I was a seasonal driver off and on for two years but gained seniority in September of 2014 and I successfully completed my 30 days. Therefore I am now a permanently employed driver, however I am at the bottom of the list in seniority in my center. Apparently corporate ordered my center to lay off 3 of our least senior drivers on a week to week basis. I was told I would have the option to work in the hub next week for 2 shifts a day of 3.5 hours each. I know that my being laid off has nothing to do with my merits as a driver since I am, without question, one of the safest and most productive drivers in our center. The lay off is simply a result of being on the bottom of the seniority totem poll. Anyways, my questions is....how common is this? And how long might I expect this layoff to last? I know that they hire seasonals again in the spring so wouldn't they have to put me back to work by then at the latest before they could hire seasonal help? I LOVE my job as a UPS driver and I have been so excited to finally become permanent. So when I learned I was being laid off it was pretty devastating news. I could use some reassurance right now that my career is still safe and that perhaps I'm just over-reacting to a routine and temporary hiccup to my employment status. If anyone has any experiences or advice they can share it would be much appreciated. Thank you!
