I may be wrong, but I think these are temporary positions. To pull someone off a sort and let them drive for 2 months means they would have to replace their current position for 2 months as well. It's also a way to feel out drivers for outside hires.
<font color="000000"><font face="arial,helvetica"></font>i think you hit the nail on the head. ups does not want to run the feeder school to train new drivers. beshides some full-timers may want to sit behind a wheel for the summer and maybe even get out during peak. just another way for ups to get around the union. would the temp drivers have to join the teamsters?</font>}
This is the labor dept. protecting their butt. Before they hire from outside they have to offer to all part timers who meet the qualifactons of outside
hires. There will be very few part timers if any that have a CDL with class T endorsement, over two years of all weather tractor trailer excperience and a clean driving record.
