I have several questions but before I get started I want to give a general background... I started working at UPS a year ago, started out in unload then after 6-7 months I became a tender and recently signed a bid sheet for TCD - temporary cover driver which I got called and went through the training class. The past 2 weeks I've been out with supervisors but only 2 days a week I drive and the rest are working in the hub. I only got to drive by myself the 4th day. My questions: 1) how many days should a TCD be working in terms of driving each week? 2 days isn't much really.. 2) how does someone become a full time driver (I know it's early but can't find straight answers)? and how does the pay change? *I'm making $29.25/hr as TCD starting out 3) do drivers work on Saturdays? I heard some do, and if so, can TCD's work Saturday? 4) when I'm not driving I am told to work in the hub and send the working times to someone on the drivers side to make adjustments, now when I work in the hub, shouldn't I go back to tender which was the position before I became a TCD instead of unload? Because I got thrown in unload. And if I'm supposed to be back as a tender but the supervisor won't put me back there then should I let the union know? 5) how long does it take for someone to become a full time driver and how does it happen? Does the manager ask us or do we ask them? 6) what's the top pay these days for drivers? 7) how do I request overtime work as TCD or full time driver? I'm trying to make as much money as possible since I'm not married and I need to save up for marriage/house/etc.. 8) what should be my next steps to move forward as a TCD? Gain seniority and become full time driver, choose my own route etc Any help appreciated this is important to me, thank you.
