Nothing is for free
Whats it like peeing in a bottle and eating "snacks" for 6 days?
Don’t tell @MyTripisCut ’s sister that!
You were able to get hired into automotive at 19 ?
How did you transition into feeders ?
I wasn't aware there was a supplement that allowed that. I'd like to read that.
Change of operations and by local agreement open up lot's of possibilities.
Calling me a liar?
Gosh, you don't know everything?
Btw, I spent 15 years in pkg car prior to feeders (15 yrs).
Anything else BIG NOSY UNION GUY?
I just asked a question.... was that so hard ?
In my area.... pretty much.
Do you pay for socks.... Or, are you a rebel ?
All our mechanics would love to get into feeders. Can't happen here.
Mechanics in my area are IAM.... so there is no "path" to feeders for them.
It's a different Union here
The funny thing is though, our tractor mechanic didn't have a CDL so the feeder dept put him through training the same as feeder drivers. 1 week school and 1 week production. Then tested him. LOL.
One building in my Local has a huge shop, and all the mechanics have CDL's.
Never said I was a mechanic.
Your probing questions are to tear me down/destroy my credibility. Your wild speculation is just that.
It's just like that. Don't forget truck stop food.
For that information.
A 19 year old would not be hired as a mechanic, I think the minimum is 21 and the youngest I have seen was 23... that would be about 5 years experience, probably the minimum the company would consider.
He said he was not a mechanic, maybe the IBT shops have a utility mechanic position? It’s basicly a porter for auto shops.. they are not allowed to work on trucks.
Feeders is probably the best job in the company, just takes awhile to get there.
Yup, IAM here... there is no path, we can leave automotive and go to plant engineering, some guys view that as a easier job.... not so sure it is easier.
We have language in our contract that the company will provide training if they need the mechanic to have a CDL
We used to be all CDL, now the bids that will have package fleets don’t have a CDL requirement
Lot's of facets to "automotive".
No need to question you to do that.
You are in one badass Local.
You can get hired into automotive at 19 yrs old.... and then....
Dovetail in to pkg car and feeders, on a "change of operations" ???
40 years ago ??
This is legendary.
Who are these kick-ass Union leaders ?
Trying..... to.... hold back..... smart ass.... remark....
