Section 8. SENIORITY

There shall be separate seniority lists by classification, namely:

A list for tractor-trailer feeder drivers; a list for delivery drivers; a list for full-time combination employees; (where there are both fulltime and part-time car washers in an area) a list for full-time car washers, a list for regular part-time employees (e.g. loaders/unloaders, sorters, preloaders, clerks and car washers). When a full-time employee moves from one (1) seniority list to another separate seniority list within the same classification, then the seniority date for layoff, rehire, and bidding, shall be the classification seniority date. When an employee moves from one (1) seniority list to another separate seniority list, then the seniority date for layoff, rehire, and bidding, if appropriately on the list to which they transferred, shall be the date that they transferred to the new position. All other benefits to apply as per Company seniority. Effective August 1, 1993, an employee who moves from one full-time seniority list to a different full-time seniority list or from one part-time seniority list to a different part-time seniority list because of a medically certified reason shall be dove-tailed into the appropriate seniority list.

  1. Full-time and part-time employees hold separate seniority. Feeder drivers enjoy separate seniority for operational purposes. Center/Sort operation seniority prevails for full-time and part-time employees. Drivers laid off from feeder work have the right to return according to order of layoff.
  2. Operating Center Seniority shall control except as otherwise provided in this Rider. Employees shall work off separate seniority lists for each operating center under this Agreement. Package Drivers in multiple center buildings shall have the right to bid any vacancy in any other center within their building. The original vacancy and the next four (4) openings created will begin and end the process of multiple center bidding. At this point any remaining vacancy resulting from the original bid shall be bid in accordance with JC 28 Rider, Article 1 Section 4.

The successful bidder shall be dovetailed into the new center seniority list and must remain in the new center for six (6) months.

The successful bidders moving to the new centers release their rights to their selected vacation if it causes excess time off during the current vacation year. All other benefits are to apply as per Company seniority.

Vacancies created by back-up feeder drivers will be excluded from the crossover bidding process.

In buildings with multiple centers, the Company shall have the right to balance the staffing between the centers. The permanent movement of drivers will be offered first to the list of unassigned drivers in seniority order in the overstaffed center(s) and then drivers will be forced from the bottom of the same unassigned driver list(s). Only those drivers who attain package car seniority after ratification may be forced to another center. Any driver forced to another Center shall have the right to return to his/her original Center prior to any New Hire for the next six (6) months.

  1. Full-time employees who are laid off in a building that contains more than one (1) operating center shall be allowed to exercise their classification seniority to replace the least senior employee within the same classification within any operational center in such building.

After a seniority package driver has been laid off at least five (5) days within the calendar year, and unable to drive in another center, he may elect to displace the least senior part-time employee(s) in the building in which he has seniority. If the employee elects to perform part-time work, he may choose to displace one (1) or two (2) part-time employees, if available. In any case, the employees must be qualified to perform the work, have more Company seniority than the displaced employee(s), and if it is a temporary layoff (less than 5 working days), be available for his next regularly scheduled shift. Any laid off driver choosing to perform part-time work shall receive the part-time daily guarantee and be paid the appropriate part-time wage rate in accordance with his company seniority but maintain their full-time benefits for all other purposes.

  1. The Employer recognizes that the principles of seniority shall be given prime consideration for extra work.
  2. Extra employees without seniority shall not work an overtime shift when regulars are available. This includes Saturday, Sunday and Holiday work.
  3. All employees with seniority standing shall be given an opportunity for preferential job assignments; provided, such employees are able to do the work. If any dispute arises, as to whether the person is qualified to do the work or handle equipment, the Company shall grant the employee a trial period under supervision to determine their qualification. If judged to be not qualified for the job, the Company will provide the employee with another opportunity to meet the qualification.
  4. Employees failing to call or report to work as scheduled will be given seventy-two (72) hour notice to their last known address or by a verified telephone call exclusive of Saturday, Sunday or Holidays. If the employee fails to report to work within the seventy-two (72) hours, a notice by registered mail, or certified mail will be sent to the employee and the Union removing them from the seniority list, thus terminating their employment.
  5. An employee disabled due to illness, disease/or injury shall not lose seniority for three (3) years from date of disability. Also, the reasonableness of continuing such seniority may be arbitrated should same extend beyond three (3) years.
  6. Full-time car washers will be dove-tailed by Company seniority onto the building sign-up sheets in accordance with Article 3, Section 1B (3) of the JC28 Sort Addendum for the purpose of advancing to full-time package driver work.

    2. Date of Interview
    3. Date of Application
    4. Drawing of Lots

JURISDICTIONAL TRANSFER

Employees requesting in writing to the Company and Union to transfer from one building to another within the Local’s jurisdiction for permanent job vacancies or openings, within their classification, will be placed on a list in seniority order. Such transfers shall be end-tailed to the bottom of the new respective seniority list for the purpose of job bidding, vacation selection, and layoff. The transferee releases their rights to their selected vacations if it causes excess time off during the year of the transfer.

This transfer language applies to Locals 174 and 313 and any other Local that signs a letter of acceptance with the Company.
