Driver helper bid

Discussion in 'UPS Discussions' started by jacobram, Oct 26, 2014.

  1. I am a loader with 2 and a half years seniority who turned in a bid sheet for driver helper on Oct 5th when there was no deadline posted for apps. When I asked HR why I did not receive a call as others did she said I probably turned mine in too late. There are now driver helper apps open for where I work. Can they hire off the streets before the hire me?

    They do whatever they want. It's up to you to make them do what they should by contract.

    They will hire from the inside first. Be patient. They can't put on driver helpers til after Nov. 1st.

    Til after Nov. 1st? I started driver helper last Monday. I'm the first helper in my building this year. I was told to keep it on the down low due to seniority issues. Local 396

    Good thinking. Keep it on the DL on an internet forum that can be read by anyone, anywhere in the world.

    If this is true, you're not only violating the contract, but hurting your fellow union brothers/sisters. This is a great way to burn bridges.

    bleedinbrown58 ahhh....the mouth breathers

    Read your supplement....if PTers with seniority are allowed to double as helpers over a seasonal hire....file a grievance.
  10. Western supplement has little wording on seasonal help that I can find. Can't seem to find any info on helpers.
  11. L 396 here as well our building started last Monday

    I thought there "wasn't enough work" for that yet.

    Didn't NYC put up a lot of helper bids earlier this year? How is that working out on an everyday basis?

    Well I didn't put all my info down so no one is going to know who I am. It's just a Internet forum, it's not like I'm telling everyone in my building I'm jumping everyone's seniority.

    What you mean? The combo jobs or just the seasonal driver helping?

    I hear what you're saying but trust me when I tell you, people can figure out who you are quicker than you think. I'm just saying, be careful if you want to stay anonymous.

    I'm curious; do you have the official printed copy (book) of your contract, or are you looking through some version you found online?

    Combo jobs, I think they put them up in Aug or sometime close to that.
