    He may be paying initiation fees and thinks they are dues.
     
  4. It's possible but they should be taking them out until you are in the union.

    What should I do? Should I take the warehouse job and try requalifying? I'd certainly have to find another job. I really wanted this, but it seems like its not in the cards for me. The way they DQ'd me, I dont see them giving me an oppurtunity to drive.

    True but even you would have to admit that "not taking the job seriously" is a new one.

    I would take warehouse job and grieve it if you are indeed in the union worst case scenario you can bid on something later

    BS.

    Until he gains seniority, he has no rights other than the contractual rate of pay.

    File based on what? As was said above, they can DQ you for just about anything, although "not taking the job seriously" is one I hadn't heard before.

    My point exactly someone didn't want him to qualify as an outside hire they must have someone inside that they know is what it sounds like to me

    If you take the PT job you will no longer be able to be hired as a off the street hire. You'll have to wait till you're seniority affords you the right to qualify again. You may want to ask around and see what the wait time is to be a RPCD in that building. Because in some areas it can be anywhere from 6months to 11years.

    You say that like I never admit to things lol.

    Yes it's a new one but he may have been given better reasons but that was the one the OP latched on to.

    If they are paying fees but not dues, they are at-will employees, correct?

    Can't have 22.4s if they hired off the street to be a RPCD.
     
  19. I'm pretty sure all off the street drivers will be 22.4 from now on

    I agree. What I meant was the new contract says if the building has 22.4s they can not hire off the street RPCDs.

    So if he was hired off the street as a RPCD then that must mean his building doesn't have T-S yet. ;)
