    I am in the southern supplement and I cannot not find anything about junk routes. The issue is the management never put up junk routes that are in 4 out of 5 days up to bid for the week. Anyone know what the policy of that is? They do put up bids for people on vacations and such but not junk routes...thanks for the help..

    Sincerely

    Kanovic

    In the central the route needs to be in for 30 consecutive days

    If they don’t want it bid they’ll bust it up on day 29

    I believe it's the same for his area too.

    Junk routes(split routes for us) here are not put up either.

    Well poop!

    Someone told me they have to be in 16 days out of 30 or something for it to become a route but I can’t find any info

    Quick search but this is the only thing I found. Do you have a local rider?

    It is. We just got a rte put up for bid. I was on them for the consecutive days run at 30 days. By the time they gave me the answer it was 50+ days run. Was up for bid the same day.

    I’m in the Southern. The language says “all” routes shall be bid so ours are. Except the ones that appear only during peak. But the ones that aren’t in every single day but are in every week are bid. We haven’t started the vacation bids yet. I think the stewards are the ones stalling on that one.

    A few reasons actually. The main one is they won’t be able to run some of their favorite routes when a seniority driver goes home unless they risk staying unassigned that week. If no one goes home then they are stuck with junk routes.

    Thanks for finding that. I wonder how hard the Ba would push them because I am sure they could use it both ways and says junk/split routes are not real routes since they are not in everyday. Seems like loose language.

    Where can I find the southern supplement online? I just keep finding the master.

    The current isn’t available yet. I am using the “tentative” copy online and the 2013-2018 book until both are updated.

    I have been running the same split route 5 days a week for about 6 weeks. They will change the route number on it periodically, just to avoid having to bid it.
