    Transfers are prohibited. You may wish to inquire about a de facto transfer... in which you quit & are re-hired as an off the street employee, starting over. We have a few drivers who went that route. Or if your wife banks sufficient monies, she can commute via air to work.

    Not everywhere are they prohibited. We can transfer anywhere in our region for any reason.

    You can go into management and if your wife makes more money then you, you then can get a hardship transfer. I believe that's what it's called but I know for fact due to a friend of mine did that exact thing in transferring to Texas from California. It was roughly 5 years ago that he transferred.

    I am betting this is not going to turn out well for the OP. Unless turning out well, means finding a job with a company other than UPS.

    I should rephrase---for those of us with all of our teeth who are not unusually close to their opposite-sex siblings there is only one LA.

    You're not commenting on somethng far from your neck of the woods....are you ?? You have no context. Besides, that's just insulting to all Louisianans.
