    About 3 weeks into my training run, got sent home. Are drivers who are trying to make book allowed to be sent home? I was told from another a driver it should be considered as a priority run, or is that just bs

    While it would be ideal to have 30 consecutive days, they do have the right to send you home if volume is down for that day.

    Do you know who your union steward is?
    You'll get different answers because of different supplement and riders, but here I have never heard of a" priority run" and you have zero seniority so you would be one of the first told to go home

    Me either. We were slow and so the guy who had the route just worked Mondays to keep his insurance. Took me almost 3 months to finish my packet, came in every Monday, I only worked one Monday during my whole packet and that’s cause dude called in. Just gotta play the game, man.

    You are wrong again.
    In many locations if you run a different route during training you automatically qualify.

    Just one stop is all it takes here. 1 stop that’s not on your training route and you automatically qualify.

    Technically not wrong if he was implying bumped off to not drive the day.
    But if used to do a different run, then you’re qualified.
