    Manager let me know I was getting Laid off next tuesday til no idea. I'm a part time worker. I been here for 6 months. This is my second job "Thank God". How does this process work? How long can I get laid off until i'm fired/relieved of my duties with ups. i'm not the lowest on the pole, but the only guy under me is a designated responder. We are already two overstaffed and now we have 3 full time drivers working with us. Thanks in advance

    What area of the country are you in?
    I don't know much about the lay off process, but I have seen pt'ers laid off for a few weeks and called back when things pick up. These employees were guys that hadn't made book at the time. I have never seen a seniority employee laid off.

    You're ok, they'll call you when they need you. I got laid off for two weeks three years ago. Like you..I didn't know what to think/to do. If they do hire or call somebody in thats below you..grieve the he11 outta it.

    They are laying off Clerks in NYC. There are 4 clerks that just got bumped down to part-time employees. It's unfortunate that a guy who has over 20 years get's bumped to part-time, but the wording in the contract is what it is at the moment.
