    I have been at UPS for going on two years now. I have been here since high school as a part timer. I am not aloud to go driving because i am not 21 yet haha! i was wondering if in this next contract they are going to lower the driver rate for me? or would i be grandfathered in IF they did because i was hired under this contract? thank you guys

    are they going to lower the driver rate in this next contract? or does no one know yet? and if so would i be grandfathered in with the old one since i was hired under that one ?

    You would be under the new contract when you go driving. Whatever and whenever that will be. Going from PT to FT is just like starting a new job including filling out a new application.

    Try to go regular full-time if it's available. If you go hybrid then you will be at a lower rate.

    Hybrid is a new thing proposed in the next contract. Hybrid drivers are full time, work weekends and earn less than regular package car drivers.

    Just keep your driving record clean, gain seniority and go from there. If and when you can go driving and there's no hybrid positions its better for you.

    The proposed top driver rate is going up by $4.15/hr by the end of the next contract. The worse that can happen is there is a wage freeze and no one see's that happening. Although there are a lot of UPS Teamsters that would accept that instead of a labor dispute and a work stoppage.

    Yeah just some of the
    some of the drivers at my hub say “the new contract is going to lower the driver rate by 4-5$ an hour for you guys” so i am curious if that is true

    They are talking about the new proposed Art 22.4 combo driver classification. Does not effect current or new FT driver wages.

    RPCD wages are not changing. That's regular package car driver. The only decrease in wages is the new hybrid driver proposed in the next contract.

    Question in the hybrid driver thing. So let’s say I’m currently PT and I go hybrid driver.. can I later then go from hybrid to FT driver? Or would I be stuck at hybrid?

    Since a hybrid driver is FT you should be able to bid a FT driver position before PT.
