    What about getting hired for a location where there is not a terminal yet. I have an interview on monday in a town where there isn't a ups freight terminal within 3 hours of. I could be working while other guys are layed off. Thats the way it sounds to me:biglaugh:

    The Co. will hire off the street before letting anybody on lay off transfer. This has been proven.

    Thats exactly right - I am laid off from the terminal in Kansas City, saw the terminal in my hometown was hiring and was told that I could not transfer - that I would have to give up all of my seniority with the company and apply as a new hire.

    I take this to mean they don't have Southern Modified Seniority in the contract in the south? Just wondering because I have an upcoming interview with them..I am currently laid off from Yellow

    For layoff purposes - seniority is based on time with the company.
    I live in Wichita and worked out of the terminal in Kansas City. Wichita is not union and Kansas City is. I just received a message on my cell phone stating that since Wichita is not union - I would have to give up my seniority in Kansas City and reapply in Wichita as a new hire. I was also told that if Wichita were union - a transfer would be allowed.
    Good luck with your interview!! Don't know about the Southern Modified Seniority - UPS Freight's contract is not part of the Master Freight Agreement.
