    by my calculations no COLA again

    should be 3 cents, but

    "These increases shall only be payable if they equal five cents ($.05) in a year"

    It has already been announced that there will be a .12 cent Cola raise this August.

    There are already two other threads on this topic.

    We are getting 12 cents on August 1 based on the CPI-W Index which increased 4.1 percent. Not to be confused with the other CPI Index you may have seen in the news, that only increased 3.6 percent.

    Isn't there a mechanism that alerts you if you are starting a similar thread? I have seen it, I swear.

    I just started a new thread on ups discussions regarding texting while driving and didn't get any message about having been prior ones. I'm sure there were but I started a new one anyway. Rules be dammed - new threads are fun.

    Take what you can get. I've been with Parcel since 89 and this is only the 3'rd cola i've gotton. $.38 in 22 years isn't going to make you rich but every little bit helps. Plus if the buzz about capping new employees is correct you can bet it won't include a cola. Only those of us here now will be grandfathered in. Also in the machinists contract part timers don't get cola's now. I don't know if the teamsters are like that also.
