    Is there a classification difference between a bid EAM Air job and a regular Air job?

    Don't think so. I assume you are talking about a PT Air Driver and not a package car driver delivering NDA or EAM.

    Yes. Do u know if a combo air driver with less classification seniority can take my EAM pt work if there isnt enough work?

    No difference where I am. Bid AM air drivers run NDA after EAM. Air exception drivers (qualified inside part timers) can run either or both (full route fill in) as needed.

    EAM & REG AIR are equal. There's no difference.

    If you're speaking about EA FT routes, management can move that from route to route as needed if they choose to as it would be under a 30% change in route description. They generally don't as a rule because the employee working that route chose it for that reason and is generally dispatched as such to accommodate the early start time.

    On a side note, EAM's are changing their name to Early.

    No. Ours is an 8 am commit time on early.

    He was referring to the job classification.

    I hear that we are offering a new service which allows the driver to scan EAMs in the building to make sure they beat the time commit.

    No EAM drivers here; if it falls in your area, you run it.

    ....and it can really mess up your day.

    We don't start until 9:25. Our EAM commit is 9. We use air drivers or FTers who want to start early.

    EAM commit on my area is 1000 hours.
    Next Day is 1200.

    We were told we couldn't do that anymore because of a lawsuit. We have to scan it on the property of the delivery and couldn't have it open with the wheels rolling or it's late.

    I was being facetious.

    In this local, the answer is yes. As a FT combo, I took PT EAM driver work to make my guaranteed 3.5 air hours out of 8.
