    i am a four yr pkg car driver and this new contract has us starting at 9 910 945 11... is there any language in this contract that says higher seniority drivers can bump lower seniority drivers starting earlier? Swing drivers that is

    Thankfully, you belong to a very strong union that will address your concerns promptly. Lol.

    Sounds like the Company is doing some test trails in your building in regards to the implementation of the soon to be 22.4 hybrid drivers.

    I wouldn't bother grieving it, because by the time it gets heard locally and bounces through the panel system, it will be a mute point.

    Don't answer that, TMI.

    Instead we will ask you if there is any other forward riders or supplements that govern your local?

    Also, I would like to know what your next day air commit times are and who is delivering the air for the late starters in the absence of these routes while they are being held back?

    Grieve everything. Give your union officials something to do.

    Actually in a true "quid pro quo" Local like mine, there are next to no discharges and very few grievances against the Company are ever heard.

    That's the trade-off in it's purest form.

    This way all parties involved can travel extensively and increase their body mass indexes on the Union per diem, while never having to prepare or argue a case or do any real work.

    Yep.

    File on every petty little concern.... even though, it's not a contract violation.


    Develop that type of history.

    Those end up being the weakest locals/regions in the end.

    That's awesome!!!

    Just for my own knowledge, what article did your BA (he) say it was grievance under???

    ....and did you actually grieve it, or did you accept the explanation from your manager and let it go???
