So we have a seasonal driver who has been driving almost everyday since thanksgiving. I was under the impression that seasonal drivers were only allowed to drive through certain dates. I started looking through the Central supplement and it indicates that the days worked from Nov. 1st through the second full week in January do not count towards seniority. But, days worked outside of that time would count toward the 30 in 90. I mentioned to the driver that they should look into this. That person said they contacted our local steward who said "since the driver signed a seasonal bid no days will ever count towards seniority." I may be wrong but from what I am reading in the suppliment (which I will quote below) I think that the seasonal driver can get seniority because they are driving outside the specified seasonal dates. Does anyone have any definitive information on this? ARTICLE 1-PROBATIONARY EMPLOYEES-SEASONAL EMPLOYEES Section 1 (b) Seasonal Employees: Time worked from November 1st through the Friday of the second full week of January of the following year December 31st of each year shall not accrue toward seniority. This period may be extended upon approval from the Local Union. Any employee who is retained after December 31st, the Friday of the second full week of January, or recalled within sixty (60) days after the Friday of the second full week of January, December 31st, must work thirty (30) in a ninety (90) consecutive day period commencing with the first (1st) day worked after the Friday of the second full week of January, December 31st, and his/her seniority shall revert back to the first (1st) day of his/her ninety (90) day qualification period. However, those employees hired prior to November 1st who are retained or recalled within sixty (60) days after the Friday of the second full week in January December 31st will retain credit for the number of days worked prior to November 1st. These days retained will count toward the thirty (30) days worked in a ninety (90) consecutive day period commencing with the first (1st) day worked after the Friday of the second full week in January December 31st and they shall be rehired on a six-for-one basis, as outlined elsewhere in this Agreement, and shall be placed on the seniority list with credit back to the first (1st) day worked after the Friday of the second full week of January. December 31st. An employee filling a permanent new job or job vacancy shall gain seniority under the thirty (30) working days in ninety (90) calendar days seniority provision. This provision will not affect the Company’s obligation to bid permanent full-time job vacancies pursuant to Article 3, Section 8 of the Central Region Supplement or any applicable language in any Local Rider or Addendum. Seasonal and probationary employees will not receive any of the benefits of this Agreement other than wages spelled out in this Agreement. Any employee put to work during the seasonal period shall be paid the appropriate seasonal rate of pay.
