    Non of my On Roads want to leave the office. It's actually a fight amongst themselves trying to get the other to go out.

    In the Central, you can sign all the bids you want.

    But, if the bid comes down (at the proper time) and you are the high seniority

    person.... it's yours. There is no passing at that point.

    Not true here.

    We've had many drivers not like their new route within the first week and just bid back on theirs when the bid was posted.

    Correct, but, at least here, you can bid back to your original bid when it's posted.

    Happens all the time, and this uses 2 of the 3 yearly bids.

    If he does it again, he is stuck on the new bid. None left to bid back to his job.

    And this 3 bid limit does not apply to feeders.

    They use to allow driver to return to their old route as long as it had not been posted yet. They finally stopped it because so many drivers would run the route for a week and go back to their old route. It would take almost 2 months till someone stayed on it.

    Same here. Plus the biannual regular bid. It’s a bidding frenzy!
    Like Oprah!
    And you get a bid!
    And you get a bid!

    You act like it passed. Let's wait hopefully 705 and 710 hold strong on a no vote and hit both thresholds. Laguna is laying back wanting us to have the same bad contract. I want to do 11 more years not 16 more and that would cost me 1,100 a month. 13,300 a year and if I did 29 years but not 30 it would cost me 700 a Month and 8400 a year. Kinda of hard to pass that up but how long would I live and quality of life after 30 years full time and my part time years . Vote nada

    I should have clarified, what I was talking about.

    There is a JAC decision/interp (from years ago) that addressed this very issue.

    It was to prevent things like this:

    The JAC decision/interp was pre-22.3.... but could be applied to them now, as it

    was a case about the package car classification. As you pointed out, it doesn't apply

    to feeders. If they allow it in your area, I would document that.

    I hadn't seen this, but we have never been denied bidding back a previous bid once it was posted.

    Doesn't happen all the time, but has happened 3 or 4 times in the last 10 years.
