    In the southern, bids are posted at least twice a year. April and October. Usually we have more than that.

    We have 7:00am, 8:00am, 9:00am, and 10:00am bid runs and at those times there are also "extra" drivers who pick their "extra" run by seniority. A lower seniority guy on a bid run cannot have his run taken by a senior extra guy. We also have dock bids who when forced to go out pick by seniority. At 050 I think we have around 70 positions give or take.

    You have about 60 guys up there in 065? I can definitely see bid destination runs in larger terminals. Do you use the nine hour language for any of the destination bids?

    We don't have that 9 hour rule at 065.

    Good. Rotten foul language as far as I'm concerned,.....designed to create division.
