An EAM driver in my building has the most seniority (20 years) of all DOT qualified PT drivers. Because of his seniority he could pick up time running 1030s 1200s and savers left behind or if a driver had too many. He could even pick up time running shags and helping drivers make 8 and 9.5s. If there isn't enough TCDs he might even get to run a route. With 22.4 he can kiss all that work goodbye to a kid with no seniority and makes way less money. Sure he can become a 22.4 but he gives $10 per hour and loses his mon-fri eam job to work Tues-Sat So much for all those years accruing seniority. He can kiss it goodbye.
