    Only been full time for two years now. It was my understanding that I had to wait 4 years to go top rate per the current contract. Looked at my stub today and noticed I'm at the top rate now!!. Two whole years before my progression date. What should my next move be ?? How could this happen?

    Tell them, because when they find out. They'll be wanting it back. Nothing here is given.

    Send all overages to Inthegame @browncafe. I'll deal directly with UPS to resolve this travesty on your behalf.

    Get a Steward (to witness) and inform the full-time management person of the concern.

    After that, the onus is on them.... to either explain or rectify the problem.

    They can only go back 90 days, to recoup on a monetary error.

    Most times they don't (because of the embarrassment). But, they can.

    Did you have PT time in? They gave new drivers here an "adjusted" seniority date that moved their date back based on how long they had been PT. Though I think you would need to be PT for 10 years or so to have it adjust by 2 years!

    Yes,I had almost 18 yrs part time before going full time. But I don't understand why this was done. I'm also not an air driver.

    I also agree with telling some one in authority, probably your center manager. in front of a good witness-----------------but only do it ONE time.

    It depends on the local contract you are in. In 177 if you are Ft package or feeder driver, it takes four years to make top rate. If you are a mechanic in 177, you will make top rate in two years. Check with your BA.

    Did you cover any full time wash or clerk or any 22.3 jobs that had an 8 hour guarantee?

    I wasnt either but they pushed my date back 2 months from November to September because I worked 11 months pt inside before driving

    The OP has 18 years with the company so shouldn't when they decide to go full time it resort to the contract arraignments regarding top pay progression for that time?

    No, it reverts to the contract when you go FT

    You have to say something. It's the right thing to do. But like someone else previously posted, tell the center manager only ONCE. Bring Stewart with you.

    It would also carry forward from previous contracts any full time progression credit that he earned.

    In addition, I'd be sending a certified and notarized letter to local HR informing them of the overage.

    I've learned in my career that what you think may have been an overpayment or a monetary mistake in your's usually not.
