    Hiring CDL A feeder drivers.

    Question guys. In this weekend's Philly Inquirer, there was a classified ad for Full-time CDL "A" tractor trailer drivers for the Willow Grove about an hour from the Philadelphia regional air facility. While initially thinking this was great as it suggests more volume, I then wondered why the position wouldn't have been snapped up by a driver with seniority rights to train for the positions. Does it suggest that high seniority drivers might not be interested in the move to feeders? Granted, the position is a night job with weekends off but I had always thought that many of the package drivers would happily trade the rigors of delivery for a less physical job. Beyond that, wouldn't the Teamsters prefer to fill these opening from within? Comments?
