    I keep reading that one cant get family coverage until a year or 18 months.
    Is this true for a FT driver?

    I would imagine that would depend upon your regional union contract, but I could be wrong. Hopefully others will come along that know more than I do.

    That's pretty much everyone here.

    12 months for family coverage is for part time employees (or at least most of them-there are some exceptions).

    For full time driver (permanent, not seasonal or casual), everything I've ever seen was full coverage (family) shortly after completing the probationary period. So roughly 2-4 months after starting.
