I know part timers can transfer if schooling is involved. What about Article 22 full timers?
Tups I just now seen that you are in New England and want to go to Texas, the proposal we submitetd which was based on the western area states that you can only transfer in your area subliment. Maybe one day after we get area transfers in across the nation we can work on nationwide tranfers.
Let's get this ball rolling! When I first started they wouldn't even rehire. It's sooo much closer! Let me keep my pay and vacations. I'll start from the bottom as far as in house seniority goes. I need out of here!!!!
I agree. If a driver is willing to lose seniority what is the big deal with the company. It is up to the driver if he wants to lose all the perks as long as it doesnt affect his pay and vacations.As of right now there are no transfer options for full time drivers at least with the exception of educational transfers and hardship transfers. And still those hardship transfers are very difficult to work out. I have been looking into transferring from New England to Texas and have not found any way to do it. And to me, it seems to be ridiculous to not be able to make a transfer inside the company. Plus if a driver wanted to go to another center, he'd have to jump through all kinds of hoops to do it. You'd have to quit your current position, and apply as a walk in at the new center. There is no guarantee you'd get in either. And what to me seems like the most ridiculous part of all this, UPS being a multi billion dollar company will have you turn in whatever current uniforms you have when you quit, and you will need to be issued new ones when you get the new job, AND you will need to go through driver orientation all over again. I can't understand that. I know the job, and it is the same everywhere. So why spend the time and money to put a trained driver through training to do the same thing he is doing now, to train him in the same way he already knows. I could live with losing seniority in the new building and going to the bottom of the driver list to become the center bitch in the new building, but I fail to understand the reasons why UPS would make a driver quit, get re-hired, start at the bottom of the pay scale ( also stupid ), turn in old uniforms, and need to be re-trained. I have been driving for 2 years, and do a pretty good job everyday. But UPS makes some pretty stupid policies for such a huge company.
