I drove in Oct 2007 I think starting the 2nd week in Oct (not sure it was a long time ago) till the end of Christmas. After 2007 I got a full time at a printing shop working local sort at UPS. I was to low on the sonority list to remain part time cover driving every year. I am going back out this year as I thought I was first on the list. But now my sups tell me November December don't count towards a part time cover driver getting his 30 days. So I never got it. My local union leader told me no...30 day is 30 days and your sups have things confused between a fulltime driver and a cover driver. I can still see my rate on UPSers from my paycheck but only starting the week ending Nov 17. I made $17.29 an hour. Which if you look it up the starting wage was 16.10 and seniority was 17.25. So going by my rate does that mean I got my 30 days? Or am I screwed, having to go back through my 30 days and being right on the boarder getting it in before the new contract hits and my rate drops. I'm going out on the 4th and they tell me its very solid this year. But I could only get laid off 3 days and still me 30 before August 1st. Also it reads 30 days in a row without being laid off. Well that is impossible for a Temp driver because we don't work mondays till after Thanksgiving.
