    Has anyone had success transferring to another UPS facility less than 50 miles from the UPS you worked at previously? Apparently, MS and GA use their own rule that you can't transfer to another hub or center unless it's 50+ miles away. No where in the current union book or on upsers.com is the such a WRITTEN rule. I spoke to someone in Jax, Fl and they've never heard of such a rule, not even HR in Jax, Fl.
    I feel it's fair game I can transfer to another facility but might have to file a grievance to "rock the boat". I've transferred numerous times over the years 50+miles but don't understand why a mileage range is put into effect.

    From forest park, ga to Griffin, ga. They're less than 40 miles apart.

    What about an educational transfer?

    That's what I'm doing but Forest Park Hr tells me 50+ miles to the next UPS in order to transfer. I've been with UPS over 15 yrs and never heard such thing. I even called in a favor and was told through the grapevine from a labor mgr it's a GA thing. Well, MS does the same thing after I back tracked to a contact there. I plan on grieving just to see where I can get if denied by mgmt. HR is a glorified info desk that has no official say so as far as approval or denial of me trying to transfer.

    I missed the educational part in the title. Sounds like you are going to need to file that grievance.

    Looks like we both don't read very well. She is in GA not FL.

    Not if you don't make time and tell mgmt what you think with decorum.

    I work in West Forest Park Center, I don’t blame you for wanting to get out!

    I know for a fact two part-timers who transferred to buildings <50 miles away, though I don't remember if they were educational transfers.

    I have heard of people quitting and getting re-hired, but you lose raises and seniority. Griffin Center is only 27 miles away from the Forest Park Hub and is in a different Division.

    Its has to be educational transfer. They do hardship transfers but you have to present evidence to back it.

    I won't risk quitting after the vacation time and pay rate I've worked for.
