I am a Steward in Santa Cruz, Ca where we have a bit of a dilemma brewing. In brief: Case #1 involves a 12-year employee just now claiming he was not awarded a bid from September of '06. (18 Months past). A copy of the bid sheet backs his claim. The Manager in charge has since left the company. The Driver with the claim states he had no knowledge the route was awarded to someone with less seniority. Does he have a case? Case #2 involves a driver who has just returned from comp after a 1 year absence. A route was bid and awarded 6 months ago without the driver out on comp being notified of the bid. She would like the route. What is the remedy in this case? The new Manager has basically asked us to resolve this issue as we the union reps. Any and all help is very much appreciated.
