Been lurking here for a long time but I must post this. For all you who have had friends working for purple only to see them lose their route because of being out past the 45 or 90 day limit, they may have a law suit they may want to file soon. Understanding policy, being out past 45 days meant a couriers route must be forfeited and placed for bids period no questions asked. We have a situation where a senior courier, with connections high up, was out past 45 days. The route went up for bids and now the new courier will start next week. Problem is, senior courier is possibly being coached by a higher up and will probably get back onto the route. Now when this happens, every courier in the history of the purple, will have a case from losing their original position. Those couriers should have been informed as to what they needed to do to keep their routes. It's discriminatory to have one courier because of connections keep their route but not give equal treatment to others. We will know by 2 weeks time how this plays out. We had two guys at our station leave because they didn't want to become floaters, after losing their routes. And will to be called by a co-worker pending the out come of this matter. Will let you guys know what happens.
