I like to be the first to say.... Welcome National LTL. Welcome to our wonderful world of FedEx Freight.
Great I'm gonna be getting screwed by people who've only been with national for a few years only because they got to go to the road before me. Maybe time to look for a new job.

thers nothing official about senority
everyones just guessing
But if you read the handbook, theres no dovetailing, if you chose to move to follow freight you keep your co senority
but lose your job class senority
so at this point its anybodies guess what there going to do
FYI alot of people at freight, local and line have 15 yrs plus senority
good luck !!!!!
