    Hi. Im relativity new to UPS. I have been working here for six months and i have a few questions

    1. Am i entitled to a non-payed vacation? \

    2. What if someone is my family passes, do i get time off work? Do i get paid for this time off??

    3. I would like to get the extra dollar for picking off. Is there a limit to the amount of people on the PD who get the extra dollar and are able to pickoff??

    Thank you so much !!

    As far as the extra dollar goes for pickoffs, I'm not so sure myself. I run a PD Trailer belt in a next day air hub, but we do not pay our High Pick or Low Pick any extra for their duties (not sure if this is because my belt is 1 of 3 PD Trailer style belts compared to the other 20 or so Run-out Air belts). Also, we have low production goals (since it is NDA and has a lot of different S and P splits), so that may have something to do with it. My guess is that there is probably a limit to the number of people that get the Pick Off raise because there is a limited number of people you will need to do the Pick Off (at least, that has been the case for me).

    For bereavement, in the Southern Region, check your contract on Article 29 Section 2.

    *That is, if you are in the Southern Region...

    The contract represents all hourly workers that are union and non-union. As long as the position you are in is loader/unloader, sorter, any type of driver, mainly the general positions. However some office positions are not covered under the contract and of course management is not.

    Keep in mind that you will have to pay union dues, union is only good for if you plan to make a long-term career at UPS. Otherwise it's not worth it, especially if your just a part-timer.

    Id say there probably a limit on the number of people since its classified as a "position" id imagine seniority rules and whoever had the highest seniority that wanted it would get it?
