Hi everyone, I need some UPS advice. My husband was hired off the street almost 2 years ago as a TCD. It was NOT during peak season. Infact June will be 2 years. Anyway, things have been great up until recently. He's been sent home a lot be/c of volume. But we figured that was just something we'd have to live with until he became full time. We knew how lucky he was that he was hired straight on and never had to work preload. Well this morning his dispatch sup called him and the 2 other guys who were hired off the street into her office and told them that they were sending 8 TCD drivers back to preload be/c volume is so low. BUT she tells them that they won't be going back to preload. She said they just "found out" that TCD's hired from the street couldn't go to preload. They were considered full time now. Is that true? I have searched online all day. I even read through his entire handbook and I can't find anything solid that talks about it. The crazy thing is she sent him home today too. No work. But said to come early on Monday and talk to a Union Steward and they'd get it all straightened out. Now all of the other drivers are telling my husband that his seniority will jump way up and he'll be over all the TCD drivers and he won't be sent home at all. I just don't see how they could just now "notice". We don't want to get our hopes up, but this could be a big deal! Does anyone have info? Sorry I went on so long here, but I'm desperate!
