    It does sound like she's being considered for one of these 22.4 positions as they told her the work week is Tues - Sat. What are the major differences between the 22.4 and a RPCD?

    The major differences are lower pay for the same job, no protections against unwanted OT, and the certainty of working the weekends since UPS will be a 7 day operation after peak this year. And, of course, it's a combo job -- which means inside work as well as driving, but most people here expect 22.4s will be driving almost exclusively, e.g., the position is part of a longer-term strategy to undermine the pay of RPCDs.

    Tues-Sat doesn't necessarily mean they're ushering her into 22.4. Most of the newer RPCDs in my center are Tues-Sat.

    They had her back in today to get her docs (CDL, Med card, etc). Set her up for a road test with a clutch on Monday. I think they even set her up with a school date for the EOM!

    Hi all..

    Had a first interview with HR, and also a second with a supervisor at our Spokane airport UPS warehouse/hanger. Apparently they are gearing up to start training and employing people for a Sept 15th start date kicking off a massive expansion..

    Both interviews went excellent, and feel that likely will get the job.. Which is part time loading/unloading, 4:00 am to 8:00 am. Sounds like it could be at least a couple weeks before I hear from HR though.. Then a training period so all us new hires know our jobs ahead of time for the Sept 15th expansion start date.

    Feeling good about the job ! :wink2:

    Ok. Her road test is on Tuesday. Even though she knows how to drive a clutch she is leery about driving a package car. She's worried it's just to "weed" her out even though they said they have only three manuals in station. Told her to not worry about it and not hit anything :)

    Thanks. I'm sure she'll know soon enough. They do seem to be moving very quickly to qualify her and bring her on-board.

    Even if they're classifying her as a 22.4, once she qualifies and accrues enough seniority, she could win a bid and become an RPCD.
