    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    I believe so but do you mean part time?


    Here our cover drivers are full time drivers accruing full time pensions. I've been a cover driver almost my entire 15 years career so far.

    We have cover drivers and work / pay is just like a 22.4 . Southern Cali western conference

    Yeah I've heard a lot of guys compare the two.


    But those guys don't get ft pension accrual and contributions?

    maybe FT pension and contribution are the trade off because ups is going to grind these guys hard . Maybe the union ask for that to let them do it across the nation

    In 688 we have full-time "x-men". Nobody's part-time that delivers all service levels.

    We have full time cover drivers, they don’t have a bid route, they still make the same thing as a full time driver (full time driver defined as a driver with a bid route) and are still guaranteed 8hrs a day.

    Here cover drivers are called split drivers. Essentially drivers that don’t have a bid route. Everything else is the same. Same pay structure. Same guarantee of hours. Only difference is they cover different routes from day to day.

    Wrong. They will become RPCDs. Many have higher seniority than those drivers with routes.

    Uhhh no. They aren’t second class drivers in any sense. Some have more seniority than bid drivers. Everything in the 177 is seniority.

    No, those jobs will be red-circled. If you have 50 drivers and only 45 routes. You still have 50 drivers.
