So , there is an article , maybe (off the top of my head ) article 48 , not sure , but its there that states , that basically the company and the union both are in agreement on a ratio that states that out of every 5 or 6 jobs that is allocated/awarded to hourly employees, whom have signed the part time to fulltime bid list for future full time jobs . So the way it works for you , to your advantage, is that you submit a hand written, or typed letter implying that you are interested in any future package car, combo 22.3 or now 22.4 (lol) job , or feeder , or whatever type job is becoming available soon , and why you need,want , deserve this job . I believe the ratio is 1 to 6 , maybe 1 to 5 , meaning for every 6 hourly employees that take a job ,or for every 5 hourly employees that bid and are awarded a new job , then the company can award the next job to whomever they choose. It could be a guy straight off the street, another hourly union guy with 1 day of seniority, or a 2 month/2year old supervisor, it's up to the company's discretion as to whom they choose to appoint into the new Saud job. This is a real thing , it does happen , you need to submit a letter (hand written or typed) to both Human resource office and your current hub sort manager , not supervise, manager . Good luck , and join the union after you are awarded the job .
