    I like to check out other local's websites and supplements to compare to my local's and I noticed that Local 804 has an article about 150 new 22.3s on their homepage. They are preload/helper and will pay $30.64/hr. Wow! The more I learn about 804 the more I'm convinced that they have one of the better locals in the country. Does anyone else have 22.3s like that? Or even 22.3s that pay that well?

    And does any of our 804 members know that cutie they have pictured on there that's signing a bid sheet? :childish:

    22.3's do not make $30.64/hr.

    At the end of their four year progression they will.

    At the end of contract everywhere, 22.3 gets $30.64 cola included.

    I could live off of $30.64/hr.

    cosmo1 Just another internet hooligan.

    I'm not sure you would be much of a "helper", and I'm positive you couldn't work the pre-load.

    Yeah, that "read PAL and load accordingly" is some real tough stuff.

    Some of our higher seniority drivers, as well as some lower, would be all over a 22.3 like that. Hell, I'd work the preload if I were next to the girl in the article. And if I were single. :wink2:

    Does anywhere else have year around helpers? This is going to cut into new driver positions.

    Maybe but in many cases in those buildings its basically like the tradeoff is a full-time package job for a 22.3.

    Maybe in the BOG, with the belt running half-speed and only loading one truck.........

    I had to load my own truck out of the cages one holiday (quarter load) and remember thinking this would suck doing 4 trucks with them all having full loads.
