    apparently the bid sheets were out for full time article 22 and no once knoew about them until after they were taken down. the bid sheets are on the complete opposite side of the hub. it literally takes me 7 mins to walk over there. why isnt there notification from a supervisor that they are up . and shouldnt they be placed in an area where all employees have access to them like a time clock or the entrance to the hub so all employees have an EQUAL opportunity????

    Here, bids are put on each sorts/centers information board. If they are not on each board, then the bid gets rebid.

    Wherever the bids are posted it is your own responsibility to check. You snooze, you lose.

    Call your BA immediately. It might be too late but i've seen bid sheets reposted for various reasons. This is the first year our building went away from bid sheets and it's all done on the computer now. People were supposed to be notified in pcm's but many work areas weren't.

    Aren't they signed by a shop steward before being posted? It isn't like someone doesn't know about them.

    Not necessarily. Our new center manager had a bad habit of posting bid sheets on the wall just outside of his office rather than on the bulletin board where they post everything else. A grievance was filed and the bid sheets are now posted for all to see.

    Yes but if you miss seeing them posted at that new location you are out of luck. There has to be a designated place which is usually the bulletin board which your center manager wasn't doing. The OP knew where his bids were posted but admitted he didn't look.

    No one knew about them?
    If that is true, not one person signed the bid list.
    Is that what you are saying?

    If they were posted in the usual spot, even if it's an out of the way spot, it's your fault for not checking. They have to be in an accessible area, but there's nothing that says they have to be convenient. My hub posts them near the entrance, but if they posted them near the far break area which is probably more than a quarter mile from the entrance and they always posted there they can get away with it.

    Now if they weren't posted in the usual spot without some notice the bid sheets were going to be placed there you have a legitimate grievance.

    Your best bet is to get to know your stewarts and union agents...

    It is your job to keep up with it. Supervisors don't have anything to do with bid sheets. All you have to do is walk over and check once a week.

    No he shouldn't have to walk from the parking lot to the building either. We should be carrying him on a golden throne

    A simple google search would tell you, an average person, of average health can walk a mile in 15 minutes.

    That said, do you think it's fair for anyone to walk half a mile to "hopefully" find a bid list?

    Furthermore, as a feeder driver, can you recall the last time you walked a half mile for anything?

    In my building, (a medium size hub) there's at least 1000 employees on at least 4 different sorts and god knows how many work areas. If they can't bother to keep up with the stuff on the board, what do you think is reasonable? Should the division manager and the steward walk around and ask every hub employee in seniority order?
    And yes, it's fair to put it wherever they put it, so long as it's a regular spot that is accessible to everyone.

    The question comes down to whether or not it was posted on his sorts information board, if it wasn't, he has a grievance, if so, he is out of luck.
