Thanks for the $1000.00 Friday, UPS
Maninbrown used his optional day Friday (used to be Election Day), so he received 8 hours pay plus double time for all hours worked.
I know why the union negotiated to make it optional for flexibility, but it was much more fun on Election day!
Started with UPS in 1975. And I have no idea what you're talking about. Triple time for Election Day? Never
heard of it.
All I'm saying is in our district we never had Election Day as a holiday. I never knew anybody had Election Day as a holiday.
One of the two option days in my local can be used in this fashion. You can take a paid day. Or you can work and get 8 straight and DT for all hours worked. When you take the latter option it's called Election Day.
It should be re-named Uncle Sam day because I am going to get smoked in taxes
The key is to plan ahead----adjust your W-4 on the Thursday of the week before you expect to have the extra pay.
This is what I do. I do it a week ahead of time though just to be safe.
The only problem with that is it may kick in earlier that you would like. Generally you can adjust your W-4 anytime after 3 pm or so on the Wednesday before the payday that you are concerned about.
I do this whenever I go on vacation. I zero out my 401k and adjust my W-4 to 9.
What's the reasoning behind that, Dave?
Do you mean the week before the PayDay? I can see my paycheck Wednesday morning on UPSers.
Local 177 supplement.
And how do you zero out 401k? I'd like to adjust my withholding percentage, just don't know where or how to do that.
Zeroing out the 401k contribution is done through their website----www.retirement.prudential.com
Adjusting the W-4 is done through upsers.com
Taking it the week of Thanksgiving is maximizing that day if you work Black Friday.
So you adjust your withholding to pay less taxes and zero your 401k to pay more taxes?
I'm off Friday too....4 hrs at double time and a half to sit on my ass....don't mind if I do!!! Lmao
Ahhh don't forget Local 804 supplement....we have it too!
I adjust both to get the maximum take home for my vacation.
It all works out in the end.
