    They are talking about switching some M-F drivers to T-S in my Center. I have only 3 years and am worried they’ll bump me to the T-S schedule. Can they do that?
  2. Don't worry you'll stay Monday through Friday

    Plus Saturday

    They did the same thing here to a bunch of people. If you are a swing driver you’re screwed. They tried to get me too because of seniority, but I’m a M-F bid driver and the union put the kibosh on that real quick.

    The Union
    and Company commit to protect existing RPCDs from being sched-
    uled or forced to perform weekend delivery work and increasing the
    number of full-time opportunities for part-time employees. To
    achieve these objectives,

    We are having that talk her as well. Starting in July we are starting Saturday ground, will be interesting what they do.

    Thanks for weighing in on this. Management here is saying that Saturday’s are going to get increasingly heavier while just the opposite holds true for Monday’s. Do you find this to be true in your center as well?

    They'll need to hire 22.4s and a grievance should be filed right away if they do not.

    . File if they don’t hire any 22.4’s if they keep forcing me in on saturdays or file if they try and switch me from M-F to T-S?

    I would file article 22.4 either way. If they are forcing you to a T-S schedule than that means they need to hire more 22.4s I'm telling @Wontmake9.5 to file because if they start Saturday ground where he is that means they should be hiring 22.4s to cover it.

    Ok. Just to be clear. Let’s say I get to stay M-F but still have to punch in on Saturday. I can file for that? Thanks again for any info on this matter. Much appreciated
  14. They're forcing the bottom guys at sixth punch here too.
