Part time seniority progression

Hello everyone. I'm a part time ramper up in Alaska. I have been on vacation for 4 weeks, and have heard rumors of a supposed wage increase. The problem is, I can't find anything like that in regards to ramp employees, article 22 is what I fall under, I believe. Anyone have any idea? And if so, do we know if we'll get seniority progression? This is my 4th year now, and I'll be really pissed off if I have a new-hire making the same as I am.

3 weeks vacation and 1 option, plus I'm high in seniority so I get the dates I apply for. Either way, anyone have any idea for the main topic?

Okay, this does not address my topic. My topic question is if anyone knows if they'll account for seniority, or, because I don't make $13.00 an hour already, if I will just be bumped up, and they won't recognize seniority levels?

According to our Joint Council 10 call, you will get the greater of either the 13 pay bump or the standard wage increase of .75
If you make 12.00, you will get the 1.00 raise to 13
If you make 12.50, you'll get the .75 wage increase to 13.25

That actually makes sense. Nothing at UPS makes sense. Hopefully it will be true

That is Sean O'Brien's understanding of the language interpreted to him from Thursday's call.
Unfortunately, even he doesn't have a copy of the proposed Master proposal.

Yes, the explanation does make sense, but not the method. The Union and UPS basically just :censored2: on our seniority. Driver's and full time rampers would not stand for this whatsoever. I'm smelling an equal representation grievance.

I might not have put in as much time as the 10+ years employees, but I'll be damned if some sprat new hire is making as much as I am.

Yeah, still doesn't make it right. Besides, reading the contract language for "Air-drivers", they're going to have their seniority recognized, so why the :censored2: can't the other job classifications?

That would be a NLRB complaint, not a grievance against the union.
Good luck with that one

Welcome to union life.....
where your seniority matters more than anything.
