    I've been in small sort now for 6 months now, and call me greedy, but I'm looking forward to my first raise. Can anyone tell me if its based on merit, or if it is a standard amount? Thanks for your help.

    It's a union position therefore not merit.

    You have to dump 100 bags per hour to be considered for a payraise

    To get the big raises some people cheat by starting in the primary and unload bags, someone should file a grievance on that

    I agree...I think it's Article 18.5 under the NMA

    All raises at UPS are based on height or length. Hope you have at least one of those.

    Incorrect, if the person was hired after Aug 1st 2008, no?

    I started with the company on January 10, 2009 so is that good or bad?

    You may get a raise if you sort in the small sort. A sorter, I believe, is a skilled position, so you should get a dollar/hour raise. Or was this changed in the last contract?


    speaking of raises can any western conf bros out there that can tell me what our raise will be in aug I guess I could look it up but...

    Apparently it is actually half of $.75/hr this year. Last year was $.70. I still do not know what the union and UPS will work out to cut $.75 in half!

    You are correct. Who would have known that you can divide .75 in half. I just checked my contract and it reads Aug 2009 .375 cents an hour. Thanks Sleeve:smart:
