    Richard Harrow Would you pay a dime to see this?

    Close. You had the numbers backwards. Six cents raise every forty years.

    Seems about right. I started in 2007 at $8.50/hr, and apparently so didn't people who started in the '90's.

    Yep. Was a pretty fat looking rate posted on my late 90s high school's job board. Minimum wage was $5.15 then. $4.25 for employees under 20 in their first 90 days.

    Did have to look up the numbers to remember :

    $.40 8/1/16
    $.40 2/1/17
    $.50 8/17/17
    $.50 2/1/18

    Haha, imagine $4.25/hr? Drivers now make that in 7 minutes not counting full benefits.

    That's the old contract.

    New deal sucks for package handlers as far as raises go. $0.50/yr on your seniority date if you were hired after 8/1/2013.

    Start $11.00 / $10.00
    Seniority plus (1) year $11.50 / $10.50
    Seniority plus (2) years $12.00 / $11.00
    Seniority plus (3) years $13.00 / $12.00
    Seniority plus (4) years $13.50 / $12.50

    Skilled / unskilled

    You're talking about progression not general wage increases.

    Those are the wage increases for employees who reached seniority after the new contract took effect. There are no other increases for newer part timers.

    If you were hired after August 1,2013 you will only get the progression increases on your anniversary date. You will not get the general wage increases in the contract. The employees who have a seniority date before August 1,2013 will get the general wage increases. The starting pay for new employees hired after August 1,2013 is higher, and that is the reason they don't get the general wage increases.

    So at year three you get a dollar raise instead of 50 cents?

    Starting rate is higher than it used to be but all employees below the new starting rate were bumped up to it I believe so new employees are still getting a lot less for raises annually.

    Yes, I copied that from the master agreement. Not sure if any locals are different, mine follows it like that for raises as well.

    GetTacosOrDieTrying What's in the box!!!!!?

    Year one=.50
    Year two=.50
    Year three=1.00
    Year four =.50

    Is the $1.00 a split raise?
