    Anyone heard anything about the raise Feb 1st? A few months back there were rumors going around here that we wouldnt get it because of healthcare or something...So I just wanted to know what was going on :peaceful:

    No one has said anything here in 0400. As far as I know we will be getting it.

    If it would help with the layoffs I would give back some of my pay to help my fellow drivers/hub...what do you all think of this?

    That raise is in the contract and any changes would have to be negotiated with the union and maybe even approved by the rank and file.

    But it wouldn't help with the lay offs.

    Im a steward, and this question came up during the summer. Both UPS n your local would all have to be in agreement for this to happen. If it did, it would go into your pension only. As of now everything will stay the same, Ck with your BA.
