    What region/rider are you under. I remember some language like that but it might be regional. Need more info to help you.

    Boywondr The truth never changes.

    It's not "an emergency" for drivers to go out in the blind. Come on, they have map navigation. So they cant use that excuse. Should've filed the first day not weeks later. Where is your steward???

    Not your problem. Here they cant do it. They dont even bother asking.

    Here it would be on the bid language. I'm sure its different everywhere.

    They can’t force guys off their route here. In your case you’d be doing Management a favor and couldn’t file for anything.

    Thank you @govols019
    I remembered hearing it before but didn't remember the region.

    The whole bidding weekly is new for you guys as well isn't it?

    Poop Head Lovin' every minute of it!

    Bidding weekly? Who's bright idea was that.

    Almost as bad as bidding start times! @MyTripisCut

    My center for the coverage drivers they can bid routes for the week and run the route that a bid driver has while he’s on vacation. If no drivers on vacation all coverage goes unassigned.

    Yah, I mean I’m cover, I have no idea about drivers that have routes.

    What does that entail if you are bumped from your own route?

    Technically, I have a bid route, but it’s a split route and isn’t always in. It’s classified as a ‘training route’, so the end result is I run it 30% of the year.

    There’s no ground for me to file on when they stick me in another town on someone else’s route.

    It’s a pickle.

    Sht is gonna get strange when the 22.4’s are fully implemented...

    Yeah sounds like you are at the mercy of a few different Articles. Being a cover and a training route all at once has to be tough.

    I believe he's New England being that he lives just outside boston.

    One thing is, if you are on a training route..

    I enjoy being cover, but the nonsense is deafening.

    Might have to bid a proper route...

    For all intents and purposes, I’m a cover driver.

    govols019 You smell that?

    Yeah....from what I hear the cover drivers seem to like it.
