    We have guy that is a back up feeder driver for almost a year and an a more senior driver getting ready to do feeder school. Who has the senority to choose vacations first and who is eligible for the work first?

    I think it is the more senior guy once he gets his 30 days in

    Her when you go from package to feeders everyone goes to the bottom of feeders seniority list regardless of company time. For example I have 3 people who pick vacation after me in feeders who have more company time than me. They came into feeders after me so I'm higher on the seniority list.

    depends on your supplement but it should be the person with the most full time seniority.

    You have to read your contract supplement. It is different all over the place.

    That's probably why I didn't want to go into feeders right now.

    Which is stupid. There's no reason a guy with 3 years should have rights over a guy with 30 years just because he chose that particular job sooner.

    Works the same when you go from p/t to f/t. Same when going to a 22.3 job. Whenever changing classification that has a separate seniority list you go to the bottom. I've never heard anyone complain.

    That's because they don't know any better. Or just accept how it is.

    Tell me how this is not the case in your building.

    We have building seniority. So if I were to make the move from FT package to feeders today, I would drop into line of the approximate 250 drivers in feeders now and I would fall into about the 75th spot. so the 23 years I've put into this actually pays off in the end.

    Does this only apply to feeders? Does a 20 year part timer pick vacation before a 5 year driver or do they pick on a separate list?
