This has been going around for the last month or so and is now gaining momentum. Has anyone out there heard about UPS buying out members that were hired before 1982. I have heard 5,000 dollars a year for every year of service for full timers and 2500 dollars for every year of service for part timers. I have also heard that Art 22.3 and drivers who were once part time, that we would get full time credit for all years served. Ex. I have been full time, 13 years and Part time 22 years. Total would be 3500 dollars a month since we get 100 dollars a year for every year of service. BTW, we wouldn't get both. It is either or...or nothing...if this is all just a rumor. I would be very interested in what you have heard out in your hub and centers. By the way, our BA had heard about the buy out and said it is suppose to be "Sweet." Whatever that means.
