Obviously, the hourly rates/ salaries are much different between the UPS Union tractor drivers and the UPS Freight drivers( Overnight). What are these pay differences, and will this possibly change for the better?
True, I had a customer ask me who runs the docks down at UPS freight. I told him I did not know and he said the manager he talked to was an A-hole. He said they lost a pallet with $8,000 worth of goods and that was 2 weeks ago. I hear that in typical fashion, UPS buys something and then has no idea what to do with it.When we (UPS Freight) starting making as much profit and revenue that UPS small package makes, I would bet our salary improves. The problem is that we are a long way from making that profit/revenue compared to small package. It is no different than when we were O, you got to have the freight to make $$ and you have to give good service to keep the freight once you have it.
I'm UPSF, I asked a UPS Feeder Driver and he told me as much as they wanted. He said most weeks they work at least 45 to 50 hours per week and some even work longer. He says that sometimes he works on his off day (4/10) and that day is all time and half. No differnent than any other job. If you work hard and long, you usually make more money. So take $25.00 per hour and start the multiplication.I was just wondering if either one of you knew how much the delivery truck drivers made annually?
I've talked to Boise, Salt Lake, Sacramento, Newark, Fresno, San Jose, Rialto, L.A., And Las Vegas drivers, everybody I talk to is making the same wages exept us at REN Reno, NV. and thats because we were union before ups took over and still considered union now, I just started 1 month ago so i don't know all the details but I do know I'm making less than everybody I talk to.
