    hello,

    I've been getting a lot of conflicting information on this and was wondering if anyone knows the answer. I was hired off the street for package delivery (part-time)and my first day of work was the day after memorial day this year.

    being that I'm off the street and never worked inside previous to hiring as PDL, when do I start 4 year progression to top rate? obviously I am reg temp, but I have 2 other friends that i know are at top rate now (one of them) and other will be hitting top rate this September and both are reg-temp.

    supervisor(and several other ups people I've talked to) said I will hit top rate in 4 years. our HR person, said something about not being eligible for contractual raises until I'm full time.

    I dont know where else to go for this info and was hoping for clarity.

    Check to see if you are seasonal. Some places allow a summer time seasonal period. If you are, you’ll need to qualify sometime after Labor Day. Other than that, find the guy named Stu tomorrow morning and ask him. Good luck.

    Looks like HR bagged another one. You’ll probably be offered a 22.4 position eventually if the Contract pushes through as-is. Worked up to your DOT hour limit regularly and discarded when you’ve had enough. They’re keeping you in-orbit as a seasonal in the meantime.

    do you mind elaborating on what a 22.4 position is?

    How are we supposed to know?
    We come in and do our job each day, then some come on here to vent....

    A new underclass of FT drivers that will be paid less, work weekends and have no overtime protections.

    I don't agree with the positive spin put on the new classification on this page, but also don't want to produce a detailed description. So here ya go.

    Easy there. Your only way to remain with UPS might be as a PT insider if UPS ends up telling you that you are indeed only a seasonal driver. Might be into the center or hub for you after everybody gets back from summer vacations.

    I'd go back to a real job. Won't be working inside.

    Not trying to be rude, but why are you asking questions here if you're so well-connected?

    Well, good for you. Tomorrow starts a new Contract period. Sounds like you've been getting dragged so you don't make your 30 in time if you've been on since Memorial Day.

    they're not in hr and dont have answers to exact pay progression. friends with 6 drivers before I joined and all have given different renditions of occurs before one reaches top rate. HR girl is clueless. no where else to ask.
     
  19. Sounds about right
