I’m a Preloader and my Preload rate is $21/ hour. Now during peak i am Doing some driver helper too. On indeed I see postings fro driver helper paying $17/hour. But they’re paying me $12.25/hour for driver helper. Someone please help because they say that they’re allowed to pay me $12.25 for driver helper and not the $17 that’s advertised. North east. Local 252.

I made an account just to post this. Been with UPS over 3 years now but this is my first week doing driver help. Why am I not at $17 like posted on indeed?

I don't know what your rate is supposed to be in your local but whatever is posted on indeed is irrelevant. What you need is what was posted on the bus sheet you signed or whatever your local supplement says.

The two jobs each have a different pay rate. When you work preload, you'll make the $21. When you driver help, you'll make the other one. At our hub, drivers helpers make $15.50 an hour. I declined doing that work.

It's a vicious cycle
check your supplement, in mine (atlantic) whenever you work two tasks in a day with different pay rates, you get the higher rate for all hours worked.

You're in JC28.

Call your local and speak with your BA about your pay.

Found my answer, says i should be making what i am sadly😅..so how can they be posting the job for almost 25% more then? Are new hires just really mad when they get their first check and find out they where lied to? Or are they getting payed more behind our backs to more help in?

Until recently outside hires were paid less than inside helpers. The problem now is no one wants to do the job and the contract is behind the times and handicapping the union to get its members better pay.
