I’m curious about my pick off raise and that if management could take my dollar raise away from me because they put a new pick off on my belt and know we have 5 including myself. Also how many can a belt have on a belt and can they use that as there excuse to deduct it from my pay?

I thought they were going to fire him for not going fast enough.

What pick off raise? Pick off was never a skilled position.

You've never worked in small sort, have you?
I did smalls, that was a skilled position. Maybe you guys have different pick off jobs. Ours consists of scanning and tossing packages into one, maybe two, trailers. It can get challenging sometimes, but to say it required skill is a stretch.

Small sort is no longer a skilled position with the scanners and the bins that light up. HVD and LVD are skilled positions.

Ah. Ours is different. We have two different levels of "pickoffs". One, we call the "L", and that one sorts into 5 doors. The "H", is a two man team, and sorts into 5 doors as well.

Small sort, on the other hand....you hold a package under a light while looking at a keypad with 24 buttons on it. The light scans the package, the keypad lights up to show you which bin to toss the package into (you have 24 corresponding bins to chose from, and those bins have lights that blink as well). My 5 year old can handle small sort.

Not in our area. They did away with the raise that comes along with learning those positions. I know this from first hand experience, as I've been trained (and have worked a few weeks) on the LVD, and am currently training on the HVD as a backup.

Hopefully my bid for an air driver position goes through, and I won't have to worry about loading or pick-off anymore (although I like pickoff).

The last contract did away with the extra Dollar sort pay. Not sure if they took away the Dollar for sorters who have been in the position before last contract.

Yep. I just started with UPS this past August, so I'm SOL on that dollar. I'm just happy to get out of the trailers. I don't mind loading per se, but, given the choice I'll choose pick off every time versus loading.

Our center still doesn't have the smalls system you describe, so the skill level seems to be inverted between our buildings. Cool, thanks for the insight.

Interesting. Next time I'm in that section (as they will randomly send loaders over there to help), if I remember, I'll take a video so you can see it first hand.
