    I am a part time air exception driver and a VCD.
    I work preload, deliver air whenever needed and also drive every Saturday. I've been with UPS for about a year and a half. Also drove peak last two seasons. My question is am I still on the 2 year pay progression for air driver even though I am still considered a part timer? If this is correct then I would assume I should be getting a pay raise soon.

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    Air driver is not your primary job so, no, you are not in the 2 yr progression.

    Doesn't matter. 2 year air rate progression starts from the first day you run code 5E air exception. I went to top rate for air while a preloader.

    Been running air long enough to see any of the incremental pay bumps on the way to top rate?

    Then you should be receiving your 12 month raise in March. Then the 18 month raise and finally top rate after 24 months.

    Read Article 40 in your contract. IIRC; if you work as an air driver at least once per week, you earn 1 (one) weeks credit towards the air driver progression.

    Never heard that. We gain seniority for the time spent being qualified regardless have hours worked.
