    So I was told by management that I'm being promoted to full time driver. As expected, when I got near my 40 days they took me off the road. Now I'm waiting for them to schedule this conference call. They keep stalling and there doesn't seem to be any urgency. Meanwhile, I haven't worked in weeks and many of my days are dropping off.
    My question is- after I have this call am I officially in or will they still be counting my days until I hit 40? My concern is that after Oct. 15th I'll be frozen out.

    You should talk to your steward or business agent. You are either qualified or not, waiting for the conference call is bs.

    Ask your supervisor first. Then call Stewart.

    I know but if I technically haven't worked my 40 days in a 70 day period can they hold that over my head?

    The conference call is just a formality. You make book when you work your 40.

    Apparently it's something new they are doing.

    For the new drivers. I've never seen so much BS in my entire career. They also want them to get a sales lead.

    I tell the new guys to tell them that I got enough sales for them in the late 90s. If they don't accept that, I want them back.

    At our center, when the last couple kids made senority they had a conference call, kinda like a little graduation they claimed. Gave them something to hang around their neck.

    But they don't let them sink or swim any more.
  19. If they took you off the road as you expected during summer vacations, I would not be waiting for a conference call. Hopefully you get another shot at peak.
