    I am a Mon-Fri FT driver. If I were to transfer, would going to the bottom of the seniority list force me in to a hybrid driver schedule?

    Seniority is seniority...You would carry it with you. If that changes expect a lot of pitchforks and torches.

    The interesting aspect of this question for me is whether somebody who hasn't been reclassified as a 22.4 could/would still need to assume the hybrid schedule. Or are they simply knocked to the bottom of the "RPCD" ranks? Which is probably why OP is asking.

    The new language doesn't say anything about RPCD's being reclassified as 22.4's.

    In fact, it says the exact opposite....

    Thank you for putting the original question from the OP into understandable English language.

    To the OP: Everything will be answered on the Teamsters conference call on Tuesday, July 10th. Go to and since you are a low-seniority FT cover driver, pull the truck over with your 50 stops left at 9pm Eastern and call in.

    I actually say something regarding that, I believe they have to be working b4 22.4’s can be used.

    We’re voting it down anyway, so we’ll see where it goes.

    Curious what your reasoning is that PT covers get to work before FT 22.4.

    Here FT trumps PT.

    I’m worried about my only opportunity at full time now will be 22.4s which I absolutely refuse to do. I didn’t put this many years on just to have my hours cut, work weekends and go back to the warehouse. And if I don’t go 22.4 I will lose seniority to those who will take it.

    Scottyhawk What is it? A brown box. Duh

    You would keep your company seniority and be end tailed for bid routes( center seniority), the 22.4 position would be classified as a new position and if required would be forced from the bottom up based on company seniority. So you should be fine

    Package delivery drivers who get back to the building early. Usually taking lunch in the break room while the twi sort takes 10 minute break.

    wide load Starting wage is a waste of time.

    50% of drivers in our building. Some don’t lunch at all. There is a Dunkin’ near the building and I see 5-10 trucks when I’m driving by. They don’t get it. They say stuff like,
    “I have too much business so I can’t lunch in the afternoon”
    And I say “You can have an hour less business if you took your hour at 1”

    This S* cracks me up. I hear the same crap also. I always laugh at them when they complain how blown out they are and I make jokes how you could bowl down the middle of my truck.

    It's just fear. Weak people afraid that management might not like them.
