Appeal from the Order of the Unemployment Compensation Board of Review in case of In Re: Claim of Robert E. Wilson, No. B-185471.
Marion B. Cocose, with her Marian E. Frankston, for petitioner.
Charles Hasson, Associate Counsel, for respondent.
Judges Craig, MacPhail and Doyle, sitting as a panel of three. Opinion by Judge Craig.
Claimant Robert Wilson, last employed as a truck driver by the S & S Trucking Company, questions a denial of benefits by the Unemployment Compensation Board of Review, affirming a referee's decision that he was ineligible because he voluntarily terminated his employment without cause of a necessitous and compelling nature.*fn1
Dissatisfied with job duties which required that he unload heavy furniture without assistance, the claimant did not report back to work after returning the truck to his employer's premises at the end of a nine-day trip.

Unemployment Compensation Board of Review, 475 Pa. 547, 381 A.2d 132 (1977), Aluminum Company of America v. Unemployment Compensation Board of Review, 15 Pa. Commonwealth Ct. 78, 324 A.2d 854 (1974), and made no reasonable effort to preserve his
employment status, Stacy v. Unemployment Compensation Board of Review, 43 Pa. Commonwealth Ct. 355, 402 A.2d 330 (1979), thus disqualifying him from eligibility. Tuono v. Unemployment Compensation Board of Review, 54 Pa. Commonwealth Ct. 583, 422 A.2d 240 (1980).
Determining that there is ample evidence to support the board's findings and ascertaining no errors of law, we affirm. Ounan v. Unemployment Compensation Board of Review, 48 Pa. Commonwealth Ct. 432, 409 A.2d 972 (1980).
