    Hey guys,

    Last week I finished training for a utility/cover and sat. air driver.

    I find out, when I get back into town, im at the bottom of the list and won't even be called in to do Sat. Air let alone Cover Drive.

    Anyways, I'm back at work doing my regular job and a buddy of mine comes running up to me flaming :censored2: - he tells me the story -

    "a supervisor who works in the office during the morning also delivers misloads (and probably more) during the afternoon."

    He tells me- "dude you need to grieve it!"

    And I agree, however since I'm at the bottom of the list I won't benefit from the grieving process, because if they did call a utility driver to fill in this spot, they'd call one of the dozen people above me on the utility list.

    1) Is there a way to grieve this anonymously?

    2) what do you guys think?

    I told my angry friend to tell this story to the people at the top of the utility list, and not me, because they'd benefit from it.

  2. Who ever grieves the issues is the one who gets paid.

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    The only way you would benefit is if you were the only utility driver not working. Yeah, it sucks, but there isn't much that you can do about it.

    Anyone qualified who is not working on the same day a sup is on road by him/herself can file.

    Sups do stuff like that all the time. They usually get away with it since they do it when no hourly are around to see them.

    You can grieve it or not complain when you don't work. Not both.

    Don't forget to quiz the sup on the methods.

    Keep in mind that filing a grievance may backfire and could put you at the bottom of their list.

    Even if you do work you can file for it. It's a sup working. Taking hours away from a union employee. Yeah they may frown on you for it but that won't affect your chances at going full time. That is all done by seniority. They can't say," he files grievances so let's keep him part time."

    Yes makes sense. I figure it would affect the workload they give me. Here's an extra 20 stops.

  15. If management is doing union work, the person that files that is qualified to perform that job is the one that gets paid. As long as no one with more seniority files you get the money!

    Very cool! Thanks dude. I'm heading to my local on monday!

    I wish more folks would grow a set when issues rise up. I guess I'll have to do it for everyone.

    I've known about him working all week, part time hours.

    So can I grieve him working Tuesday through Friday?

    We had a feeder cover driver who worked nights. His wife ran a daycare in their which made it hard for him to sleep. He was asked to work and told them no---they never called him back.

    cosmo1 Now, a low life jack wagon, and still loving it.

    Didn't you tell us in a previous thread that he was a casual? Big difference between cover and casual.
