    Not everywhere has PT cover drivers. We do where I am. I believe if this hybrid driver things passes. PT covers will be sent back and told if they want to drive they have to become 22.4 drivers. So they can make you load and drive when ever they want.

    That seems to be the consensus among drivers.I know it differs from center to center but in our center which is a mid level in the UPS universe we would be :censored2:ed after years of waiting as covers Strike!!!and deal with the temporary pain if this is true

    The way I look at it here is, they want to keep you guys as Cover Drivers for ever. It's almost the same thing just they slapped a fulltime label on it. No 9.5 language, no 8 hour requests. No protection at all. Unless by some miracle they write some iron clad language for that position. Wouldn't bet on it though.

  10. Oh but you'll be there 9.5 hrs to get 8 with the 1.5 hr lag between shifts.
    These replace 22.3s?
    I dont think so.
