    Default Boston Metro.

    What's happening at DHL? I've just heard the Boston metroplex has a bid up for 270 drivers. What happened to the over 500 drivers on the seniority list?
    Wow.

    271 bids includes the 10%ers
    under 500 but over 450 drivers on the list (no couriers)
    they say 90 or so out on comp ( that will grow)
    NO managers or sups let go (YET)

    Now basically they have fallen from any believable story and the union was fooled easily.
    Then the union sent a snake oil salesman out to the locals to put the icing on the cake.
    We (DHL Teamsters) are the "red headed step-child" of the union. They gave in for an increase of members only to see the numbers fall with layoffs.
    Great job guys, worst time of my Teamster career.

    DHL,
    I have heard from my brother that Chicago area has even more to be laid off.
    He got back this am from a trip out there. He met last night with an old chum of ours growing up. The chum works for DHL out there. Hate to say this but it looks like the beginning of the end.

    Welcome to TeamstersOnline Teamster Forum DHLTEAMSTER we are glad top have you here. There is no local union by 00 I need you to enter your correct local union number. Just a way to try to keep non union people out.

    Those shifts are at the bottom of the entire bid sheet and I am figuring them to be the last available shifts. They are labeled 10% and I don't know any who would bid them if they had a choice. They will have a start time and work for the week. I see it as an every day casual with all the bennies and such. That is all.

    so if a guy is number 250 and there are 270 routes is he a ten percenter and can he bid? Or are the last ten percent of the routes on the bid labeled ten percent routes?

    Monday begins the bid for the BOS meto (3) stations.
    271 posted shifts including 10 % ers.
    Not nearly enough PTers to perform work planned so they will push the layoffs to work split shift, "to keep them working"
    This is for NED,NES ans BOS all LU25 stations under the DHL national.
    1-100 bid on Monday.
    Have a few choices ready but don't expect them to give any answers.
