    I am having major payroll issues that have been going on since November..No one in my local will help me and all the shop stewards keep telling me to talk to my payroll lady. I have talked to everyone in my local with really no help. I was told a grievance would be filed but have heard nothing back yet.

    ​go to your shop steward Monday morning and file a grievance. Period

    This. Nothing will fix your pay or company screwup quicker then a grievance; it will fly up the management ranks and when it hits the "top", the crap will roll down hill with much fury. It will be fixed.

    Payroll errors must be corrected by the next pay period or penalty pay will be assessed. You need to file the grievance(s) yourself---do not rely on anyone else to do it for you. You will need copies of your paystubs with the errors highlighted---it may help to type up a separate form listing each pay advice date and the error(s) on that date. Submit those along with the grievance to your shop steward, who will sign the grievance and present it to your mgt team. Good luck.

    First question are you a TEMP or a permanent UPS employee??? You say your a TEMP...... Temp get paid different rates than permanent employees.

    I am a permanent ups employee, before i started temp driving i was a part time unloader. I was also told they couldnt use temps anymore after Jan 11th(per a deal struck with whoever) but they are still using me on my own route. I am also being told I will only receive helper pay after jan 11th even though i do my own route by myself

    This doesn't sound right....something isn't adding up. Management can't just make calls like this willy-nilly....there's got to be more to it...

    It's immensely shady.. a cover driver in January only receiving helper pay? Joeskyline needs to be calling out his local's officers at the next union meeting and documenting everything so he'll get every nickel that's owed to him.

    I too have payroll issue I have been trying to get resolved, I am now going through labor standards in my home state to get back pay they refuse to pay me. You need documentation for this, but at least it can't be used as a bargaining chip between the company and the union. That and I am pretty sure the Company doesn't want the state looking around for other issues.

    Did you wait for someone to hold your hand and guide you through the process or did you take the initiative by working to resolve the issue yourself?
