I am leaving for military leave in July. I am also graduating OSU in the next couple of weeks. I have 8 years with UPS PT and would like a FT job, either combo or driving. I talked to my Union rep briefly about the possibility of bidding on jobs while I was away. He basically told me I was SOL. So, I am going to talk to my JAG officer at the base this weekend to see what exactly my rights are under USERRA. I thought I could let management and HR know of my intent and that if a position came open and I had enough seniority I could fill that position. I was basically told no that the union does not work like that. Just looking for some clarification, first hand accounts are always great.
