    I'm in the same boat on the in progression back pay but they can take as long as they need to get my supplement right. That money ain't going anywhere let it keep piling up.

    I'm getting $3.75 per hour + OT with back pay so I can wait til whenever to receive a multi thousand dollar bonus check. I just wish the rumors were true at the beginning of negotiations about going back to a 3 year progression. Imagine the back pay check for that, it'd be something like $11.86 an hour!

    They can only mail back pay checks to addresses that received ballots.

    My backpay check is already over $3000 less taxes and growing pretty rapidly. If we wait til January it’d be about $7000. This contract will have me at top pay in a year and a half from now instead of 3 and a half.

    You missed it. You can get some next contract.

    Same here I don’t understand why no one can give us a date I’m very union forward and I did vote and attend every meeting but still can’t get a straight answer

    Assuming you're serious, there's no date because no one knows when the supplements will be settled.

    Easy there friend. Just taking the hours needed for a years pension credit, 1800 hours/year. The 70 cent raise is like $1,260 a year.
    Yes I know the OT is much better but nobody is getting anywhere close to $30k by 2023!

    You sound like you have a good had on your shoulder. You are just wasting your time explaining this to all those dummies. All they see is dollar signs and get all googly eyed thinking about when will they have more toy money. Bunch of donkeys.

    Checking the grill every 10 minutes doesn't cook the meat any faster. Many union members have NO problem putting this "back pay" on the back burner for as long as it takes to resolve this contract mess. I'd rather strike and be completely broke and lose some of my home luxuries than to sell myself and others down the river over money that UPS is intentionally holding onto to get you to comply with them without question.
     
  16. Try your math again figuring in the additional yearly raises until 2023...not just the 1st $0.70 :teethy:

    I'm still under 5 years so I'm wet behind the ears and starry eyed yet. Filled with grand notions of brotherhood, I will always at least make an attempt to elucidate the matter for the woefully underinformed. But ya know after a while, something something horses, something something make them drink

    This is based on 10 to 20 hours OT. All numbers are averages. I’m in feeders so this is realistic.

    You can make $40 to $50 a week the first year. .70 cents... $40 comes to $2080. $50 comes to $2600.

    2nd year $80 to $100 a week based on the .70+.75 cent... $80 comes to $4160. $100 comes to $5200.

    3rd year $123 to 157 a week based on the
    .70+.75+.80 cents... $123 comes to $6396.
    $157 comes to $8164.

    4th year $173 to $220 a week based on the
    .70+.75+.80+.90 cents... $173 comes to $8996. $220 comes to $11466

    The final you $228 to 290 a week on the
    .70+.75+.80+.90cents+$1... $228 comes
    to $11856. $290 comes to $15106.

    $2080+$4160+$6396+$8996+$11856=
    $33,488 working 10 hours OT a week...

    $2600+$5200+$8164+$11466+$15106=
    $42,536.

    These figures are not added to the vacation weeks. So if you can take a lot of vacation in a year then shave off few grand at the end. This also doesn’t add to the dubs and trips pay for the feeder world...Like I said $30,000 to $40,000 check!
