    Good money for sure but really hard living.

    Did you use the search feature?

    Basic information can be found in Article 43 of the contract.

    For more specific questions, contact your Local.

    OK, "in general", here's what we went through:

    When wheels are moving, you and partner each get paid mileage, whatever that is now.

    Reference the contract as to "how much 'your' paid weekly"

    Our run was about 4,000 miles a week but we were, with extras, averaging over 6,000.

    You get hourly when your wheels stop, giving the first 2 hours at your longest leg, then 1 1/2 times any other time you stop: fueling, T/As, etc.

    We were away from home, mostly, 6 days.

    Now, listen to this, you and all others: This is what WE experienced. Some will argue with this or give a different perspective or say it ain't so. Go ahead. All I'm saying is, THIS IS WHAT WE EXPERIENCED during 5 years on sleeper.

    You and all others, may be different.

    It depends a lot on the run. I do runs from So. Cal to Iowa. Three days. I make more than in five days in Package.
    I also did a run from So. Cal to Jacksonville,Fl. Biggest paycheck I ever got with UPS. Four day run.

    The real bonus of sleeper is when you pick up extra shifts. That's where the big bucks can come from.
