    From what I was told, now is close to that time where if you were hired one week vs. another it could mean the difference between p/t with benefits and seasonal. (Not that it matters per the August 1st date for benefits I guess...)

    What week does seasonal hire begin?

    Also, where can I find the regional supplements to the master?

    I don't know when seasonal hiring begins but the date for the free period is October 15th.I would guess the hiring would depend on the volume.

    What's a "free period"?

    Thanks, I'm really looking for the addendums/supplements that address regions though; like when people say "oh, that doesn't apply to the northeast".

    The "free period" refers to the cut off date for gaining seniority. After Oct 15th the days worked do not count as days toward becoming a permanent employee, thus making them seasonal.

    Thanks trplnkl. Any idea on where to find the regional supplements to the national contract?

    This site: UPS Contracts and Supplements, has some of the regional supplements to the Master Agreement. Yours may be there.
