    How do we figure out if were getting one? Who is responsible for telling us if were going to receive one? In my thirteen years at ups I have only received one cola raise of seven cents.

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    COLA raises are based on the CPI.

    You should not expect to get one any time soon.

    Cherry cola is damn good, but it costs a lot more than 7 cents!

    Mexican coke is also fantastic.

    Love me some Cola

    I love going places, asking "do you have coca cola?"
    "No, sorry, is Pepsi ok?"
    "No.."

    Any cola raises will go automatically into either the pension or health care fund. It will never make it to your paycheck so don't even think about it.

    Asking about a "cola raise" is a legitimate question.


    Maybe....

    @anHOURover could explain all the details.

    Many years ago the Government changed the way they calculate COLA. They took out some of the essentials in the calculation.
