    Part Time cover feeder driver, seniority date 9/14. Worked my way up to number 5. Looking at full-time next year, now all the sudden they want to go back to a 30-year rule must be packaged qualified in order to be full-time feeder. Makes no sense! The last 30 full-time guys have never been in a package car.. just don't understand! #449. Buffalo,N.Y.

    If the union doesn't help you then contact the NLRB.

    The rule at my building is you must have one year safe driving in the package car classification before you can bid into Feeders. PT or FT air driving does not count. Never heard of a PT Feeder driver.

    That’s bull:censored2: But reason being is if the feeder route ever got cut or abolished you can Bump a junior package driver route or bid inside. And they will be cutting a lot of the inside full time jobs soon with new automated sort system soon. They must know that there will be little or few inside full time jobs available and might be the reason for using old rule

    Under the new contract 2013 to 2018, appendix a page 228 actually starts page 227 with a new Part Time cover driver

    Business agent says article 57 paragraph d we've read it over and over and it does not say that which draws me back to appendix a bold letters new Part Time cover driver page 228 explains the bidding process probably does not help that our business agent is a package car driver

    The last 20 feeder drivers we have full-time have never stepped foot in a package car

    I understand that with the automatic systems and such, but that old rule is no longer even in the contract which would fall under article 6 of non-contractual

    I think maybe I should get a call in to Washington to see if that will do any good our Union representation in Buffalo is horrible. I would gladly take any advice from anyone out there who could help me on this issue

    Different rules for off the street Feeder hire. Two years verifiable experience in tractor trailer in all types of weather.

    It cut a few part-time jobs in my building but not as many as you would think.

    We have added full-time employees since we automated.

    I thought all feeder spots were considered part time based on how many actually worked hours they have.

    Nope. It just feels that way when you realized how stupid you were to stay in package car.
