    As long as you are being paid your rate for doing other work, I would'nt really worry about it. That's easy for me to say because it's not me. I signed up to be a seasonal driver and I have yet to be called. I will be paid $17.29 per hour if I go seasonal. I just go to work and do my job. I don't even ask when am I going to go "Reg Temp". They will call me when they need me.
    It's up to you. I guess you could ask your supervisor.

    Amy...I fail to see how this program works for you.

    How would the Union allow a PT Perm. employee in an Air Driver classification deliver ground for $17.29hr when we are at $28+ depending upon where you are.

    In the real world - you deliver ground with your air you get full rate for the day.

    Then again why would you not grieve it? If they have the work for you to do since they are understaffed - then it would be full ground rate.

    Because I would go back to my PT Air driving position. 17.29 would be a huge pay increase. This is only for peak season. Brown Creek was hired to be a seasonal driver but ended up jumping. This was last year not this year. It's just October.

    True. However, I was on the other day and there is a district hiring helpers now. My brother is going to be a helper/jumper for us here in Colorado this year, so I'm keeping my eye on that site. -Rocky
