    It’s a freeze on days counting towards qualifying to become a ‘permanent’ emplpyee instead of basically temp.

    That time period UPS hires temps/casuals and by the contract those dates do not count towards gaining seniority.

    You can be hired FT and PT in the months of Oct thru Dec. We have several with Nov seniority dates. Just depends on what you were hired for. Seasonal or regular employee.

    Yep.

    Seasonal or permanent.


    I've seen the company make a mistake, and not indicate on the intent sheet

    that it was "supposed" to be seasonal. Then try and go back and have the hourly

    sign an addendum, indicating it's seasonal. If the driver grieves it.... they win.

    The lack of member participation.... undermines the situation.

    Sure. Gave JH and DT a technicality-based way to willingly wiggle out of having to work for the membership. They did not have to go the way they did.

    I get it, though. It's easier to work for the Company than the membership on your way out.

    How would that happen ?

    They should ignore the IBT Constitution....


    And cater to a small group of dissident crybabies ?

    Just count the votes. Majority wins. I'm good with that.

    The majority is a small group?

    It was in this case. A majority of the minority that voted.

    Who cares what the total ballot count is? By using the nonvoters this way, you are assigning a yes vote.
