I have to respectfully disagree at my hub the company and union has to be diligently constantly reminded to put up to bid 22.3 after there left vacant.
I didn't see anything in the contract protecting the number of 22.3 jobs we have.
The problem is, it wasn't honored in the past in many locals. my center has had three 22.3 retired and not replaced in the last 6 years. It's been grieved, fought and lost.
The 22.3 screwed us by not demanding their 8 hour and would cut and run the moment a part time air driver was there to take the work. So we couldn't justify the full time position because those 22.3 idiots rarely worked full time. UPS finds ways to not justify keeping s 22.3 simply by tempting them with hours off.
New England?I keep breaking my promise to not post here anymore.
This doesnt "say" that there wont be any more new 22.3 opportunities but the mass push to create cheap driving positions will probably be a tsunami, brushing 22.3 jobs to the rear of the line as far as possible.
It quacks like a duck.
At least your local was honest with you. Our ba said the 22.4s will absolutely not take the place of 22.3 opportunities. I can only go by the language written. I presume the proposed language is the same as the final version? I'll default to that.
It's been a while but the last time I saw the national grievance docket the game of hide the peanut (22.3 jobs being "moved" to another location) was prevalent. Has this been fixed or still ongoing?
