I have looked the contract up and down and cannot find anywhere that says anything about not being able to get bumped a a bid route driver. Whats the point of using your seniority to get a bid route if you cant use it to keep it? This is all in regards to the fight Im having with the union over their interpretation of the contract. Contract says if your route is temp taken out, you have the right to follow 50% of your work. If it is split 2 or more ways, you may follow it by seniority. They are allowing these bumped drivers to bump anyone below them (bid driver or not), and then the person that gets bumped cannot bump anyone below them with a bid route. We have never done this in our center. Drivers who have had routes taken out temp were always offered work. There are routes that arent bid yet, and always work to be done. I dont understand why they have to fix one problem, then create another. What are my rights if I (and many, many others) disagree with the union on this?
