    Hi everyone! I was just hired for the preload shift & I keep reading about these weekly bonuses. I was never told about a attendance bonus does that mean I won't get it?

    If you haven't heard of it then you probably won't get it.

    Your attendance bonus is not contractual, at any given time the company can discontinue them. It is more than likely going to be eliminated if this tentative contract is ratified, so plan accordingly.

    The concept of attendance bonuses for the newer employees is a clear indicator that there is something wrong about our starting hourly rates (part-time and full time). It has been stated on this site that part timers consist of 65 percent of our membership, most do not last five years and will not qualify for any pension contributions or benefits because of the vesting. Any new hire will be starting out close to the state's minimum wages, right now in some states it is higher.

    Many moons ago the rule of thumb for a union job was generally twice the minimum wage, times have changed.

    hey, not really sure how the bonus works either. It is offered in the location I plan on applying at. It's a plus, but I like the morning shift (already used to it from my current job) I'm a college student and I like that they help with school. If I get a call back from them, and find out how it works I'll let you know. Good luck!

    You will get the $13 (or more) raise sometime next month (or later, or never).

    You're not gettin it bud.
    When you get your first paycheck, be sure to make it to your car before opening and looking at it. It's embarrassing to cry in the building in front of everyone else.

    It's funny because you're supposed to show up every day for the first 30 days anyways. And now you're getting paid extra to do what you're supposed to do.:euro::confused::confused:

    It's really pathetic that this company has to offer bonuses to get people to show up for work. UPS needs to step up the pay to be competitive and draw good people. This shouldn't be a contract issue. Some of these Locals need to give new hires a break on initiation fees too.
