    ok i dont know if this is the right place to post this or if this needs to be moved to union issues or not? I am a season/cover driver and a pre-loader. i did a little bit of both last week. how ever i have my hours accounted for on my check. but there is something new in the details section that says guarentee. here what it looks like

    - REGULAR (seasonal driver wage) 10.77hr

    - REGULAR (loader wage) 7.07 hr

    - OVERTIME (driver) 1.98 hr

    - GUARANTE (loader) 5.98 hr

    Thanks for telling us. I don't think I could have made it through the day without knowing that. :biggrin: As to your question, it could be in either forum, but will probably be moved.

    Maybe I didn't phrase my question correctly. I am asking what this guarentee is at my loading wage. I have never seen this before

    Uh, I'm not 100% sure if this is the case, but every time I've seen "guarantee" used for pay it's because the hours actually worked were less than the contractual guarantee. A preloader would have 3.5 and a driver would have 8 hours normally guaranteed. If you're working both I'd doubt you'd be working less than the guarantee so I'm not sure why it's there.

    Your most accurate answer would come from asking your management to get a clarification from payroll, they'd be able to tell you what time you were coded for and where the guarantee line comes from.

    They guarantee to screw you in the near future and this is your compensation.

    Well one of the days I worked full 5 hour shift of pre-load. And another one of my days I was scheduled to drive, but was not needed and came on pre-load for 1.5 hours to help clean up the disaster. So I could see getting 2hr of guarantee. I just don't know about the other 3. I had a 10 hr driving day. Then the next day only shuttled air/ground for about 2 hours. 1.5 hr preload on WED no work thurs and 5 hours preload Friday

    Think of it this way. "Guarantee" is UPS lingo for "free money". Don't ever question it.

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    Free money is only free until they realize they screwed up and take it back.

    But if you're really lucky they don't catch it....

    Sometimes by asking about it is how they catch it.

    The guarantee pay on your check is to make up the difference between your daily guarantee and hours worked.

    The day that you shuttled ground and the two days you worked the short preload shifts are the days you received your guarantees. The way I'm interpreting what you're telling us is that you didn't hit your guaranteed 3.5 hours in any of those three days and you were paid free money as a result.

    Thanks for coming in, go Bucs.
