    Package_Donkey14 milk was a bad choice

    Just an FYI here.. The people in my hub that are currently in a progression DID receive a 70 cent raise on their checks this week. I'm guessing that must mean they will also receive a retro check as well..

    I'm a driver in Philly and my son made seniority as a driver last June. He checked his pay rate today and he also received the .70 raise. He was told by the union that he wouldn't receive the raise because he was in progression. That means that he will be receiving a retro check later this month. I'm happy for him but I hope that UPS doesn't come back in a few months and say that everyone in progression should not have received the raise and try to take money back. I've seen it happen more than once in the 21 years that I've been at UPS.

    All union employees should get a retro check, regardless of tenure. The way I read the contract is that you're in the progression scale, or the scale of raises, not both. So I'm not sure how someone in progression gets the .70 also.

    I started full time driving in September. So I really have no clue what I will be getting. I guess I'll just have to wait and see.

    I just compared checks from this week and last week. Looks like I got a 59 cent raise instead of the 70.

    I started driving Sept 10th. Made book in Jan. Salary jumped from 16.10 to 17.25. Then I saw my check today it's at 18.75. Retro check hopefully on the way as well to make up for the 7+ months I was making less then the new starting rate of 18.75

    Section 5 (a) is for employees who gained seniority before Aug 1, 2013.

    Section 5 (b) is for employees that are hired or gain seniority after Aug 1, 2013.

    so really this starting wage increase everyone has been talking about amounts to 50 cents short term, 63 cents long term... disappointing

    so in 2018 jan 1st ill be seniority + 4 making 13.50 then a new contract will come out and ill get that raise aug 1st (70 cents or what ever the new contract is)? correct?
