I recently transferred as a part-time employee of 4 years from Ky to UT. I must say it's not easy, but it is possible. The only transfer that UPS approves is an educational transfer. He just has to enroll in school, and write a cover letter stating why he feels that he needs to transfer FOR SCHOOL. He will lose building seniority and maintain his company seniority. He will keep his pay, but may lose a dollar depending on whether his job is "skilled," (meaning that he's a sorter, irregs, or something similar that he had to take a test for) but if he takes the sort test at his new location he can get his dollar raise back. He'll keep his vacations and benefits as well. If you ask me, it would be worth it for him to enroll in a couple of classes (he only needs to be enrolled in one) just so he can transfer. Good luck, and I hope everything works out.
