    I have done a bit of searching, but have yet to find anything conclusive. My question is about staggered start times, and whether or not this is something that is allowed. If in fact staggered start times are allowed, do the early start times go by seniority? At the present, start times are not being done by seniority, rather they are being determined by our work areas. Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks to all in advance.

    in my hub they are done by work area and by seniority and if they need people to come in early to start in other areas early then it is extra work and that is done by seniority. our sup does a fair job about seniority, he does it wrong we bring it to him and the next day it is fixed.

    Contractually, staggered starts are not allowed.

    Do you have the NMA/supplement article number to back up this statement?

    hmmmm, everyone starting their vehicles inside a building around the same start time sounds like a health & safety issue.

    we have had these types of start times for over 18 years in my hud and people have filed on this before and it was ruled that UPS can do this because of Safety issues. they will have the upper hand in this issue.

    I won on this issue in my center. Of course, my center is very small.
