Grievance on Feeder start pay?

I'm probably not going to sound so smart as I don't know all of the information or terminology, but here's the jist...

I'm in 776, feeder driver hired last June. Right before peak began, grievances were aired and filed that a couple of drivers were hired in at peak rate but they hit full time before peak started. Evidently this happened at other places in the country but I don't know how many. It is going to the national board, if that's the correct term, that convenes here shortly. 776 is apparently deferring representing the case to another local somewhere else in the country as they are considered having more knowledge of presenting a grievance of this nature.

I'm just wondering if anyone on here has heard anything similar? I have yet to see anyone mention it anywhere outside of what I hear in Harrisburg or Carlisle. The stewards and BA's say it's definitely a real thing that's proceeding, that it's a valid grievance with a strong case, but they also think that it will go the company's way. Anyway, not really wondering about likely outcomes, just more curious if anyone has heard the same that is in a different local. Thanks in advance, sorry for the long post.

So am I correct to assume the peak drivers were hired on full time off the street and red circled at their peak rate instead of starting with the progression?
 
Supposedly there were 2 in our building. Found out Wednesday that the grievance was heard at the national board a week or two ago and deadlocked so it is moving on to the next next stage, a mediator I think?

Sorry, yes the point of the grievance is that guys with less seniority were paid more. Specifically the peak rate, which was $33/hr. They hit their 30 for FT right before peak started but were put at 33/hr.

Im sure you have heard that in the central California city of visalia, they hired feeder positions off the street and skipped the progression. They got full rate from day 1. It's been happening.
 
Isn't this whole board basically worrying about the other guy? Lol. I of course have interest in the grievance, it could result in a substantial penalty(if that's the correct word).

And you are absolutely correct about trouble hiring. Carlisle/Harrisburg/York is one of the biggest trucking centers in the country. I've heard the same driver shortage BS even before I started driving 28 years ago, but here lately it actually Is a thing. Every company in the area has raised starting pay and giving hiring bonuses.

Our building as of last week went to 28 an hour starting wage. Huge boon for me as I only started with UPS last June. Big for a lot of our guys actually as we have a lot of off the street hires in the last 2 to 3 years.

Happened here as well.

I thought a bigger stink would have been made at that time.
