    Part-timers, but the ones at my hub get it as long as they get 5 punches, not affected by being on time.

    Scheduled Off counts as a punch.

    They can't keep people here, only 1 in 15 or so stick around for more than 3 months. Just lost 2 last week.[/QUOTE]

    After this retro pay gets paid, a lot of people are going to quit. Everyone is just waiting on it

    Be happy you get any bonus at all.
    At my center we get no bonus AND we're constantly short handed. We've been short handed 90% of the time I've worked here.
    They just don't care. Just work harder, do the job of 3 people, and get injured in the process trying to do too much. Jokes gonna be on them pretty soon though b/c as soon as those retro checks hit, my shift is gonna be a :censored2:ing ghost town. :censored2: 'em

    All depends on the area/region brother. Lots of jobs out here so UPS has to do this bonus crap to keep employees since there are a ton of jobs in the area where you start out at $13 an hour or more. Heck Amazon is right down the road and you start out at $15hr there.
    Area man. Started out at $80 a week here back in May of 2017 and now it got up to $200 a week. Some hubs I heard it got high as $300 a week.

    Kansas City area. I made a thread on it if you search my profile. Its total crap.

    Gonna pimp up my seniority. I laugh every time someone quits, thanks for the pension/healthcare money. Even the people who've been at my hub for 2+ years don't work more than 10 hours a week, stupid.
  11. I'm confused. I don't know the 100% specific breakdowns but you know your time worked goes towards that pension/retirement and even vacation, and if you're only working 10 hours a week I'd be surprised if you even accrue time off.

    Maybe it's different in your local but...I doubt it. Maybe a union guru can chime in and clear up the specifics but if you're working 10 hours a week you ain't retiring from :censored2:.

    I think that's what he's saying. The people that only work 10 hours a week are stupid.

    We need 500 hours but we don't have set pension amounts like some areas.

    So if you only work 500 a year you're going to have a really small pension.
  15. I believe it's $65 if you get full credit
    So if you worked 10 years it's would be worth $650 a month

    I think you should look into advancing your situation.

    I'm a 4th year driver which is the largest increase in progression pay with the new contract. I'm owed over $5,500 at this point. If I don't get it, I will pursue legal action.
