    I agree with you!! For some reason they gave part timers senority when i believe senority should be the day that you become full time!!

    Everybody PART time and FULL time accrues vacation by years of service, it starts at hire date. Not apples and oranges, fact. Nothing wrong with wanting to better ones self, just not at the expense of the man who took the risk before you did. IMO

    Yes, don’t overtly stick that knife in the back of the guy whose spot you cover.

    I meant apples and oranges because I was referring to the drivers but since you want to drag in the part timers to try to make a point then fine, give them the opportunity to bid vacation by company seniority as we’ll seeing as how that would only refer to the dock and office since we don’t employee part time drivers. If a part time dock worker/office employee goes through the driver apprentice program, gets their license, and becomes a full time driver then they should also have the right to bid vacation per company seniority as well regardless of job class, works for me.

    We have 4 part timer drivers at our center. I guess we're special.

    On this subject we can just agree to disagree.

    We have several part time road drivers at my barn. Yup, a 150 mile turn puts lots of roof over your head and lots of groceries on the table.
    Not to mention the extra board drivers that sit at home when it’s slow.

    Many (part timers) were never given the opportunity to take the risk, before you did.

    Regardless, I doubt we're talking significant numbers here...:idunno:

    Wrong Swampy, I started here as part time. And because the driver development program is ongoing and not looking to be halted, significant numbers are possible. Especially at a large hub with a big part time group of employees.

    As this is all speculation and the policy ain't changing it's opinion vs. opinion. Neither of us can lay a claim to being right. Nice try though!
