Ok so have been with ups for over 3 years my first year I started out as a preloader and I have been an air exception driver for the past 2 years. I have been covering a pm air route for the last year and a half because the driver has been on military leave. Now he is coming back and my supervisor said I would go back to preload. But I am at top pay already at $26.14 an hour for air driver. My preload pay is only 13.70. So my question is what happens to me I cannot survive off 13.70 on the preload and take care of my family. I have heard that if I go back to preload I will still get payed my top pay. And I have also heard that once you are on a route for 30 consecutive days then that becomes yours. I really appreciate any suggestions or help.
