Hi all... I was wondering about a new bid i got. I finished driving school last week and was told im not gonna begin driving until January. I see the center sending out all the newbie temp drivers now but im shelfed until after peak.(maybe a blessing in disguise) What im wondering is can i gain seniority during the "free months" of oct,nov,dec? In the NNE supplement a-57, s-4, h states emp hired for temp job openings 10/1-12/31 will not attain seniority. Well im not a temp, i work local sort now and have since may. The bid i got was a full time bid for cover driver. So the way i read the contract if i was out there driving now i should be able to get seniority in 30 day. now is the 30 driving days? what if i drive for a week then pulled back into local sort? does that week count or is it just "driving days"? Why am i shelfed while the center sends out temp drivers who have no rights and will be axed in dec? kinda kills the enthusiasm i have to drive, not to mention sitting on my class room training for 2 months before it is applied. Too boot, if i wait til january it puts me really close to the annual bid we do up here. 2nd week of feb all full time jobs are put up for bid. If i attain seniority before the bid is posted there is a chance i would be bumped to another center in the state, if i dont get senority until after the annual bid i will be able to stay at my center for at least a year. Should i push to get on the road now or sit back and let the temp take the abuse of peak?
