    bleedinbrown58 ahhh....the mouth breathers

    Screenshot_2016-09-07-16-08-43.png I don't see anything in the ad about this being a seasonal or peak package handler position...as the ad goes on about the attractive benefits package available for PTers, and so forth.

    So, is UPS now offering permanent PT employees paid weekly bonuses for showing up to work? lol

    Won't that be funny if they give it to all the newbies and not the senior people.

    They will try that until it gets grieved and then no one will get the bonus!

    I am sure that is the idea. $75 is an extra 7 1/2 hours of work.

    Hypothetically, being there's nothing listed in the contract regarding PT bonuses....I wonder if we could grieve that.

    Yes, I get an extra 125 per week just to show up. I'm dead serious

    Probably doesn't help that the economy has been improving and contracts continue to get worse and worse for PTers. Can see how it might have lost some additional appeal over the past few years.

    A few years ago UPS advertised on the radio for Peak seasonal workers making $15/hr. Everyone hired was permanent at $10/hr.

    Hope they do it where I am. Loaders don't stay and we're massively short on temp drivers.

    The loophole excuse probably being that you do make that after your first five hours! Wink wink.

    I work in a major hub in my state and the turnover rate here is ridiculous. I know I'm very new, but they always put the brand new ones on the pick next to mine (I guess it's the beginner preload trucks), and I swear I've seen no less than 10 people quit the first or second day. One even asked where the bathroom was and never came back lol

    The union loves turnover. Fees keep coming in.

    Is that the reason for the low wages and no representation?

    That, and lack of voting.

    I believe him. When I first started out PT I was offered a driving job in a VERY rural part of the state and the job came with a $250 a week bonus just for going there. It was tempting to take it but it wasn't the kind of place I wanted to live so someone else from our center took it

    What ever it was you were offered was probably a travel incentive.

    Being paid a bonus for new hires for showing up every day would be grieved in a heartbeat.

    Why would I even bother to make that up?


    Go to ups jobs and search for shrewsbury, mass. The bonus is mentioned in the first sentence

    Every seniority, permanent employee in your building should be filing for that money. Retroactively.



    Unless, of course, you are seasonal.
