    TCD's are put on road based on area knowledge, not seniority.

    There is no seniority for TCDs.

    I've never thought @UpstateNYUPSer was stupid, just ignorant.

    He worked in a small (25 driver) building and was an off-the-street hire.

    Not much room for promotion there....

    Wrong, tcds get to bid routes and asked to work in seniority order

    we have had jobs added because of this language.

    just recognize that just because a TCD gets those punches doesn’t mean that job is his. we still follow seniority.

    there was some confusion about that here, with some guys thinking that since they were the one with the 156 reports, that the job belonged to them.

    usually we didn’t have to file either, just asked them to give us the driver punch count for said employees and there was a bid sheet pulled out and the process for promotion starts.

    We usually only had 1 a year tho, not a lot at one time like you are saying.

    This is exactly how I became a full-time driver. A cover driver had over 156 reports. I didn’t have to file a grievance just had steward take the issue up with management. My seniority was backdated months to when the 156th report took place.

    If Dave says that they have no seniority then they have no seniority.

    Rick Ross I'm into distribution!!

    When I covered we had our top TCD file on this thinking he would get the job. Another PT employee with more seniority signed it and got the bid. He was a real jerk so we were all happy about it even though we didn't move up a spot on the TCD list.

    Our Center has had several full-time positions created over the last couple of years... the grievance has to be written. These grievances are usually written by the tcd's because once they hit 156 they get paid out at the cover driver 8 hour rate for vacations and holidays the following calendar year.... incentive.

    PASinterference Yes, I know I'm working late.

    IE keeps up with it here. They won't announce the 156th report, but it is documented. Highest seniority part timer can fill the spot. No arguing over it. No way to hide it or deny it. Kinda strange its one of the few things they don't fight lately. Although they do announce it like they do it out of the goodness of their own heart. Riiiiiiight. Like they have a heart.

    The issue is. We're looking at around 40 cover drivers with 156 reports. I just don't see the company going for that without a big fight.

    Tough :censored2:, they agreed to the terms of the contract. They should have payed more attention.

    Yes but we all know how that goes.

    The company should be happy they got away with that for as long as they did.

    If you've got that many working that much then you should have had those positions all along.

    Our center seems to do that. We have fulltime drivers that have only been with ups for like 2 years because we have used so many cover drivers. We had in my center around 12 cover drivers 6 of them are now fulltime within the last 6months or so.

    The cover driver language was taken advantage of here badly.
