    I'm having a hard time understanding it. I was told it was a progression scale so the first few raises were in the .35 raise. So on Feb. 1st I get another .35 cent raise then on August 1st I get an .85 cent raise. But, everyone that I've asked about this isn't sure.

    On April 1st it will be my 4th year with the company. I'm in Portland (OR) in the Western Region.

    I understand it can be like pulling teeth around here in regards to questions like this, but I thought what the heck its worth a shot.

    You should be receiving a $0.375 raise on Feb 1st, and then a $0.425 raise on August 1st. The other half of the $0.85 raise will happen on Feb 1st 2012 as another $0.425 raise. August 1st 2012 and February 1st 2013 will both give you another $0.475 raise for the total of $0.95 for the 2012 raise.

    Found in Article 22 of the NMA.

    Yeah, it could certainly be nicer, but I suppose this was a cost savings move made possible by the recession that was getting started at contract negotiation time.
    We still get "decent" raises and it helps the company save some money at the time.

    You get the same raises that everyone else get that was hired before August 1, 2008. These small yearly raises are the reason why we FT driver make what we do. Alot of people these days don't get any rasies some even get there pay cut.

    You don't tell your Seniority Date (4/1/07 or 4/1/08???) and current pay rate, but since you are still in the five year progression, the rest of Article 22, Section 5 may be revelant . . .
