what are the exceptions to that rule

    A route driver cannot bump another driver if he already has a route.

    That’s what I thought but came here to double check. Do you know if there are exceptions to the rule? I was told if they were going to have a half day (like on a junk/bulk route) then a route driver could bump

    No you bid a route you run it until you unbid it or bumped off of it

    Call your BA this is an easy fix

    There are no exceptions to the rule . It's just bad management and driver adequate . Speak up in shop if nothing changes go to your BA

    Well I guess they can technically bump a non bid route driver if their route is cut out completely. Otherwise, no.

    What region are you under? Do you have a local rider?

    Again knowing what area and if you have a local rider would help. Your contract may have language about this.

    If the driver has a route and is bumping someone to get a half day, no I would say he can't do that. Only reason I could see him bumping is if the half day route is 50% of his work.
     
  20. In my local you can only bump if you also grind
