The UPS depot by me is hiring part time package handlers, however, I read the Central Supplemental contract and it states that UPS can hire package handlers between May and September to cover package handlers on vacation and those hired would be temporary workers...meaning their time would NOT be counted towards seniority. If this is true then UPS is trying to pull a fast one in my opinion. I would love to work for UPS but not if I would gain any seniority and then of course after September comes the dreaded holiday season where you would not gain seniority during that time either. I have checked their website regularly since January and this is the first time my home center is hiring this year. It leads me to believe that they only want temporary workers and are not looking to hire permanent package handlers. Am I wrong to think this is unfair ? Its bad enough one would have to wait a year before receiving benefits but the way UPS is running things, at least in Michigan, getting seniority is next to impossible. Any thoughts ?
