When the hell do i get to be full-time? I have been driving since the first week of may - on an unbid route from may to july, and then a bid route that the driver got hurt on from july till now. I've only been off like 6 days, 3 for surgery, 1 i was sick (hungover from a bachelor party), and 2 i decided i didn't want to bump another driver with less seniority so i could go back to bed. Another driver has been driving consistently since last peak, and has only been laid-off (preload) for one week out of this year. Are we being abused as TCD's? For the record We have one driver that is out on military leave, one went crazy and we are unsure if he is going to take disability, another one retires on the 31st, one was in an accident in february and it is unclear if she is coming back (tire blew out and flipped the truck), and another had surgery and will be back in march. Is the reason we are still TCD's because of these driver's having unfortunate events? Or is management just using us and not letting us in the full-time progression? I mean i don't mind the TCD rate of pay but i don't want the possibility of "hey, now you get to work for 10.00 again." Call me selfish but i'd rather be paid full time pay for p/t work if we bargained that way.
