    Ok , so first off I was hired June 10 , 2013. I started at $8.50 and after 3 months got a $1 raise to $9.50. I worked at $9.50 until the contract retro pay kicked in and was bumped up to $10. My first question is with the Aug. 1st contract in 2013 making everyone start at $10, what happened to my $1 raise. I just got a 50 cent raise at my year, and am getting paid 10.50 right now . My Union Steward has been on vacation and my center manager doesn't have a clue , so naturally I figured ask you fine folks.

    They also overpaid me on my retro check by 530 apparently haha, and basically want my next 4 checks... Cool UPS Cool

    I started almost a month before you. I'm at $10.50 an hour too. I guess it's because we were in progression before the new contract went into effect.

    Well in my situation with being overpaid , the reason I was overpaid was because they paid my retro check like i was working at 8.50 so i got 600-700 hours with a 1.50 rate.... but if the dollar raise never happened, i shouldn't owe them jack . It's a confusing situation , but something doesn't seem right either way .

    $10.00/hr starting pay and another $1.00/hr either working preload or you are in a sorting position. Yeah that does happen.

    $10.50 ($11.50 skilled/preload) is the correct pay for a 1 year employee. There was no catch up raise for current employees even though they raised the starting pay.

    The good news is you'll get a 70 cent raise on August 1st. $8.50 to $11.20 in 14 months ain't too bad.

    Thanks for the clarification , and ya being at $11.20 from $8.50 barely over a year is very nice. So I get a 70 cent raise because I made seniority before the Aug. 1 contract ? Do the new hires get a raise after 3 months anymore , or just a year ?

    You do not receive the $.70 contract raise until you complete progression. No more 90 day $1.00 raise. That $1.50 increase in starting pay is really only worth $.50.
