    Do you lose your retro check if you get fired 2 weeks before it gets issued?

    I hear they are doing mass firings on the 27th. That must be why.

    Can't imagine the company cutting you a retro check after you've been fired. You have no line of recourse.

    You never worked under that contract, why should you reap the rewards of such contract?

  12. If an employee quits or gets fired before back pay checks get issued then said employee will not be getting said back pay check because said employee does not work for UPS

    You will not get a retro check, you were fired and the contract had not been settled until April 29th. If you feel you have been wronged or screwed over please call 1800PICKUPS they will help you resolve any issue you may have.

    Grieve it if progressive discipline wasn’t followed... unless it was a cardinal sin which then you probably deserved being fired.

    if you quit or get fired, do you get paid out for unused sick, personal and vacation time that you accrued?

    How can he grieve something when he was fired unless he hasn't been to the panel hearing to see of he gets his job back.

    Interesting argument that keeps coming up.

    We understand why you don't get retro pay if you quit or get fired before the issuance of it.

    The part that is curious is the argument that they're not entitled to it because the contract wasn't settled during all this time they've worked. That argument could be applied to all active employees, no? We are getting a retro check for hours worked while the contract wasn't ratified everywhere. Same as an fired employee who worked all these months after Aug 1. They were working under the new language just like everyone else. From a legal standpoint, they are entitled to the back pay. Such things are always going to have two sides to what is legal.

    It's actually the same thing as the company not issuing you your last paycheck because you quit or got fired. No, you still worked those hours. Retro pay is owing workers pay because they didn't change the pay rate on time. That's on them, not the employee.

    That's my line of reasoning exactly. Some lawyer should take on a class-action lawsuit for this. Tons of money to be had!

    Yes, as long as you don't get fired for dishonesty.
