    I've been working at ups since Nov 14, 2011, I was a seasonal hire. I was kept after busy season. Issued a rehire date of January 3, 2012.

    My question is when am I able to receive my 1$ raise in pay. I'm currently at 9.50/hr. I was told that after three months of work, (90 days) I would receive this and I have currently not. Does my seasonal work not count toward the 90days?

    Seasonal days worked do not count.
    Which days do count and over what period of time varies from one local to the next.
    Best bet is to contact your local and get local language.

    When you say your local what do you mean? I've asked two supervisors at work and neither of them had an answer. Would the union be able to answer this?

    Re: when you say..

    By referring to your local, he's referring to your union.

    No, days worked as a seasonal employee do not count as you were temporarily employed.

    In areas covered under the New England Supplement they DO.

    New England Supplement

    Article 57

    Section 4

    (h) Employees hired for temporary job openings from October 1 through Dec 31 will not accrue seniority during that period and such job openings will not be posted for bid during that period. If returned to work within sixty (60) days after that period, they shall be placed on the seniority list with credit back to their employment dates, provided they have met all other requirements for seniority.

    You need to get a copy of the contract specifically your area local rider or supplement and read the section under seniority and see what it says if you fall under the New England supplement your seniority should be the first day you started which would be Nov 14, 2011.

    You're gonna get it after 90 working days. You'll see it on your paycheck.

    Normally, you are hired at $8.50 per hour and get a dollar raise after 90 days to $9.50, so maybe you already got your dollar raise.

    Or are you getting an extra dollar by being on the Sorter/Preloader Payscale?

    Or maybe your building just starts everyone at $9.50 to reduce turnover.

    Everyone at the facility here started at 9.50. But now I'm curious to see if my seasonal counts. I guess it doesn't since I've been there over 90days. I almost feel like that's not right...more labor out of me for a cheaper rate.

    When we say working days do weekends count?? Lol so confused.

    If weekends don't count and my.seasonal work doesn't count that's a long wait.

    Wow id have to wait all the way until may 7th? I dunno if that's right. I guess my best bet is to call local 17.

    If everyone in your building starts at $9.50, it will be interesting to see if you even get a dollar raise after 90 days. I'm guessing you wont since you already got it. Just fifty cents after completing one year.

    It's honest and hard work that few can do day in and day out. Keep that smart mouth flappin and I'm sure they won't pass you up on the next supervisor job.
