    I have read the new contract for the small package department. I did not see where it mentioned the Cover Driver position. Anyone know why?

    Did you read the Master or your Supplemental contract? Cover Drivers are not in the Master.

    The cover driver position and the language that covers them is different in every supplement. Mind blowing to me, but it is.

    You read all about cover drivers, you just do not know what they are called in the contract.

    Cover Driver are being phased out. 22.4 are the new cheaper cover drivers. My building hasn’t put a bid for cover driver since god talked to Moses. The company would rather hire pt to ft so they could pay $18.75/ hr than 85% of top pay(southern supplement) to a cover driver. I was thinking about filing a grievance on this!

    What's a cover driver? We only have full time drivers in my local, some do not have a steady route.
  8. They are considered fulltime cover drivers if they don't have a steady route... At least in my hub
