Poor Swanson! No MRA, no attendance bonus, has to run the gauntlet in Compton, gets an insultingly low COLA, but that's not all... Now he has to take a side-gig pulling a rickshaw.

I guess the west is only the best, if you are a steward.

The article didn't make that point atleast not clearly. I've never heard of ups paying workers more than what is collectively bargained. Most of us are more familiar with ups trying to get out of paying workers fairly. That was why I asked about union involvement. UPS can do what they like if its above and beyond.

Really? In many many places in the country, part-timers have been getting this extra pay. Especially in the last year it seems like. It frequently comes up on these boards.

Thats great for them... certainly not here.
I come here in spurts... quite often then not for awhile. I'm prbly a little behind ups current events... and I'm much closer to the end of FT so I prbly overlook some topics.
