My business agent told me this . Says they’re under a part time cover language .
You have part time employees who are trained as part time cover drivers. If they are used as part time cover drivers for the week, they are guaranteed at least 2 days. There is no confusion here.
You also have seasonal package car drivers, which PVD's are. These are not part time cover drivers. They are hired off the street as seasonal package car drivers. They are not part time employees trained as cover drivers.
PVD's are not covered under part time cover drivers.
So possibly an agreement our local made .
No, an interpretation of your local agreement by your BA. UPS has had PVD's in the past. Your local agreement goes back to 2018. This issue should have already come up. Why is it just an issue now?
If UPS uses existing part time cover drivers as PVD's, your BA may have a point. What about the seasonal full time package car drivers hired off the street?
Can I verify the paperwork in this (no) but this is what I’m told by the business agent.
If you are a member of Local 317, you have the right to have this agreement in writing. Ask your BA for it and show me.
I think it’s funny that trucker clock feels the need to sit here posting with his negative bull
No. I just don't blow smoke up people asses. I tell them the way it is, based on contractual language, whether they like it or not.
Do you want me to sit here and hold your hand, and tell you that you are right, to give you a participation trophy, just to make you feel good and show you that I am a "good" Teamster.
Sorry if the truth hurts.
About 10% of the members I deal with tell me the same thing. I tell them the way it is. They are hurt because I tell them they are wrong.
Again, sorry if the truth hurts.
If your BA can prove me wrong, I will not have an issues stating that I am wrong. I have a copy of your Local Rider, Do you?
