Casual driver, been laid off since December 23rd. Was told by the center manager "you'll be back next week", then, "you'll be back on friday" and on and on, so now after what...four weeks, I call and he says that I can't start until March 1st because it's a "union thing" After being told how shorthanded my center is I can't see the logic. I need to work. I went through peak doing over 1000 stops a week, with no injuries or accidents. My supe says he's fighting to get me back full time, I just don't get this March 1 deal. Also, I started on the road this past summer, been through 2 free periods already.
