If you make 11 dollars a hour and are going up to 15 a hour. You will NOT be getting 4 dollars worth of retro pay from August 1st. The language is manipulated.
What is start pay at now like 10 or 11and it will be bumped up to 13 so they are going to get 2 or 3 dollars times their hours worked. That's s big checkThe language says that pay is retroactive to august 1st. They have been telling new hires for the last 6 months that they will get backpay and a retro check once the new contract takes effect. There isn't much room for interpretation here. The text is crossed out because it needs to be updated to show changes of the new contract. There's just nothing UPS can do to escape this one, and if they try they are asking for more negative press and probably a lawsuit. At this rate the contract is already going to be almost a year late.
