    how about this then since there are 105 views no comments, does a starting rate of $13/hr $.25 raise after 3 months then 3 $0.50 raises in two and half years followed by top rate of after 30 months sound right anyone?

    Yup. Except the first raise will come after 90 working days, roughly 4.5 months.

    Actually, it was $15hr starting wage when I started with UPS Canada 4 years, ago., after 90 days an extra dollar.

    Is your contract national or will the maritimes have their own?

    It's a National Teamster Contract, however some regions might be paying more than the contracts.
    Alberta UPS has done it, and might be doing it again as the economy is booming here, again.
    (They couldn't keep anyone hired, because other jobs with more pay and less stress are plentyful).

    I'm from Saskatchewan and we have retention bonuses for our FT drivers that have not hit full rate. They get bonus on their cheque if they don't call in or no lates

    The booming economy is a bit of an excuse, new hires know what the pay scale is when they agree to be hired Around here most new employees quit because they are constantly being put in a bad situation, or are fed way too much forced OT. Very few quit because of the money.

    I'm sure the Maritimes will be great until the honeymoon wears off, then they will level off with the rest of us Canucks

    By using the word "might" I'm forced to assume you have no idea what your talking about. Which is true, yet somehow you keep on posting. Actual knowledge? Who needs that, when white noise is just as valuable.

    Listen , you little bugger, the average wage in AB is over $28/hr.
    You think UPS can hire at $15/hr ?

    Yup. UPS didn't have a problem hiring people at $15 in Alberta.

    Anyway, employment numbers show the average wage in Alberta to be $24.84 in 2011, 50 cents more in Edmonton. So once again, quit making things up.

    To be honest Klein I have no clue. I couldn't even pretend to come up with the answer without talking to management or HR. However, without talking to HR or management you couldn't possible have a clue either. And since you're 3ish years removed from the situation your rational may be wrong to the point of being absurd.

    By the way, doesn't it seem foolish to be speaking on the current contract when you've never worked under it? I can't imagine you've spend hours studying something that doesn't and will never have any impact on you.

    Why not DS ? Free hotel, food allowance and even a free rental car.
    And besides that - it could be a way into managment, too .
    Like on on car sup to the least.

    Any idea what package cars we are going to be getting in Atlantic Canada? Also I was told that our starting rate would be $13.75/hr with a top rate of $28.11/hr after 39 months. FT Driver position!

    Thanks for the welcome. I have gotten a lot of info from these forums. They told us that the DIADs are the newest version available but they never commented on the trucks.
