I've been a preloader for 4 months and joined the union.. At what point have I achieved seniority?
Generally when you pass your probationary period.
So the probation period was 30 days right?
Its 30 days where I am. I'm coming up on my 30 days very soon.
Do you know if I can transfer to another hub before I've been there for a year?
We can process your transfer once we receive certified original pics of hannah and her banana.
It took 4 months to get 30 working days in?
EDIT: never mind...I forgot about peak (free) period.
@Hannah-banana , how’d you get this name? Me and @burrheadd might need some photos.....
In some areas, when you gain seniority, your seniority date reverts back to your hire date.
See if this is true in your supplement and make sure HR doesn't screw this up.
Don't discussion the issue of seniority with any of your bosses or co-workers because they just may decide to see that you are laid off just before your 30...just to mess with you.
The only person you should discuss this with would be a union steward or a BA.
He doesn't post much, so it might take a while for a response.
I didn't know that peak doesn't count! What dates are the official peak period?
Once you receive your ups socks
do you have union dues come out twice a month
Not yet. I put in my paperwork a month ago and haven't seen any dues taken from my checks yet. I called the union hall today to check in it.. Waiting for a call back..
I'm not sure that union dues coming out of her check is an indicator of seniority. If you'll recall, they took union dues out of the seasonal workers and then laid them off after peak.
Seeing her name on the seniority list might be an indicator but the company doesn't update the seniority list very often AND when they do update they usually screw it up. See post #10.
30 working days here
After you have thirty days in that aren't seasonal, unless they didn't count you as a seasonal employee. call the local union and ask if you are a member yet. They should be able to find out in a few key strokes.
