    So what can one expect as pay as a feeder truck driver? And how does it ever change? Does it ever contain any kind of mileage pay, or is that a ups freight thing?

    I believe $.64 a mile(doubles), $.03 more if your doing sleeper. $27.29 and hour or $27.94 for doubles
    This is off the top of my head though.

    You off the street for UPS? Off the street for UPSF? Which?

    Top feeder driver pay:

    Hourly: 27.735 for doubles

    Mileage: 63.31 cents per mile/sleeper teams receive two cents
    mile additional but that is mileage rate is split
    between the two drivers.

    Subsistence: $25 for each 1,000 miles driven for sleeper

    Just curious, I'm a ramp transport driver for FedEx Express here in SoCal. What does a topped out feeder driver that drivers a tractor trailer to and from the airport make?

    For example I have been driving for Express for just over 12 years and I make slightly more than 22 an hour.

    Thanks, a pro union FedEx driver.

    Feeders here, as of Aug 1st, make around 29/hr as a top rate. It takes 3 years to get to top rate.

    Considering how much weight a lot of feeder drivers carry around I thought they paid them in pork chops. :lol:

    I kid I kid...

    Thanks. I knew I was making less than you guys, I just wanted to know how much less, especially since this "brown bailout" stuff has started. They put a flyer out at work trying to tell us that we made MORE than an air driver. LOL

    The big thing for you all reaching top rate, as you know. Sure FedEx pay STARTS reasonably well but it takes half a lifetime to top out it seems. If FedEx tilted the wage scale in favor of the employee, that alone might keep the union out for awhile longer. (if the legislation flies)

    Our air drivers are making more than 22/hr. Also, I am working inside 8 hours and make more than that. my rate will be $23.85/hr or around there Aug 1st

    I get 28.94 pulling singles and 29.49 pulling doubles. Depends on your local agreement what your pay rate will be.

    Not sure of our mileage rate.

    If you go as young as possible, maybe you will make it to old age in one piece!

    Seriously, don't wait.
