    "Not taking the job seriously." Right, just like how management takes peak seriously.

    This is vague, obscure and subjective.
    Is there a metric for this?

    Were there two supes observing the alleged methods violation?

    The question that should be asked why is the company hiring off the street RPCD? Language in new contract says no off the street RPCD unless they can’t fill position from within.

    What skills do you have? Do you have a college degree? If the answer is No to both of these questions then take the part time job.

    I can't imagine being that much of a F-up to be disqualified this time of year. After peak -yes - but now? Is there another side of this story we need to hear?

    In a RTW state the Union has to represent you even if you are not a dues paying Union member.

    They only want you looking at your DIAD while your driving. Otherwise it's too unsafe...

    Article 22 Section 4 (b)

    "In the event the Company utilizes this classifcation, the following shall ap- ply only to those buildings that include Saturday or Sunday delivery."

    That means they can have 22.4's even if they don't have weekend ground delivery. The language you quoted only applies if a center has 22.4's and weekend delivery.

    It also means they can hire RPCD's off the street if the center does weekend ground delivery, but doesn't have 22.4's yet.

    You can believe it. I've seen the vast majority (maybe even all) of our quailfying drivers get DQ for stepping into wet cement, hitting cones, not having a sense of direction, not taking the job seriously. It is November, these are good employees. WTF.

    Damn--you have some real jerks for sups. A good UPS driver will have a knack for having a sense of direction. I still amaze people by usually knowing no matter where I am which direction north is. On the other hand my wife normally don't know which way is up.

    Because they can...

    The language does not say that.

    No contractual violation, at least in the Central.

    Past experience, maybe?

    You want this job it isn't just given away. Sure it was a few years back during the worst peak ever. The rest of us? We earned it.

    You want this career? The line starts right over there
