    Hi I'm a pt employee that started about 5 years ago. Our wages recently increased to $13.00 (15.00 in our region) and the new language scares me into thinking I won't receive the 70c gwi since my wages had been increased prior to this contract. Any insight would be helpful. I attached a picture of what I'm referencing.

    You get the higher of the starting rate or the 70 cents added to what your hourly is now.

    If you’re currently making $12.30 or less you’re getting $13.

    If you’re making $12.31+ you’re getting $13.01+

    It’s not that hard.

    In our region we got our pay moved up to 15$ in February 2018 before contract talks. So I'm making 15$. Just wanted to be clear with the new contract that the amount I made before wasnt "redlisted" predating the contract.

    Hey I have a similar question. I'm a PT employee who was making $12.00 an hour on August 1 2018. I hit my 3 year seniority in October 2018 and received a $1 raise putting me at $13. Today I checked my paystub and i'm still at $13.00 an hour. Should I have gotten the .70 gwi or no because I was making 12 on august 1?

    No $13 would have gone into effect Aug 1. So your retro is from Aug 1 through Oct when you got your raise.

    So I was also making 12 an hour before August 1st 2018. My anniversary is on February. I got my 1$ raise February of 2019 which made it to $13 an hour. I’m guessing I won’t be getting the .70 cent gwi correct?
    So my retro would be from August 1st to February?
    I’m also an air driver and since air drivers got raises to $16. Do I also get a retro for that?

    Yep 3-5 year employees can make the exact same as a new hire under this new contract depending on when they started. I think its the first time since the freaking 70s that this was possible since thats when everyone made the same amount and got no raises. "Best contract ever" tho.

    When a whole lot of new hires are now making the same as 3-4 year veterans, this is a defacto demotion for the veterans. The same goes for when a minimum wage increase happens. Those who have earned their wage increases the hard way find themselves equal to the new hires. Naturally the new hires won't object, and they probably think it's fair.

    It really sucks when a newbie makes the same as a 4 year part timer. It really just pisses me off, I voted no but union still passed this “great contract ever”. Bs. At least I’m a PT air driver but now I’m more motivated to go full time. Unless I get tired of UPS’s. Bull crap.
