    Ok nobody seems to know the answer to this. Not even our on road sups.

    Driver A has been on preload 7 years and has recently become a FT driver for almost a year and half.

    Driver B has been on preload 10 years and now wants a driver position. So he signed the sheet. When he gets this will he push driver A out of a spot being he has more total building señority ? Or does señority re-set itself according to position. Would this also follow suit for air drivers

    Has Driver A made his/her seniority or is he/she a casual/cover driver? If he/she has made his/her seniority he/she will have seniority over Driver B.

    There are 3 drivers in my center who have more company seniority than me (they all worked on the inside) that I have classification seniority over (I was hired off the street).

    Going from PT to FT is just like starting over again. Go to the back of the line no matter how much PT seniority you may have.

    Yes he has made señority. So if he hadn't driver B could bump him?

    They would both be casuals---casuals don't have seniority---they are used based on area knowledge so, no, B could not bump A.

    There is building seniority and then driver seniority. Driver A has driver seniority over driver B when Driver B makes his 30 days as a driver he will have the lowest driver seniority.

    When route goes out to bid driver A has more seniority then driver B. Driver B can't bump driver A off a route.

    Driver A will have more full-time seniority than driver B, UNLESS driver B was already full-time inside employee, then he would jump into seniority order along with the other full-time drivers.

    Driver A will be the senior driver because driver A will have been full-time longer than driver B, regardless of driver B being with the company longer.

    It's company seniority. Doesn't matter full time or part time. I was PT for 3 1/2 yrs. when I went ft I jumped over 15 guys in seniority. Only thing is I have to do 25 full time years to get a full time pension.
