    I talked to a preloader who does his regular job and because of seniority he picks up a few extra hours clearing penns after drivers leave and some other cleanup. He does not want to drive. With 22.4 a new kid with no seniority takes his work. All those years of paying dues and waiting and some new kid can take it all away for less money and no seniority.

    22.4 Is a betrayal of the holy grail. Seniority.

    He probably didn't vote anyway.

    So blame him. Sorry.

    I wish I could only get the 3.5 hr so I could get another job. I average 6 1/2 hours/day being PT. In my outbound everyone except me takes the bus so they all have to leave early. That leaves me all by myself to put in all the bulk in all the trucks. Management thinks I’m being rewarded more hours for being a hard worker, but it feels like I am being punished since I am doing the hardest part of the job alone.

    I never understood why anyone would want to be part time at ups besides to become a driver or management. Most of them are making peanuts. The only reasoning I can think of is healthcare. I suppose that's a good enough reason for people.

    Lots of reasons. Health care as you mentioned, students (especially in the buildings with tuition reimbursement), 2nd job, kids, etc

    He's a pre-1982 red circled part-timer making top rate.

    Not a bad gig.

    Everyones situation is different.

    50 hours last week and this week is starting off with 2 11 hour days. What a 22.4 job will look like? But at least I make top rate.

    The happiest UPSers I know are part timers who are self-employed or have pretty good day jobs. They’re just around for the benefits for the family, a little exercise and some extra spending money.
