Did the driver helper pay rate change with the new contract? Where can I find this info?
1. I have no idea.
2. The contract is online at Teamster.org and TDU.org
No, it's $15.20 this peak just like last peak. It goes up to $15.50 2015 and 2016, then goes go $15.80, peak of 2017.
Yes rates went up. Central Art 19 Sec 7 sets helper rate at 80% of starting rate for FT's which raises the pay rate from $12.88 to $15. Most likely every supplement mimics this language in some fashion.
Some only pay $8.50 per hour....
Like a new hire part-time employee.
In my local, they couldn't get part-timers with seniority to help because it was a pay cut.
I thought that too.....Helper pay is only 15.88/hr...my preload rate is higher. But I went out as a helper last week....and was paid my preload OT rate for the day. Sounds good to me!
Helper pay here was $10/hr my last peak.
Seasonal xmas helpers in my local only get 8/hr.
Maybe it was only $8.00, but preloaders got the same.
Wanna be my Xmas helper?
You, my friend, couldn't even begin to get me back out there in brown. And that's even if they offered me enough to think about it!
Besides, no beer in the truck.
I may come back as a helper for Peak 2019. It would be so nice to have zero pressure. We are limited under our pension to 40 hours per month if we work within the same industry.
At my center we are only paid $1 more than "all other" jobs. Which makes it $9.50 an hour. That was last peak. This peak should be $11 since pay rate went up. I wish we got $15.XX an hour. Lol.
Not. A. Snowball's. Chance. In. H*ll!
Sorry, Dave. I can only hope you will feel differently when you get out.
Out where I am if you're a drivers helper outside of peak season you're making top scale driver wages.
A lot can happen in 5 years.
It would be kinda fun.
