    In my hub there are two centers currently.. But within the next 3-6 months or so there supposed to bring some old routes back that left a few years back and keep all the present ones.. Expand the building and create a 3rd center..... The building how it is currently is split kind of crazy geographically but now there suppose to resolve that issue and create the new center by combining an area of the two old centers and the new routes will be retained by an existing center...

    My question is how do I determine where I will go? I'm in the Group that Zip Codes are allegedly going to the new center so I assume that's where I'll land.... But because I'm an unassigned full time driver does that even matter?

    Your situation is covered in your local supplement. Get it out and read it.

    No it isn't. This is ish that ups does all the time. It is not in master or supplement stating specific rules on this subject. Same as the bs bids that get posted stating " subject to extreme change or disillusion .

    By group do you mean center? Seems that they would move cover drivers to the new center based on cover drivers preference. Following seniority of course....

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    Cover drivers preference? They will move the cover drivers based on their area knowledge, not personal preference.

    Well our centers are seperated by groups (zips) so the group that in is supposed to be part of the new center forming.... Our center has 5 groups it's fairly big has 150+ drivers

    In the past unassigned fulltime drivers in my area have been allowed to follow work that was moved to another building because none of the bid drivers wanted to move. Sounds like things have changed since then.

    oldngray nowhere special

    When UPS opened a new building near here entire centers moved and everyone in that center had to go. The only way to stay was to win a bid on a route in a center that wasn't moving. Those all got snatched up by very senior drivers. After the move then it was possible but difficult to bid back to the original building if it was a city wide bid.

    Normally you follow your work. In this case being a cover guy you'll go wherever they need you, possibly on the routes you already know so they have less training to do.
