Does an RPCD keep their route while training or deployed? Bids are for life in my local. I was at the right place at the right time and I bid on a very good route compared to 95% of the other routes in my building. If I go away to Basic Training then AIT school or when I am eventually deployed, will my route be put up for permanent bid? I know UPS has to hold my job, continue my progression, and my local will hold my seniority, but I can find anything on keeping my route. Thanks.
